COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep red colored ale is full of caramelly sweet malt flavor, yet nicely balanced with a smooth finish.

16 oz can: Aroma had got a nice malty note to it, caramel, a bit of bread, and some really subtle grassy hops on the backend. Appearance is a reddish/ amber with a medium off white head that lingers. Taste is caramel malts upfront, lightly nutty, and some very light hop note in there as well. Palate is light and aqueous with a lightly malty, but somewhat crisp aftertaste. Overall, Good offering but nothing that will blow your socks off. Cheers!

On tap, poured into a shaker. The aromas are a dark blend of caramel and bubblegum with a lightly charred character. It pours a clear, oily red-brown color with a light tan, foamy head that reduces to a medium ring with hefty wisps along the surface and leaving a medium-light lacing on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The medium bodied, oily textured beer has a light buzzy carbonation with flavors of caramel, grain, and spice, as well as a burnt grain / toast character late. Caramel appears most strongly in the finish with notes of spice and light bread appearing in the aftertaste.

a malt leaning Amber ale a little on the boring side, but significantly better than the lager or IPA.

tectactoe (2299) - Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Tap: Amber body with a red-ish tint. Hard to tell exactly, since it was served in a translucent goddamn plastic cup. Foamy white head. Aroma of light caramel & Munich malt sweetness, hints of citrus, figs, & a little bit of piny hoppage. More finishing grain & toasted maltiness. Taste is more malty, more bready, more caramel-y, while still having that fig-like dark fruitiness behind it. Hops take a backseat. Light pine only. Malty finish, sweet toffee & toasted breadiness. Thin, watery body. Somewhat forgettable.

Absolutely splendid red. Story here is malts. Deeply imbued in flavor. Not much if any hops, which I find welcome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Soft and clean pour with one finger of soft tan head. Caramel and toasted notes in the aroma with a nice balanced malt profile. Bready notes with an herbal and earthy hop profile. Malt forward in ze mouth with an earthy quality and dextrinous notes. Medium body and unoffensive finish.

koleminer20 (744) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2014
On tap at Dan’s. The pour is a nice, thin amber with no head, other than a couple of filmy spots and no lace. The aroma ia very malty The sweetness and caramel are awesomely prevalent with a nice touch of yeast. The flavor rivals that of the nose. It’s got a nice sweetness, but the mouth feel is quite thin, watery, and doesn’t allow much of a lingering effect on the aftertaste. Solidly executed, and well-balanced

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Pours amber red with a slight haze. Thick, creamy, off-white head. 1.5 inches slowly dissipating. Sweet, malty nose, with caramel and yeasty notes. Medium light body and decent lingering Well-developed lacing. Toast, nuts, caramel, and pumpernickel bread on the palate. Very low on hops - would have enjoyed greater hop-malt balance. Tasty.

Dark amber color. A nice sweet caramel aroma and flavor. Has a light body feel, but is a pretty solid amber ale.
