very tart nose, deep red body with a fluffy tan head, tart flavor as well as aroma, cherries, very acidic, malty with some slight bitters in the finish, the beer says "drink me", but the lable says "excuse me while I light my spliff".

I grabbed this beer first figuring it would be the crappy one of the bunch. Proving once again that the look of a bottle can be deceiving. This beer is really damn good - this is one I could see myself drinking on a regular basis.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Sweet cola flavours, with some nutty caramel. Pretty sweet and thin. Even not knowing anything about the beer of the brewery, i still didn’t expect much, don’t know why that is.

Nice red color. Sweet taste, fruity esters. Slight bitter. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Murky, fruity flavors. Definitely more malt than bitter. Tastes more like a fruity pale ale than a red ale.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thought I was picking up the IPA, the labels are too similar. Protein inflicted amber/brown color with a moderate ecru head. Sweet aromas of tropical fruit and light bananas, reminds me a bit of fruit punch with a light chocolate malt tint. First sip reveals loads of fresh mowed grass... I continue to chew or graze as it may be. Light chocolate, caramel and a zippy hops bite come later. Late maltiness provides a respite from the menagerie of aromas and flavors. This one really is all over the place.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad amber ale although it seemed more like an APA, hazy brown in color, very minimal head, malty nose, a decent amount of hops in the flavor ofset by a good malt profile, tasted more like a pale ale than an amber ale, still very drinkable & still a decent beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden, thin head. Aroma is malty, and with some licorice. Flavor is fruity from cherry, malty and sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber color with a light off-white head. The aroma is lightly caramelly and light. The flavor is balanced but boring, standard; cookie-cutter. Finishes well with a nice hop bite following through. Decent.
