COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after our location, this red ale gets its beautiful rich red color from a dark 120 crystal malt. Lightly bittered with the Tettnanger hop and flavored with cascade hops, this ale has a very smooth, easy finish.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 11/9/12

Aroma: It has sweet caramel malts, a little spice, along with some herbal and earthy hops
Appearance: It pours a dark orange-amber with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is just a little bit sweet with a balancing herbal hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it is overly fizzy on the mouth, but otherwise it has a decent feel
Overall Impression: Not a bad beer at all. The nose was actually pretty interesting, and the taste was solid as well. The fizziness definitely hurts the drinkability, but it is still a solid one overall.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours very ruddy copper with a fizzy beige head. Aroma is mixed herb and caramel. Has an interesting tang. Med body more or less. Definitely caramel, perhaps a bit of diacetyl. Hop bitter seems herb more than grass. After a bit it seems a bit floral and spicy with grassy bitter. This is not a typical blah amber. It has some interesting character. You should try it once at least.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish amber with a thin tan head that is gone by the second sip and leaves partial lace. The aroma is malt with a bit of dried leaves. If there is Cascade in here, thereís no sign of it in the aroma. The flavor is malt and starts drying out almost immediately. Mild-moderate hops bitterness at the finish contributing little flavor. Dry at the finish as well. Iím not getting any impact from the Cascade hops. Dull and uninteresting.

Sample at the brewery - Faint malt, shortlived head, light body, watery texture

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 26, 2010
22oz bottle, purchased in upstate NY, courtesy of my dad. Thanks! Pours a bright, orange-amber color with pretty high clarity; yellow edges; thin, mixed-bubbled light-tan head with patchy retention and lacing. Some diacetyl most definitely in the aroma (appearing as butterscotch, so not terrible), a modest spicy hop note, and possibly some quiet toffee notes and fruit getting mostly lost behind the diacetyl; very quiet, though not especially off-putting. Medium-light mouthfeel; modest carbonation. The diacetyl / butterscotch note is more pronounced in the mouth, coupled to some basic red fruitiness and a very quiet crystalline sugar character; more troubling is a slightly lactic (I think; itís not huge) tartness that didnít show through in the nose; thereís some citrus hop flavor present along with that mild spiciness from the nose; overall, a couple brewing flaws atop a very basic amber ale recipe; the carbonation is very sloppy and just falling out of this beer. They really need to work on sanitation and brewing technique (that diacetyl needs to be the first to go). Medium finish showing some nice spicy hoppiness and a light fruit note.

PapaSkeetSkeet (806) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours amber with a light, thin tan head. Smells of berries, pine, grass, toffee. Tastes of blueberries, slight grain. Very smooth, good overall impression, drinkable.

Ron (2441) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2010
2010 Autumn Festival of Ales - This was labeled as a red ale and as such was very red in color. I donít know if there was much malt in there, cause I just smelled and tasted the hops. Too much for me.

I absolutely loved this beer. I tried it as part of their sampler, and I wound up buying a growler of it to take home. Itís got a really intriguing taste that is sooo familiar, but I just canít quite place it. When you go to the brewery to try this beer, ask them to let you see/smell the malt. Itís got a rich odor, and it helps you isolate the taste of the malt from the tastes of the hops.
