Nice reddish appearance, good head formation. Very grainy in aroma. Sweet biscuity and toasted malt palate, mild bitterness in the finish.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 13, 2005
Draft at the Sheraton San Diego - Darkish amber in color. The beer may have been too cold, but it did not seem to have a strong/distinctive aroma. Not much going in the hop arena either. Decent maltiness. Not much going on here...

Copper, clear with a minimal off white head. Nose of caramel malts. Sweet, somewhat creamy with a tad of spice.

brettpace (176) - New York City, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Not a very good beer at all. Your much better sticking with AleSmith and Stone beers. Malty, not very hoppy at all, did not enjoy the aftertaste.

ALLOVATE (2591) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2012
At just on cool and into a shaker. Radiant ruby red body that sparkles in the light. No visible carbonation sees the already fragile, frothed up head disappear altogether. Nose has hints of twiggy bark, roasted nuts, sultanas and bitter/sweet raisins all doused sticky, salted caramel. Sweet, sweet, sweeeeeeeeeet! First mouthful is teeth rattling with the ’toffee brittle’ of my youth springing to mind. Treacle and tannic sweet wine, light rust and grain husks dance amongst the toffeeish malts. There is a lively spritz by that otherwise invisible carbonation. Body is light but the cloying sweetness gives the illusion of something bigger. Bitter, sweet and astringent swallow tails off into the land of rusted metal. Starts off great guns but is downhill from there. It is drinkable, but my blood sugar levels just sprang up a few points!! (12fl.Oz, BBE 02/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Not much happening in this one. Good copper color, no head and not much finish. Cannot recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (13398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2003
Bright orangey-amber. All crystal malt and bread crust. What more can I say - yawn.

presario (4877) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2007
Brought by Tipsy to the tasting. Looks like a red ale. Almost no head. Almost no aroma. Some vanilla in the flavour. Lots of toast. Actuallly a touch better than expected.

BOLTZ7555 (2958) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Biscuit and mild sweetness...with a crimson body and extremely small head. Just wasn’t impressed by anything from this brewery...but the food was pretty damn good!!!
