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.

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.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2007
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.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2007
22 oz bottle, from the brewery. Pours a clear ruby red under a small covering of beige head. The nose is husky grainy toasted malt with a moderate floral hop nose. The flavor is mostly husky heavily toasted malt with a very lightly bitter finish. A little thin maybe. Mouthfeel is a little on the thinner side with a somewhat watery texture and soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but drinkable.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 2, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is a piquant, rich sweet grain, light honey, browned toasted and almond liqueur. Gentle, nuanced and suave. Pours a deep mahogany amber, ruddied in florid delight. Rim of clay-colored head. Flavor is a rich, delicate malt, dappled with toothy grains, fresh bread, savory herbs and a full bouquet of ranging tree boughs. Hops seem to back up and look inwardly at this beer, great balance especially considering the really dry, beautifully attenuated finish with delectable freshness and tingling mineral qualities. Yeast settles into the beer and gives an undertone of elegance. All around nice. One of those expertly crafted recipes, brewed to perfection and exhibiting all its glory in a style that’s so unoriginal that good work really stands out.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours rusty red with quick ivory head. The aroma is caramel with some fruit blossom notes, little bits of toast and some distant cedar. The flavor has a little bit of toast, some caramel, and a prickly hop presence. the finish is slightly woody and carbonic. Decent.

Pours a clear amber with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of faint citrus and malts. Taste is faint citrusy with hints of malt. Not bad.
