alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle; poured an auburn color. Aroma was very light, with some earthiness and nuts. Flavor was somewhat strange. Watery palate. Hard to get a grasp of.

Can at home. Hazy amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, spices, some nuts, licorice and a bit of cardboard. Flavor is caramel, slightly sweet thick malts and bitter spices. Off balance and a bit boring.

tricksta_p (3326) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2015
Aroma of malt, strong caramel, nuts, toasted bread, hint of dried dark fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light to moderate bittersweet finish. An ’okay’ Red Ale, but I had hoped for a more pronounced US hoppy finish.
