Not the sort of beer I would normally drink, but I had heard good things and wanted to give it a try. A beautiful colour, with what I thought was dark caramel/brown sugar aroma. Much the same on the taste, caramel and toffee. A much lighter body than I was expecting. Not a bad beer for a change of pace, I could only drink one of these though, not sessionable in my opinion at all.

Taps translucent mahogany with a fine-bubbled buff head. Aroma features notes of toasted malt and caramel. Flavor offers strong caramel, cinnamon, clove, and average malty character. Mouthfeel delivers typical body and good fizz. Take this trolley!

Pour this in a glass and is call it Amber Bock or Killians. Pretty bland red ale, only got it because all they had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a red amber with small foam head. Aroma is malty with berry and hints of raisin. Taste is different than most beers, malty and hoppy with a sweet berry and raisin flavor finish. This beer surprised me when I first drank it, since the taste wasn’t typical. Its a good beer I will drink it again.

Bottle sample at Ran and Dale’s. Thanks Rachel! Clear red. Raspberry, cherry, then some toast in the nose. Mild bitterness, berry and then sweetness. Mild carbonation, light body. Meh.

Odd to see poor reviews of this. Great quaffable red. Aroma is that of raisins and dark fruit. Carries through to the taste with some caramel and toffee notes. Mouth feel medium but clean finish.

Not sure what beer the deScription is for but it is not the beer I tasted. Weak aroma of fruits and nuts, pours a clear reddish brown color with a short lasting off white head. A watery body with a weak nutty taste and a slightly fruity finish.
