OldMrCrow (2404) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Draft at the taproom in Santa Fe.

Deep orange-brown pour with a modest head. Nose brings some of the metallics that previous raters were glad not to detect, along with spicy pine. The flavor is a very fine balance of c-hop drive with sweetish caramel malt backing. Prickly mouthfeel from the abundant carbonation. This (hoppy American red ale) is not a style that I tend to enjoy, but I rather enjoyed this one. It has to be once of the nicest red ales Iíve had.

Pours deep red caramel with a creamy head. Big fresh hop aromas of pine, grass, peach, caramel and apricot. Big upfront apricot taste with light peach, pine and a balence of caramel. Medium sweet and bitter. Very good beer with a good hop punch.

>> Chill hazed, deep red tea pour with yellowish foam. Okay retention. Nose is pine, tea, dark bread. Taste is almost all tea leaf, amber tea, bitter unsweetened tea. Tannic, bitter, tea finish. Eh.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2014
12oz bottle c/o Elise. Red-brown unfiltered body. Foamy off-white head. Rich, sweet, thick sugary aroma. Unapologetic amber malt, cherry tinged sweetness. The hops arenít as prevalent as I would hope. Woody cherry amber and specialty malts are too much for me. Lacks any bite, balance. Not bad, but not so great either.

CowboyJoe (5) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2014 does not count
Pours with a thin white head, clear amber color. Hop forward in the nose both simcoe and cascade hop. Simcoe gives it a slight cat pee smell. Taste also hop forward with a lingering bitterness. Overall too hop forward in my opinion for a red ale. Hops overpower the malt and caramel flavors usually associated with an amber.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the Sante Fť location. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grass with a bit of pine backing but mainly sweet grains. Flavor has more grass with a touch of pine and bit of bread backing.

Pint on tap at Dickís. This is one of the reddest beers I have seen. Itís also one of best Iíve smelled or tasted. Itís clean and well balanced with no metallic hints at all, which I find to be common in this style. Assertive PNW hops are in the aroma with hefty, but not overwhelming malts. The flavor is a clean, tasty balance of biscuits, toffee and citrus. Palate is on the heavier end of the style, but not noticeably thick. The finish is clean with some lasting citrus bite. This is a winner of a red ale.
