(12 oz bottle: Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) Okay, so this isnít the best red ale Iíve ever tasted, but itís still quite good. A fairly caramely and sweet malt flavor is balanced by floral, moderately bitter, lightly citrusy hoppiness. The nose isnít all that aromatic, but itís dominated by the caramely malt, plus the floral hops has moderate presence. Standard medium body, but thereís a nice creaminess and slightly oily mouthfeel for a smooth and soft palate. Medium amber and slightly hazy in appearance, the beer is covered, at least initially by an off-white and finely bubbled head. The head fades to a wide ring surrounding a few wisps in the center. Lacing is sporadic, but at least present on the glass. Not as good as the Dark (Amber) Ale, but itís definitely more than just a generic and boring American red ale.

This beer pours a clear reddish amber color with a thin white head and a small degree of lacing. The aroma smells like your average red with hints of grains, malt, nuts and vegetables. Flavor-wise this was extremely bland...cottonmouth dry finish...hints of citrus and very weak malts. Dry grassy mid-sip, slightly acetic. Mild carbonation with a small amount of prickliness. Seriously...what the hell was this beer all about? Very little flavor, bitter and dry. I was not very impressed....leave it on the shelf.

IndianaRed (3743) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle Pours a hazy red-amber with a small dish water head. Lacing was actually very persistant and dense. Light malts in the aroma with a bit of a hop bite. Decent feel and a mild flavor overall. A session bero I supose and nice but not special.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle: Deep amber, large off-white frothy head, attractive lacing, soft carbonation.   Pale malt aroma, slightly floral, but also a dash of butter.   Somewhat dirty malt profiler, a bit biscuity.   Moderate body, medium mouthfeel that is nearing the thin side.   Clean finish, but the flavor falls off quickly.   Tiz okay, somewhat light tho.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Eh, itís not bad, but nothing great at all... Pours a redish-orange with a decent head and some nice lace. Aroma is sweet with a bit of citrus. Flavor is typical Amber except it has a bit of a metalic aftertaste. Nice malt profile, though, and well balanced. Palate goes over the "mineral" to the "slightly metalic," yet creamy. Overall, itís not bad but there are many better.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Are you kidding me? This beer is fabulous! Nice sour malt aroma. Red amber in color with quick head. Filtered. The flavor is fantastic - and all over the place - sweet cherries, wheat and nuts, balanced with PacNW hops. Easy drinking with a nice crisp apple finish. Great brew! props to Andreí!

Tap@The Jolly Roger. These red/amber ales all taste the same after a while. A bit nutty, abit hoppy, definietly not over the top, pretty easy to drink. Fairly thin, not very intersting.
