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.

Salmoniform (476) - 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.

Out of the variety pack that Ninkasi offers. Rich malty taste with a hoppy finish. Not my favorite red ale.

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 (1439) - 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 (2016) - 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.

DedicatedToFun (2314) - Santa Monica, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Intense double red ale on tap at Commons Bar in Santa Monica, super strong red ale. Amber pour, white head, nose is caramel, taste is caramel, toffee, decent.

GT2 (8276) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Tap at Commons Santa Monica. Thanks Dedicatedtofun! Clear red pour, brown foam. Spotty lacing. Dusty, plastic aroma. Taste is bitter, tea tannic, sugary, dusty. Not my style.

joeneugs (3119) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Costco. It pours a handsome dark red color with a lasting orange head. The aroma is not too strong, but nicely hoppy with pine and a little citrus. Some robust dry maltiness. The flavor is well balanced with a touch of malt sweetness up front followed by a strong earthy, piney hop finish. Little caramel, red currants, dark bread… tasty stuff.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a copper colored beer, clear, and with a thick, off-white head. It’s mostly hoppy on the nose, citrus and pine cones, with a solid shot of caramel. The flavor is nicely bitter, not too sweet, with the same food ratings found in the aroma. Full body, semi-dry, ands with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. A really fine brew. 130805
