COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American red ale. Very malty and crisp. It has all the fun without the AMD (Acid Mine Damage)! Brewed with Palisade for the bittering and late hopped with Liberty.

Blairgus (2687) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
12 July 2011, bottle. med red amber colour, clear, steady bubbles, foamy tan head. surprisingly a lot of sweet raisin and alcohol on the nose for a 5% beer. med/full body and slightly fizzy. nutty red ale, dry grassy hop bitterness, and some faint bitter raisin flavours. nice enough.

DiarmaidBHK (3521) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2011
has a bit of maltiness on the nose. Pours an amberish brown with a light head. The taste is somewhat malty but doesn’t linger.

medium red with medium white head. nose of low crystal malt and some floral hops. high carbonation for the style. medium to firm bitterness before low crystal malt presence before some floral hops with a touch of english malt character. low residual sweetness making the beer very drinkable. overall this is an irish red ale, no real similarities to a west coast amber, but it’s a nice version

deyholla (6861) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle thanks to Brian, thanks! Pours a clear amber red with a thin white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet grains, cereal and a bit of grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet grains, cereal and hay with a bit of pine and grassy hops in the finish.

jar72404 (426) - USA - DEC 5, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Red with thin head. Not much aroma. Flavor is some caramel maltiness with light hoppiness. Nice, but unspectacular, easy drinking amber ale.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Ruddy amber pour. The nose is softly malt with a kiss of light fruity sweetness. A touch of light caramel and a nice fruitiness. Amber malts with a little bit of crystal that kind of accentuates the fruity hoppiness. Mostly cascades in here, but why mess with a good thing?

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Tap @ Otto’s - orange/red pour with a thin white head. Nutty, toffee malts, raisins. Mouth feel is silky smooth and soft. Has a nice bitter component with some flavors sitting on the tongue. Touch of citrus, melon and a dry finish. good balance.

On tap at Otto’s on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear copper and light brown with a medium sized beige head. Toast and nutty malt, light grain. Light sweetness and caramel. Medium bodied and smooth, gentle carbonation.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2010
22oz Bottle: Clear amber color topped by a thin off white head. Aroma is primarily caramel and toasted malts. Well balanced. Initial caramel malty flavored is followed up by a light floral hop biterness. Hints of nuts and a crisp mineral-like quality in the finish. Not a world beater by any means, but an easy to drink sessionable amber.
