Not your typical Amber Ale. Bold flavored Red Ale with pronounced roasted character and caramel notes, balanced with loads of Cascade and Amarillo hops. Medium bodied, deep copper in color and dry hopped for additional hop character this beer is full of flavor.

An aroma of unlit tobacco, some leather and some sweet caramel. Appears like apple cider, reddish-brown, hazy. Tastes slightly sweet up front of caramel and tobacco, followed by a balanced marijuana like hop bitterness. Palate is ordinary. Overall, I am very impressed!

Tap at brewery. Opaque brownish red. Almost looks like a cider. Weed nose. Tastes a bit hop bitter for an amber.

Had a glass as part of a sampler at the brewery. A very nice amber, much more of a hop presence than normal, but still balanced.

This is a thing. Iím not sure how to describe this. It tastes like a red ale that escaped and got into the malt patch.... Itís less of an amber than I was expecting. Itís a full bodied red ale with about 65 times the malts of your average red ale. It Pours a murky chocolate-milk-brownish red with a dark beige head. No real nose. Flavor is malty first with some hoppy twang lying on top and a red ale backbone. Itís a peculiar ale... I donít love it, but I donít hate it at all...

This is an interesting one. Itís a porter masquerading as an amber ale. It is very dark red and thick looking. It had a very nice thick brownish head. It smells very sweet and tastes... Interesting. Itís like 30% amber ale 80% porter. It tastes chocolately which is weird for an amber ale. Not sure Iíll get this one again.

On tap at the bar at Braun court. Strange. Subtle aroma of bread and beans. Dark amber/red. Taste is sort of porter-ish, but milder ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

umich03jm (2043) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Brewpub sample. Pours a slightly cloudy medium amber color. Very hoppy aroma. Red fruit, pine, citrus, and caramel malt too. Hops dominate the taste at first but the malt comes through in the end. Really good even though the hops slightly overpower it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sample. Deep amber color, clear, thin head. Hop and caramel malt aroma. Very strong flavors but overall the beerís taste is a little harsh.

Served on draft at the Michigan Summer Beerfest, 2010, as part of RBSG festivities. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Malty and fruity aroma with nutty notes as well as toffee and apple. The taste is caramel, stone fruits, faint nuts and hops. Bitter finish. Medium bodied.
