well its that time of the year where the dog goes outside and drinks the rain water out of an upside down garbage lid, but its not the time where your beer smells like your wet dog, quality control is an issue with this beer, the scent is of wet musty shih tzu and has a souring tartness that no american red (amber ale?) should have, i choked it down and im not any better for it...

Smells a little sweet like candy. A darker beer. Oh my, pretty strong impressions like many rochy brews. Wew, fer sure you can tell this is over 6%. Not real civilized b y southern standards.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large sample pour of properly colored Amber with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel malts with faint citrus, a little zest. Caramel flavors, lighter hop notes of citrus and mild zest again, mostly sweeter malt notes. Not a favorite

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Absolutely splendid red. Story here is malts. Deeply imbued in flavor. Not much if any hops, which I find welcome.
