3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Oliver House part of Maumee Bay on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear copper rouge with a medium sized beige head, a little scummy looking. Really nice toast note, a little cherry. A bit sweet, and a metallic almost plasticy note. Slow toast and bitterness on the finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Comes out with the expected red tinge and caramel notes in aroma in flavor. This beer boils down to a middle of the road stock recipe, not bad, not really that good either. (#3798, 1/22/2010)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a unnoted head size of foamy finely sized mostly diminishing off-white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and light brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of malty mild . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering slightly tingly bubbly palate. Its flavor contained mild malty mild caramel mild red notes. A below average brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small sample at the brewpub. Sweet, tangy, simple malty nose...dark amber/red...watery, overcarbonated body with woody and diacetyl-dominated flavor profile...seems off.

Spicy malt some fruity earthy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid red ale. These Maumee Bay beers have been way better from the taps than what Iíve tried from bottles...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft - Dark amber color, almost no head, some lacing. The malty aroma is very light. The body is kind of thin and too bubbly. This mouthfeel seemed to be a common problem as I worked my way down the brewery sampler board. The beer description said "well hopped", which is in my opinion wrong. The hops are actually pretty light. Itís an okay beer but could be a lot better.
