Nice amber color with a mostly diminishing off white head. Aroma is malty with a little spiciness. Flavor has some nice malty roastiness with hint of smoke. This is about as good as ambers get.

pours a nice amber color with a relatively thin white head that is quite bubbly and dissipates quickly, malty sweet aroma with a hint of fruit, nice medium body with a strong malty flavor and undertones of fruit with a dry finish with a perfect amount of hoppiness...i really like this amber ale especially on a cold and snowy night here in wisconsin

I really liked this one. It had a very smooth taste that was unique. It was my first Red Ale and I was impressed. Nice aroma.

Clear coppery color, nice diminishing head and lacing. Malty caramel aroma. The flavour has a good dose of malt and fruity hopps. Aftertaste is dry and earthy. Another nice job by the people at New Glarus.

Brilliant amber-red color, coarse head dissipates quickly. Very malty and a little sweet without being cloying. Fruity aromas and flavors. Very light hallertauer character, most noticable in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 The beer looks nice and it smells nice. There's a good Irish upfront with some sweet malty caramel taste to slide down and into your tummy. Has a nice little spice in the finish. It's a cozy beer. i need to re-rate.

A nice reddish hue and tan head, which goes quickly. Carmel, hazelnut, and coffee tones in the aroma. Sweet malt taste with just a little hoppiness. Warm and full mouthfeel and sweetbread aftertaste. A good ale compared to the rest of the genre.

Huh - the do still make good earthy stuff at NG - I was getting worried after the last two blasts of heavy sweetness. This one is weet, too, but in a more restrained way - a plesant toothsome edge quilted in with the spicy hops and decent malt backbone. Nice stuff.

Sweet smell with a copperish undertone. Taste was decent as I took my first taste. Found the glass being empty quick with this one. One of the deepest red ales I've seen.

A nice red ale that reminded me of homebrew. The price is right. Cheers to the brewery for effort though.
