Wow..I canít believe how low the ratings are for this GREAT RED ALE! Nice red ale flavor with a smooth finish. i donít know how far out this ale goes for distribution, but it is brewed in a small city on Indiana. If you have the opportunity to pcik this beer up, do so. You will thank me!!

Wow. Aroma is caramel, Light hops, drk red in color. Taste is Carmel, semi sweet, high malt, moderate hops that give the beer a bite at the back end. Very well balanced. The beer had a nice froth head from start to finish, lots of lace. May be the best red I have had! Highly recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle courtesy of stfun. Pours red with a white head. Smells of citrus, caramel, roses, some earthy hints. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus, some pepper, sugary. Some residual bitterness accompanies a nice dry finish.

Tursday night growler. Pours a brownish amber with 2 finger light tan head that left good lacing. Aromas of sweet malt, some apple, a little caramel. Flavor not as sweet as nose would indicate nice roasted flavor right off the bat before the caramel like sweetness sets in and then the light bitterness balancing in the end. Light to med body, mild carb, watery syrup texture, and an almost dry feel. I haven’t had this beer in years and only got the growler for rating puposes, but damn it is so much better than I remember from 10 years ago. I’ll most certainly be enjoying pints of this on a more regular basis.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a Sam Adams BL glass, the beer pours a red/amber color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. It smells mostly like caramel malt, along with some pine hops and a nutty aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like caramel malt, piney hops and a bit of a fruity taste. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, itís easy to drink and enjoyable. It wouldnít be hard to drink a few of these at a time. I think this is a good overall brew, Iíd pick it up again in the future. Itís definitely worth a try if you come across it.

This is a nice, mild amber. It has good taste but not the typical overpowering kick of some ambers. You could drink quite a few of these & still be in good shape.

Dark amber color with a small head. Clean, fresh, sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt, yeast taste up front with some bitterness at end. IMO an above average amber, for whatever that is worth.
