A browner beer than I expected, given that it is named House Red and is an Amber Ale. It had a very sweet smell that was intriguing. The taste was darker than I expected with chocolate overtones and a slight bitterness. It had a slightly unpleasant aftertaste but overall was an enjoyable ale.

Craft beer advent calendar day 8 playing catch up on day 9... Pours a hazy deep copper/brown a creamy dull white head and a little lace. Aroma is caramel, nutty, buttery, and moderate sweetness. Flavour is caramel, toast, faint chocolate, carbonation is a bit high, medium stale herbal/citrus/earthy bitterness. Fairly average beer.

dresden (1235) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Rusty brown and clear with a big head that laces a lot. Aroma is light, but its mostly a light malt, slightly floral hops. Taste is a nutty malt base, with a medium bitterness and a watery palate. It’s a good amber, easy to drink a lot of this I’m sure.

CBAC day 8.Pours a rusty brown with a nice frothy light brown head that leaves lots of lace. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, chocolate and some earthy hops. Taste is caramel malts, toast, nuts, earthy hops and some light sweet chocolate. Not sure why there are so many bad ratings I don?t have any metallic off flavors and this is how an American red ale should be imo. Semi dry finish with a medium low bitterness, very refreshing and drinkable.

MunBro (886) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Advent day 8. This "red" ale smells metallic and not really drinkable. Notes of malts and citrus, I agree the taste was off. INCREDIBLY foamy. Took forever for the head to die down. Every sip turned to foam in my mouth. Would not drink willingly.

341ml brown bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar. An orangey red pour, clear. Fat tan head. Nose has caramel malt with citrus hops. Taste has grain, a bit of caramel, nut, bit of orange. Quite a light and plain finish, a trace of citrus. Seems a bit watery, not enough going on here.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Day 8. Advent Calendar. Dirty very dark amber with thick head and lace. Aroma is dusty without much profile. Metallic, off flavour. Does not taste clean. Second mouthful is a tentative decision. Can’t convince myself this was intentional.
