It’s all right, but many microbrews here in Wisconsin are better than this.

Ernest (6220) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2002
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), light notes of peach and diacetyl. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly bitter, lightly acidic, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2002
On tap: The colour is dark amber. Theres not much aroma and flavour in this. Very disappointing. There are some notes of caramel, but the taste is light and veak. Couldn’t finish my glass. Had to have a Guiness.

larsniclas (5611) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2003
Not much of an head, chestnut-coloured. A sour aroma and flavour, watery palate and some strange taste hidden inside.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2003
For a beer that had the word red in its name it's very pale. good dry flavor that is kind of bland in retrospect and fairly weak, watery tasting.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Draft. Only slightly reddish deep amber body; sparse, thin head. Bores my tongue to death; no liveliness to this brew. Mildly noticeable bite. Easily forgettable.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Pint glass on tap. Malt, light fruit taste, more malt and toffee on taste, hops apparent in finish but there is a dirty taste in this one I don’t like. Disappointing, I’ll try this again someplace else and rerate.

bierkoning (10206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2004
Porbably brewed in Den Bosch, this 10 fl. ounce bottle. Urine-like aroma with hints of citrus and raspberry. Some butterscotch, and a nasty ind of nutty bitterness. Rather thin. From tap this beer was quite OK, what has happened to it?

screigh (459) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Poured a smal thin head that didn’t last long. Almost no smell and not even a hint of hops. Color is more brown with a slight red hue. Taste is quite smooth but bland. Aftertase is somewhat sour. I was really expecting more from this brew. Decent beer but not at the cost.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2005
reddish brown in color w/ a smallish white head that breaks up quickly and laces fairly well. A dry weak malt and stale hop aroma hints of cardboard and stale apples. Palate is over carbonated and fairly thin. Flavor is blah.. a hint of generic malt if there is such a thing and a touch of bitterness and some bad grain. Not very good.
