Fatehunter (2121) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2013
It was pouring okay, then it just foamed up really quickly. The color is a amber to red. The aroma is crushed grain and a mild caramel. The taste has a watery start, mild bitterness in the middle, finishes with a mild sweetness. Unoffensive. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Nothing special, but an easy drinker.

Een kastanjebruin bier. In het aroma en het smaakpalet zit wat karamel. Ook graan en hop zijn duidelijk aanwezig. Dit is een droog bier dat, door de neutrale smaak, prettig drinkt.

Cokemonkey11 (420) - - JUN 11, 2016
Brown bottle, 330ml. Pours medium amber with a thin tan head subsiding quickly. Scent is light red ale but actually maybe just lager and flowers. Resin. Ethanol. Taste is medium dense red ale with flowers, grass, resin, and maybe almonds. Finish is clean and unassuming. Good.

A little malt aroma. Clear amber to brown color, small and short head. Taste is a little roasted bitterness, balanced with hints of sweetness.

szeli (243) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2016
Schmeckt nach kaum etwas. Leichtes süßes Malz, Hopfen nahezu gar nicht vorhanden. Bittere gleich null. Einmal trinken reicht

SkillsFactory (503) - ITALY - MAR 17, 2016
Rossa limpida con riflessi dorati, schiuma beige, spillata al carboazoto, quindi di persistenza infinita. Aroma di malti tostati ed erbaceo. Al palato crosta di pane, malti tostati ed erbaceo finale. Corpo medio, non molto carbonata, beverina.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 16, 2016
Óriási, tartós piszkosfehér habja van, és gyönyörű réz színe. Illata nem intenzív, fűszeres és kissé karamellás. Íze selymes, erősen fűszeres, kissé karamelles és kesernyés. Viszont nem igazán telt, de nem is vizes. Hosszú utóízében a fűszeresség dominál némi keserűséggel.

Balabuska (9) - SPAIN - MAR 15, 2016 does not count
Refreshing bitterness and harsh malt sweetness melt into this prototype of irish red beers. The colour is caused by the special malt mixture that also gives this quite unique taste. Some might think this beer is a bit old-fashioned but, name it ’New Craft Copper Lager’ and it’ll please a lot of people. The carbonation is relatively strong which enhances the refreshing character, the body is light to medium. And the finish is nicely dry hoppy. A classic brewing style and a refreshing but characterful lager.

beer_rookie (329) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Pours a light red, perhaps auburn color. Two fingers tan head. Low retention, low lacing.

Aroma not strong, but dominately light roasted malts, maybe some cocoa.

Taste is malty and sweet. I little cocoa, a little toffee. Also a little pepper.

Mouthfeel is light, to medium light. Very easy drinking. Creamy and well carbonated. Its only a tad better or maybe spicy, on the finish

Overall, this is better than people are saying. It’s not great, but okay. It’s enjoyable. If you’re looking to dissect a beer, this isn’t it. I’d drink this again.
