fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Amber with a rocky head. Very yeasty with a sweet taste to it. When the word ’engineered’ is used by the brewer to describe his beer, it can’t be good.

Headbanger (3359) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a lighter amber with a decent head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same with a little hops thrown in. This light to medium bodied brew is not too good.

ROGUE (2120) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours with a crisp clear deep amber body topped by a medium thick head with good lace. Slightly sweet and lemony hop aroma with a touch of maltiness. Not what I was expecting from the nose. Sweet and malty flavor with a good hop balance and a touch of fruitiness. Slightly bitter finish. Relatively smooth, medium bodied.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2005
Very sweet, caramel malt aroma with some fruity esters and citrus hops apparent. Clear amber-tan coloured body is topped by a fizzy, fine bubbled, off white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Caramel sweetness in the flavour is tempered by fair bitterness and herbal/citrus hop flavours. Medium light body with moderate carbonation but a somewhat watery texture. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle (Westfield General Store, VT, Dec-05).

(Transcribing some long-lost notes from ca. late ’02.)



One of those easy-drinkin’ brews that beer lovers should like. Not great but not a watery-ricey-corny macro. Red color as advertised (orange-amber, actually), pretty good head. Quite tasty-looking actually. Not especially distinctive in taste, and unintrusive palate. Pretty solid but not a must, unless you’re a RateBeer(TM) Geek who just has to try everything.

csbosox (1223) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Tasted at Jan. KC Brew Meisters meeting. Reddish orange, off white head. Nose is floral, citrusy, malty. Flavor is malt base then sour. Nice finish, some hoppiness.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Very forgettable, not much red or anything else, somewhat bitter in the finish.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 11, 2004
I disagree with the commercial description ... this IS an ordinary ale. Reddish amber in color, the taste is pleasantly malty but not really distinctive. I was expecting more body from this one, I guess. Good, but not exceptional.
