Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
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.

A solid red ale, pours a red copper, with slight head. Aroma of toast and nutty maltiness. Flavour is the same with subtle chocolate. Finish is dry and smooth, very light on the palate.

MunBro (942) - 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 (4903) - 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.

BytownJon (56) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Deep red colour but nothing too scary. Decent ale with some nutty toastiness to it, but not too metallic. Could have had a bitterness to it, but the the hops take care of that.

A decent red ale. Some smokey notes and red malt flavour. Pours a medium yellow head atop a red body. Fairly typical.
