COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich and robust amber ale. Hiding just beyond its malty core is a crisp, clean, hoppy aura that will open your eyes to the other side.

In a chilled mug. Poured a deep, dark amber - pretty much brown unless you hold it up to the light. Head small, light tan. Aroma is malts and alcohol. Nice malts at the front, with a moderate hop finish. Nothing profound, but nice stuff!

Ever so slightly hoppy but a malty red amber ale taste. Deep burgundy red color with the minimal foam. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

It poured a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of toffee and citrus. The taste was of citrus hops, nutty notes and a bit of toffee. It had a medium body with a very slight lingering bitterness. Nice.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours mahogany amber with a fluffy off-white head and busy carbonation roaring up the center of the glass. The aroma is similar to a nut brown with its caramel maltiness and nuttiness. It is also a tad soapy and sweet. The body is creamy and medium. The taste is nice and sweet with a full does of caramel malts and a modest hopped finish that coats the back of my throat.

This beer looks like a brown ale, and guess what it tastes like it too. Maybe 10% more hoppy flavor added in, but overall not a bad choice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is malts, mild dark fruit and earthy and sweet notes. The flavor is malts, citrus, fruit, a small hint of hop resin and a mild/medium bitter/dryish finish.

EtTuCthulhu (1006) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2013
The aroma of this beer is a fairly simple mixture of strong caramel malts and light floral hops, but the clear dark ruby color with a medium off-white head is very, very pleasing to the eye. The taste, however, isn’t anything remarkable with the mild sourness and touch of bitterness, and the mouthfeel combines a long yet light finish, medium body, thin texture, and a lively carbonation with lots of soft bubbles on the tongue.

Pretty good balance, good roasted malt and a tiny hop action around. Good beer that I would buy again but do not want to hit a sixer of these at once. Nothing amazing here and not bad either. It looks like Funky Cold Medina Keep Austin Weird Chicks designed the label.

As much as I hate being drawn in by the label alone, I was. Unfortunately, quirky labels don’t always mean quality beer. I feel like this one was maybe not Magic Hat’s finest release. Lovely color, a little brown on the nose, lovely aroma, but the taste seems lacking that ’wow’ factor. Darker than anticipated when poured. Little citrus with the hop. The roasted flavors are palatable. Wee bit of caramel in there. Overall, it’s a decent beer, but nothing special. Drinkable but not excitable.

Color is more brown than red, the aroma has some sweet toffee. This is a pretty good amber. Not very heavy, but the right balance of sweetness, caramel and some hops. Overall, I quite like this, especially for the style.
