COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale is brewed with the finest quality pale, caramel, and lightly roasted malts. This complex combination of malts, contribute to the deep red color and malty flavor. This is balanced with the flavor, bitterness and aromas of three varieties of hops. The IBU’s are around 35. Top fermenting ale yeast is added to create this well rounded beer.

12oz bottle 9/28/13 (Hy-Vee Oakland St.)-Pours amber with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and grains. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew was fairly balanced and was not too shabby.

Boootle. Pours amber! Lots of caramel, malts, biscuity-ness! I’d guess around 35 IBUs, the top fermenting yeast they added creates a well rounded beer.

queenholly (2612) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from a friend in Iowa. Tart fruity caramel malt aroma. Cloudy amber with a ginormous beige head. Toasty caramel malt and grassy herbal bitter flavor. Light body, lively carbonation - a little on the overly carbonated side.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Johns Grocery. Amber pour with a small head. Smells of cherry and mild candied sugar. Taste includes a little vegetable and slight metal tinge late, but not horrible.
