I loved the aroma on this beer! When the glass is full, the smell is a faint whiff of hops, but as you drink the glass down, that wonderful aroma gets stronger and stronger!!! I enjoyed it immensely!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on October 26, 2013. Dark amber color, surprisingly firm bittersweet nose with strong malty backbone, interesting bittersweet flavor that’s like a cross between a bitter and an amber ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BevMo, Phoenix. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a hint of hops. Pours caramel-amber colored with a thin, white head and no lacing. Sweet and malty to start with a lot of caramel. Finishes dry and fairly smooth with only a slight hoppy bite that lingers on the palate. Nice and refreshing take on a red.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
An reddish-amber body with a white head that had nice retention, but no lace. Aroma had a moderate caramel malt presence initially, there was a mild corn note. Mild hop profile. Flavor was sweet from the caramel malts, but there was an off flavor to it. Seemed to have a mild bitterness to it, which added to the off flavor or at least emphasize it. Finish was smooth.
