This has surpassed all other Amber/Red beers in terms of smoothness and maltyness for me. The description on the label is 100% accurate. With a solid 6 ABV you wouldn’t even realize, I would share this beer on cold fall or winter nights with someone who may not have yet discovered an appreciation for malty goodness.

I don’t know why, I just really don’t like this beer. I’ve had it from a bottle, but this last Saturday my dad got a Nitro pour of it at the brewery. Wow, that made it much worse. The name seemed fitting as all I could taste was rust. He actually liked it. Me, I enjoy most everything from O’so, but this one beer.

Pours a cloudy amber with little head. Kind of a stale bread aroma. Metallic, pruny taste. Crisp finish, slight lingering aftertaste. All said, a good campfire sipping beer. Not going to blow you away, but not going to let you down either.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish red with an off white head. Flavors are bread, malt with a hint of mild fruitiness. Medium body and carbonation. All makes for a pleasing get home from work type beer. Plenty of flavor but doesn't overwhelm. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Deeply hazy orange amber, tightly packed white head. Low aroma of fruity caramel, light butterscotch. Mild flavours of fruity caramel, low bitterness. Just ok.

tmoreau (2425) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at the Cornerstone Tap in Bailey’s Harbor, WI.. Displayed a clear, brownish amber color, with decent persistence to the off white/light tan head foam, and fair waves & spots of lacing. The nose was light grain with a touch of dankness, some toastiness, caramel sweetness, and slight esters as apricot. Moderately lingering hop bitterness, with fair malt content, a little less than medium body, and okay carbonation. Paired well with the Packer win and the Sunday nite, fried chicken special.

Scipio (701) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pours a very deep amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is mostly bread with some minor impressions of caramel, nuts, and perhaps some very light fruitiness. The taste is heavy in caramel and bread. These flavors are complimented by cherry notes and nuts. There is slight buttery touch in here as well. Aftertaste consists of cherry and bread. Medium bodied, a texture that is clean yet a little thicker, with below average carbonation. This one is ok I suppose, but it isn’t anything worth remembering.

Awful. Clear dark gold pour. Flavor is bitter and rotten fruit. Nasty ass.

drowland (6038) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Light aroma, some biscuit, cracker, bread, and caramel. Light malty flavor, caramel, a hint of nuttiness. Not bad.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2013
12oz bottle from Siebel. Pours a clear, red-orange colored body with a thin, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is cooked corn, toasty toffee, fruity esters, bread, and a hint of earth. Flavor is better. Somewhat toasty toffees with a light caramel sweetness, bread, a light earth, and a few fruity notes. Finishes clean and somewhat dry with a bit of a buttery sweetness, a light bitterness, and some toasty toffees. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, this wasn’t terrible, but it had some obvious flaws. Eh.
