COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our best selling beer, hand’s down! A high gravity red ale that is extremely drinkable due to the sweet finish leaving the pallet wanting more. Dry-hopped for a floral characteristic delivering an extra kick for the hop-heads.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Rated on 02-22-2013 at Pinglehead Brewery for RBWG. This draft beer’s appearance is a small beige head with a long retention, fast rising carbonation and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is pine hops, malt and semi-sweet. The flavor is pine hops, lightly bitter, caramel malt, and a little sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and not too hoppy tasting. This is a beer that I would drink again.

Actually more balanced than I was thinking it was going to be. A bit of burn but good balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Medium copper colored pour, medium thick off-white head. Diactyl-like butterscotch in the aroma with hints of vanilla. .Favor has some more of that butterscotch with some hints of caramel and vanilla. Tastes better than it smelled and improves as it warms. Thick enough mouthfeel.

Aurelius (4381) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Aroma is punch-you-in-the-mouth diacetyl, sweet with light vinegar. Clear, light cherrywood color, thin head. Bad tap. Buttery, sweetish, tannic, a little perfumy. Taste was much better than the aroma. Medium, silky body, stiff bittering in the finish. On tap, Proof, with PorterPounder.

Clarkdvm (177) - Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Draft at beer tasting room. Plain. Makes me think of a yuengling but with a more bitter first sip yet sweeter with each taste.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Draft... RBWG 2013... Clear amber pour with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that hangs on throughout. The aroma offers loads of honey, flanked by traces of caramel. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet – caramel and honey malts are steadied by floral and citrusy hops. Finishes bittersweet - more bitter than sweet.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Draft at Crispy’s. Deep red body with little head. Dominated by maltiness with very little alcohol present. Not bad.

S_Side_Smitty (489) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours red-amber with a thick white head. Aroma is sour and a little "barnyardy". Very earthy aroma. Tast is sweet light malts. Doesn’t have much body. There’s some hoppy bitterness in the finish, but not much else going on. Mid palate is missing.
