UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Aroma is sweet toffee and some dried fruit. Appearance is a darker red than what most would consider an amber ale. Flavor is toffee, fruit, some vanilla. It is exceptionally smooth and easy to drink, but this stuff gives me a wicked hangover for some reason. Good for an amber. More flavor than most.

I had this beer on tap at the brewhouse and loved it. The beer as smooth and fullbodied, it went well with the steak I had.

Smells malty with a hint of caramel. This has a bit more hops from the start than the first three of the sampler. Some light caramel that sticks to the front of your gums. Decent stuff.

Bottle via the Beer Gnome at work.. thank oh kind and gentle creature. Pours a brilliant amber/ copper with light tan head that completly disapears. Moderate nose of sweet malts and some grass. Body is just under the full requirement but is nonethelss bold. Sweet caramel malts are nearly chewy and long lasting. A luxuriously silky finish. hops quietly tinker in the background.

Bottle. Transparent amber pour. Big tan head that recedes to half an inch. Aroma is a ton of caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, a little alcohol, and some sourness. Medium body and carbonation.

Appearance was clear orange red with creamy off white diminishing 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel, pale malts, fig, dates and toffee, no hops or alcohol. Taste are sweet malt of toffee, caramel vanillas, touch of date, fig and chocolate. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with meduim body, average length slightly English sweet dryish finish. One of the best red’s out there.
