Pony with brend and streetsie. Pour is dark ruby brown. Sweet and lackluster... Malty and finishes quick. Not good for summer but probably better in winter

hivemind (697) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On tap at Pony with Andy and Streets. Deep red pour with minimal head. Almost non-existant aroma (some sweetness) and sugary, lame palate. Not offensive but not good.

22 oz bomber from Canals Hainesport. Poured a reddish body under a bubbly/foamy off white head. Aroma had some juicy orange notes mixed in with dusty grains and some wet cereal. Flavor of dirty earth and some raw malts. Thin mouthfeel with bubbly carbonation and thankfully a quick fading aftertaste.

Bottle, thanks Dmac. Pours out a nice amberish color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of some very light citrus hops and grain. Taste is sweet, sticky malts, oranges light bitterness and some grains. Not bad.

ddemmingjr (689) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours reddish, amber with a reasonable, fluffy white head. Caramel malts, interesting funkiness attributable to the grapes, pine, floral hops. Sweet malts favors upfront as an interesting spice hits on the finish. Pretty good.

BrewBoxer (1881) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2011 Draft. Pours a deep amber color with nice head and lacing on glass. Smells of fruit and carmel. Taste is fruity witha crisp pilsner bite. Not bad, but im not sure if this is an amber. More like a beefy red ale with a powerful nose and flavors of concord grapes.. Theted carmel am sharp tangy hops. Pretty good
