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.

12 oz bottle. 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. One of the better red ales that I have ever had.

Transfer from BA rated 1-14-12 - Had on tap at brew pub. Appearance - Pours a light red color with a nice slighly off white head. Smell - Sweet carmel and malts meet the nose. Rather sweet with a slight bit of roasted notes and hop at the end. Taste - Not as sweet as I would have expected. Was meet with some carmel sweetness (just not as much as would be expected). mainly hit with some roasted and bready malt flavor with a slight amount of bitter hop at the end. Mouthfeel - A decent body with a nice level of carbonation. Nice smooth easy drinking. Overall - A slightly above average beer. In my opinion not the best of Otto’s , but quite good none the less.

The beer pours nicely with a decent dark reddish hue to it, has minimal lacing a thing white/reddish head. The smell is very noticably caramel with some mild earthly malt scent on the back end. The taste is a decent caramel taste up front with a blended malty, mildly bitter taste on the back end, but it gives away to the caramel sweetness eventually. The mouthfeel is somewhat dry, well carbonated beer feeling. Overall, this is a decent red ale from a regional microbrewery. Id expect more from someone who distributes more but this holds its own.

I like my red ale much more hoppy. This beer seems to be all about the malt. Not bad, but just not what I wanted it to be. Nose is a musty and grainy. Crisp mouth feel is nice though.

Pours a dark ruby red. Aroma of cherry, malt and leather. Taste is malty then nutty with an earthy peppery bitterness that cuts through the sweet. Very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange-red with an off-white head. The aroma is full of floral notes with some toffee. The flavor is similar with a lot of floral hop character, as well as some toffee and caramel. Fairly sweet. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber with short lived white head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is of noble hops, caramel malt and cherry. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is very balanced and similar to aroma. Finish is long and spicy. Tasty, nicely balanced red.
