COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed and dedicated to the believers of Ninkasi. Rich dark malt complexity is balanced by a plentiful hop presence bringing together perfection in every sip. Who knew believing had so many rewards.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a beautiful red/copper color with a below average head, average lacing and average carbonation. The dominate smell is heavy citrusy floral hops and mild malts. First taste is light, sweet, and a mild crisp hoppy note. Light in body and taste. Not bad - not remarkable either

bhensonb (12044) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2008
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Deep malty aroma with hints of hop. Dark, really garnet color with a frothy beige head. Medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt (typical red) and pine and grapefruit. Light stone fruit esters parade around the middle, and the finish is well balanced. Very tasty.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2008
Pours a deep amber/brown, forming a medium foamy head. Aroma of hoppy malts, a bit of candied fruits, matalic plums. Flavour is of spicy grapefruits, hops, soft pine resin with a full caramel malt character. Somewhat dry in the end, but overall tastey. Wish I could try on tap.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2008
22 oz. bottle, from Liquid Solutions. Pours a deep mahogany red color, somewhat hazy with a small to middlin’ whitish head that leaves spots of lace. Rich aroma of burnt caramel, overripe summer fruits, citrus, evergreen and light spice. Flavor features brash and crisp hoppiness, balanced by roasty, fruity, caramelly malts, spicy grapefruit, hints of pine and white pepper. Medium to full body and subtly agressive carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

JK (4844) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Red in color and quite bitter. Loads of citrus hops with grapefruit. A little sweet malt, and more hops in the flavor. I like this.

badgerben (4564) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Dark red color with no head. Hoppy aroma, focusing on orange. They dry grain from the "red ale" of this beer comes through a lot. A bitter and dried orange finish.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2008
Picked up a 22-oz bomber from Liquidsolutions.biz in Oregon. Pours a clear light brownish amber brew with a thinoff-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light spice, citrusy zest hops, a touch of roasted Bavarian malt and caramel. Taste is slightly hoppy, medium bodied with some carbonation with flavors of roasted caramel malt and plenty of herbs and citrus zest hops. Finish is more hop than malt aftertaste that is quite enjoyable.
