Rated based on notes taken 22 Feb 2012 -- This tasted very much like a California Common, but as a red. I liked it.

Bottle from a 6-pack purchased at Wal-Mart and drank in our hotel room in Cincy. Amber appearance, bit of white head. Grass, sugar, caramel aroma. Nicely balanced. Nothing fantastic, but nothing to complain about.

Pretty solid beer. Not really special but still a very drinkable beer. A little bit of a lingering after taste.

Bottle. Bready caramel malt and fruity hops aroma. Clear copper with a large off-white head. Follows the nose -- bready caramel malt and slightly spicy fruity hops flavor. Medium creamy body, moderate carbonation. Really quite nice.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice, clear deep amber with a small off white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Wonderful malty aroma of caramel, cereal, toasted peanuts and hazelnuts, and biscuits. Taste is also malt heavy with caramel, biscuits and wheat up front with peanuts and a bit of spices coming in behind that. Balanced out with a pretty strong earthy hop presence. Long toasty malt finish with a bit of hop bitterness. A bit too heavy on the malt in my opinion. Makes it a little hard to drink. Pretty much overwhelms your taste buds. Not a bad taste, mind you. Just an overabundance of it. Pretty full bodied with slick texture and moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty satisfying beer. Nice balance between hops and malts.

12 ounce bottle poured an amberish color with aromas of caramel, fresh hops, and some malt. Flavors follow suit, a hopper version of the amber they produce maybe? Solid beer, no real flaws, just bland.

Beer of month club. Pours a clear gold - kinda looks like apple juice. Nose of sweet malts. Taste of caramel, malt, bread - good combination of sweetness and slight bitterness. Good beer.
