COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal Winner at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival. Silver Medal Winner at the 2010 World Beer Cup. This handsome ale is created by balancing a selection of crystal and caramel malts, then moderately hopped resulting in a rich, full flavored satisfying brew.

Half pint on tap. Clear amber color, small head. Taste is good but their imperial red is better in almost every way. Bitter and burnt are the two prary tastes, with not enough malts to balance. Forgettable. Mediocre, I’d pass.

Clear amber color out of the bottle with a quickly vanishing khaki head. Light malty nose. Sweet beer with lots of caramel and some table sugar. Notes of marmalade on toast. Some orange juice in the finish. Okay beer.

Aah, whatever; it tastes like a homebrew. It has a nice and subtle sweetness: a slightly nutty ale, however, with nothing to boast. The aroma is safe. I bet if I chopped some trees in a forest, I might really enjoy it. Hm. So, typical. If anything, the appearance has some very nice and sparkly lacing -- tilt your glass to the left and then to the right, etc. It doesn’t happen with all beers. Maybe I should drink this beer some more...

Can, enjoyed at the lake. Medium amber with golden highlights. Nice toasty caramel aroma and flavour, breadcrusts, yum. Tea-like hops deliver a finish that is just bitter enough. Nice little amber from a can.
