GBBF. Cask. Hazy deep brown beer. Light dry palate. Even malt base, nice hops - fresh pine and a little citrus. Semi dry finish. Nicely hopped drinkable red.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap, Santa Fe. Is a rich, ruddy glassy hue. Too much caramel in the aroma for my likes, because I find that interferes with the really pleasant forest hops. But I quibble. Toasty malt character, and a great balance throughout and a fairly big body with mid to high gravity. Well-structured beer even if it’s not my cup of tea.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Pours copper amber with a retentive light beige head, decent lacing. Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice caramel malt back bone, with a hint of toastiness that is countered by a firm grapefruit and herbal bitterness. Dry and hoppy finish, with some lingering resin and husky grains. Pretty solid beer. Amber? No way. Malty IPA in my book. I need to get more of this

After the boring Amber, my expectations for the Red were pretty low. Well, I was really impressed by this beer. It’s a very strong example, so there is room to pack in some burly flavour. Dark amber-red colour is already a step ahead of the game. Smells good - probably the Simcoe talking. This hop character combines well with the richer crystal malts used. Rich, nuanced, almost smoky, there’s a lot of reasons to give the Red a second look.

Cavie (3977) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Pours a hazy orangish red color with a foamy tan head. Aroma is fairly hoppy with spice, pine and earth. Nice heavy nose. Sappy. Flavor is dry, spicy and lots of hops with a perfumy flavor. Tastes fairly hopped for a red but not bad!

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Ar: Sweet and sticky-smelling caramel, a touch of spicy malt, some bitter citrus. Ap: Deep red-amber, clear, medium tan head with very good retention and very silky-looking texture. T: Spicy toasted malt up front, with grapefruit rind hop flavor and a medium-high bitterness coming in soon after - warm roast and caramel lingers with spicy and hoppy finish. P: Medium bodied with high carbonation - steely and dry on the finish. O: Very full-flavored red ale - complex yet very sessionable - spicy malt character is bold and mingles well with the citrus-rind hop flavor and significant bitterness.

Cask (6.2%)@GBBF2011. Ambery red colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild yeasty and quite pleasantly malty. Flavour is much the same with mild toasted notes. Balanced and nice.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle from a trade. Poured deep amber with an off white head and some lace on the glass. Aroma was caramel, toffee, dark fruit, brown sugar, and citrus. Flavor was pine, caramel, and slight raisin. Body was light with medium carbonation and finished kinda dry. These guys have impressed me with every offering so far.
