On draught at Brew Pub. Amber orange color topped by a small beige head. Light toasted malt aroma with hints of caramel and citrus hops. Sweetish toasted malt flavor with some biscuity, nuttiness. Good balance with the malt and hops. Medium body and flavor, lightlly carbonated.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours amber with no head. Slight hop note on the nose. Slight bitter note on the finish. Itís a bit inert. I wonder if itís supposed to have more carbonation.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Cask at Market Cross in Carlisle. Pours a deep red color with a foamy off white head. Very weak aroma, a touch of malt. Thin, crisp body, nice malt character. Not bad.

on tap-pours a big light tan head that laces and hazy copper color. Aroma is light/medium malt-caramel, fruit. Taste is resin/earthy hops (some EKG?), grainy/light/medium malt-slight caramel. Medium body.

dancatts (91) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2007
On draught, had a dark red appearance with little head. Taste begins malty and smooth and gives way to a slight hop flavor. Not their best beer, but still worth a try.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours copper with nice lacy ivory head. The aroma is very bready, with biscuit, butter, mild flowers. The flavor is densely biscuity with quite a bit of honeyish sweetness. It has a sweet, lingering finish.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 5 oz. sample aroma was minimal. slight bit of barley and hops. It looked an amber color, not really red as the name suggests. Flavor was balance of malt and hops, but lacked any sort of depth. Very carbonated mouthfeel, way too carbonated. an okay brew. Rerate: Just noticed I gave this beer such a poor rating. Iíve had it several times since and actually quite enjoy it. Maltly with some medium caramel notes that arenít overpowering, with nice english hop character mid palate and a finish that is bitter in the way an english bitter is. very much like a bitter accept with clean american ale yeast. nice session beer, that I could drink often.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2006
cask @ brewery. Poured a slightly hazy red/orange color with a small, sticky off-white head. Somewhat earthy hop nose with a little grapefruit. Flavors were malty with some sugars and a good bit of grapefruit, fresh cut grass, and mild funk in the finish. The cask version was a bit better than the regular tap.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2006
On tap, Taming of the Brew 2006. Poured a hazy copper with a small white head that faded quickly. Aroma is of light grainy malt with minimal hoppy notes and a little butter. Flavor is very buttery with grainy malt, some alcohol, and a little bit of toasted malt. Body was thin with moderate carbonation. Iím wondering whatís wrong with these guys. Three of the four beers that I had from them at this beerfest were all buttery tasting. I can understand maybe an off batch of one beer, but not three different beers.
