COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From a true "city of neighborhoods" we offer our take on a "biere de mars, " or a ruddy farmhouse ale. In true Philadelphia fashion, European and American ingredients are melded into a complex, ruby ale with flavors of toasted malt and rye. It's the perfect accompaniment for some quality time enjoyed in the backyard (or on the front stoop) of your urban farmhouse.

Notsure but this beer had a huge head, yeasty with a hint of Belgian. some malt and hops but thin , fizzy, with some lacing. Beer was not bad once you got through the head,

12 oz. bottle in a shaker. Hazy amber pour with short head. Not sure about this one. Bought a six pack in Cape May, NJ. I have had 2 so far. It’s got a nice hoppy bite to it with a somewhat malty finish. Nothing great, but definitely drinkable. The local choices are not great, but always glad to see something new.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 17, 2011
Red with little head. Lightly toasted malts, sweet caramel, light yeast spice in the aroma. Medium to light body. a sweet toasted malt flavor with light fruity hops, and a small yeast tone. Finishes with a mild dryness that is quite pleasant. Enjoyable.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Well, its red, as one might expect. Foamy white head. Smells like toast and brown sugar, tastes like toast and other malty, sweet flavors. There is an odd note in there - rye? maybe? no? anyone? Woody note as it warms. Simple and tasty.

BillKismet (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Rich amber body with a lush tan-orange head. Surprisingly aromatic. From first nostrilful, it is evident this is not an ordinary Irish Red--indeed the roots seem more accurately as Belgian. Saison complexity with peppery yeast, nutmeg, crisp trails of rye upon layers of toasty malt. The flavor is a bit harsher than the aroma as it is strongly flavored with rye and sharp toastiness. Malty with a big tannic grain and burnt toast finish.

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2011
[on tap] Spicy clove with sweet banana and some oxidized, candy and nut character. Clear chestnut appearance with a thin, off-white cover. Sweet and spicy flavour of dry malt that seems to be from an infection. Medium bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation, bitter dry finish.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 12/10/10

Aroma: The nose is kind of vinous, grape, a little yeast, moss/earth, minerals, and a touch of spice
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy brownish-amber color with a small beige head
Flavor: Much like the nose, but with more sourness to the grapes, plus funky yeast and earthy hops
Palate: It feels somewhat thin, is medium bodied, slightly creamy, and has a fairly long duration
Overall Impression: Well this was not what I was expecting at all. I figured this would probably be one of those caramel malt from Amber ales, but it certainly wasn’t. I guess I should have read the bottle! Well, this was a nice surprise actually. This was much more interesting. It turned out to be a fairly solid beer.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Split with Vinny. Pours a beautiful autumn amber with with a soft, thin, delicately laced head. Aroma of freshly baked marbled rye bread, seasame, wheat, roasted malts, and a very slight hint of farmhouse funk. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky, yet loose and juicy mouthfeel. Finishes with a crisp, almost vinous dryness that accompanies some soft fruity notes. This is a truly excellent beer, brewed right here in the best city in the world; Philadelphia.
