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.

Pours a vibrant, clear, copper-brown with a tan, sudsy head. Toffee, grassy nose. Smooth, wet mouthfeel. Toasty toffe, sweet fruity flavors with some grassy bitterness. Everything is well-blended.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Very strong and good malting. The hops went through a range of citrus to fruitiness as it warmed. Very lacy and large mocha coloured head. A nice take on the style, thanks Len.

BobbyAnalog (327) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Earthy, pulpy, tilled with dark chocolate notes. This red ale has sharpened horns. One of the better Ninkasi offerings, propelled by a fiery complexity.

On tap at Whole Foods Whole Lotta Brews Brewfest, malty but not sweet. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (648) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Pours CRYSTAL-CLEAR red with a nice white head. Aroma is some maltiness (caramel, breadlike) with a strong shot of hops. Initial taste is sweet maltiness trying to come through with a hop bitterness following to balance it all out. Light bodied with good carbonation. This is definitely a hop-forward red ale.

Frahmo (292) - Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Out of the variety pack that Ninkasi offers. Rich malty taste with a hoppy finish. Not my favorite red ale.

Beergeek23322 (2262) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
2/23/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, dried fruit, hops. Earthy notes with caramel. Not bad.

haddon90 (1466) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color with a decent laced head. Malty aroma with a strong sense of hops. Slightly watered down but some hops in there. Aside from that there is not much there. Was expecting more.

Storm_Shadow (107) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber with small off white head. Malty, caramel, ok but not as good as I hoped. Bit boring.

stevoj (2154) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Dark amber with thick, foamy head. Sourish hoppy nose. Taste has a metallic tinge with dry finish. Good, but not best.
