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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Courtesy jayMFg. Pours a very slightly hazy reddish amber body. A minimal, foamy, off-white head leaves behind scant traces of sudsy lacing. Notes of sweet, toasted caramel malts meet some dry grainy scents, as well as a moderate dose of grassy, spicy hops. The flavor is quite toasty, yet equally sweet from the caramel. There is a faint nuttiness that leads directly into the spiced herbal hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and light on carbonation. Finishes short and very dry. This is a strange amber, but not bad overall.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle… O-Town Christmas Gathering ‘07… Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Sweet, malty nose imparts notes of toffee, toasted nuts and spicy hops with restrained acidity. Medium-bodied and watery with mostly flat carbonation. Leans pretty heavily onto the sweet side of balance. Very lightly acidic. Lengthy, sweet, chocolaty and then astringent, dry finish. This one’s all over the place, but enjoyable nonetheless. Much thanks to jayg for sharing!

fly (1459) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2008
DEEP amber. Mightily carbonated. More malty/yeasty and spicy (w/o spices being used) than hoppy. Not knowing what to expect in a "red mo" style, I found it crudely appealing and quite easily quaffable, perhaps all too much so as I drained a bomber quite easily. Thanks again to DocLock

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Courtesy jayMFg. Pours a clear amber red, with mostly no head. Smells of mild spicy hops, some malt, almost a pineyness to it, almost like a subtle mint note. The taste is of nice crisp hops, a very good dose of malts, and a definite sweetness to it. I think the hops and malts dosages seemed about right, and compliment each other well. Pretty tasty brew for a light amber ale. This brewery seems quite solid from my experiences with it so far.

Bottle from trade. Color is dark brown with ruby tint and beige head. Sweet malt aroma with noble spicy hop, slight orange, red to dark fruit. Flavor is red apple, bitter malt, noble hops, sweet, slight caramel, okay. Medium bodied and light carb. Like an english bitter.

From kramer17801, thank you Jason. The beer pours a clear dark reddish amber. It has a small head. Aroma is an airy, earthy, hoppy thing but also a faint aspect of a possible infection with a slight wild characteristic. Taste is a straight up mix of hoppy amber and watered down Irish Red. Starts of with a sweet dark malt biscuit and finishes with some wet, earthy, lightly sweet hops. Mouthfeel is average carbonation and a medium-light body. The bad part is this beer, for some reason, just leaves my palate wanting more. I don’t just seems a bit uninteresting.
22oz bottle, 10th anniversary Ommegang elongated goblet.

Bottle shared by Puddintane courtesy of mj: Pours a clear deep red with a light tan head. Aroma, caramel, bready notes and floral hops. Flavor, citrus, caramel, toffee malts, nice hoppy bite to the finish. This was a pretty nice brew.

22oz bottle. thanks to mj for this. pours a reddish copper with white head. nose has subtle floral hops but the toasted malts are dominant in the nose, some chocolate too. flavor is toasted biscuit, nutty, cookie finish and light bitterness. smooth body. decent stuff, but i like my ambers more hopped up. this seems closer to a brown ale to me.
