2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Wow...that was incredibly dull!!! The aroma is very nonexistant...i got something malty and a hint of hoppy, but i mean there was not much there...it smelled like cold malt to be honest. It poured a clear but carbonated copper/brown with a thin not long lasting foamy head. The taste is really subdued with malts and some apples being apparent. I just dont see the appeal of this beer...i find the carbonation level to be a wee bit in excess, and the taste is seriously lacking on something that might make me want to drink this again. It wasnt terrible...but where in the hell is there one distinguishable factor that makes this beer aside from a thin malty palate???

tap. nothing too memorable, but it was good. (I should really start taking notes) interesting and solid flavor with decent body; worth a try.

This beer pours red/amber and it has a small head that fades fast. The taste was generally unimpressive, but still very unique.

Pretty much a run of the mill ale. Nothing to spectactular about it, but it's not bad either.

Dark amber with a fluffy head that stood up well. Soft malts; mild carbonation. Mouthfeel was decent with a nice and creamy texture. Metallic off-flavor was kind of bothersome. Sweet up front with a hint of fruit, chocolatey in the middle, and slightly bitter in the finish.

Light bubbles, but decent lace down the line. Pleasantly hopped aroma that soon became mildly astringent, unfortunately. Malty and rich flavor, low carbonation. Nice hoppy finish, but slightly medicinal aftertaste. Perhaps this was not a perfect bottle.

It dissappointed me at first. But being drinking it i started liking it some more. It is a taste you start tasting more and more..
Difficult to get an impression.

Far from red in appearance, more of a light amber/orangeish. A thin white head, fairly dense. Definitely light damaged, fairly skunky. Hints of alcohol, a light malt character and a bit of an earthy tone. Cleaned up well, crisp, some caramel. sweet with a little hop balance, creamy and smooth finish of dried barley.

I had it on draft. I was suprised to find it on the thin side. It had a nice deep amber color, a decent head, and a nice maltiness. A decent beer.

Had on tap at Danny K's on March 25th, 2003
Pours an amber color with a small head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is quite weak with a hit of hops, but nothing special. The taste on the other hand is strong - a bit too strong perhaps. I've had many reds that are better than this one. The taste is a bit too alcoholic despite only being 5% ABV with an aftertaste that doesn't help the cause...
