4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This exudes a "malt forward" style ale. Dark copper red appearance with muted carbonation allowing the flavors of chocolate, black licorice and chicory to move front and center. Nice bittering hop finish. If you like the red ale style, this ought to find a place in your ífrige.

At Savor NYC 2013. The aroma is caramel, nutty, chocolate. Some citrus hops. The flavor is almost identical, decent amount of hops, but mainly malt forward. Medium/thick in body. Pine, citrus on finish. Nicely done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle consumed in a tasting glass. May 21, 2013.
Aroma: Strong amber/dark malt lends a caramel body, ripe red fruits/dried fruit. Citrusy+floral hop notes. Slightly musty.
Appearance: 18ish SRM-Dark red/Amber, tan head with a good moussey appearance. Dark orange/light amber highlights.
Taste: Caramel and toffee dominate the attack which quickly transforms into red fruit and tropical hop flavors. A solid bitter backbone balances the malt. Ends somewhat toasty.
Mouthfeel: Medium to medium-heavy body, medium-low carbonation.
Overall: Good beer. Nose is more impressive than taste but the beer is balanced. Kind of ends up being a situational beer because of itís darker body but higher hop presence.

22oz bottle to shaker. Pours beautiful dark amber color with tan head. Smells floral and piny with nice hint of hops. Nice full body taste with a hint of hops as well. Very crisp, tastes like what you expect from an amber beer but with a twist of signature Ninkasi hops. Finishes nicely with just the right amount of carbonation. Great beer

22 oz. bottle obtained via Lets Pour.com. Didnít know what to expect although Iíd heard good things about Ninkasi products. Very glad I made the purchase. A solid red ale with a medium to slightly heavy body. Malty flavor but definite touches of hop bitterness. Good carbonation and no unpleasant aftertaste. If itís ever sold in New England, Iíll be a customer.

Picked this up by accident, I was trying to grab Ninkasiís I.P.A. Glad I pick it up though! Beautiful dark red pour. Aroma is sweet. Very flavorful, lots of malts and berries with some chocolate and toffee notes. Worth a try for sure!
