BREWMUSKCLES (2302) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2007
NICE LOOKING RED AMBER THAT IS DARK AS CHERRIES. also keeps a slight beige head. good aroma and a nice body with an interesting bitter flavor of hops wood and quality malt. this beer may or may not work well with a slight uptake on the flavor volume. this beer has a good body quality carbonation and is mildly fruity. a tough beer to rate as it is between average and good.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle -- Poured deep, woody and red with a big creamy-foam head. The aroma hints at chocolate and coffee, interestingly. Indeed this drinks like a firm Irish red, full of flavors like coffee and chocolate, with a sweet finish. If this had a little more body, it would be much better. Perfect side for an Irish stew or some bangers and mash. (#3113, 9/30/2007)

McGarnigle (565) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Poured from a longneck bottled in June. Pours saddle brown with ephemeral head. Smells malty with a bit of caramel. I like the body: medium with a fair amount of carbonation. Slightly roasted malt flavor and slightly sweet. Only a hint of hoppiness. This is very easy to drink, but otherwise a pedestrian ale.

12 oz brown bottle courtesy of jjpm74, thanks dude! In the description, the nick name for this beer is Super Glide. As the owner of a super glide I am intrigued. Pop the lid and you get a whiff of berries, that fades into a yeasty beery aroma. Color is darker brown with light orange hints and tinge. The initial flavor is good beer impact. With the first taste I wanted to say it was hoppy, but it is not. A complex evolution of flavors takes place with this brew. Has a roastyness to it like no other. Impressive yet not overwhelming. Though I canít definitely say it is fruit, there is some interesting, quite different appeal to this. An earthy friendship abounds. After a while, a light building to medium, bitterness begins to appear on the back of the palate. I think while I drink this I get the feeling that the winds of Kokopelli are blowing thru my hair while I ride my Harley around the northeast US. Finish is a rather distant relationship with some sassiness. Mild to medium malty lingering bitterness is noticeable for a few moments after the last swallow. Thanks John, this was quite an experience. An amber ale almost as mild as Grolsch Amber Ale and much better than the oppressive bitterness of Mendocino Red Tail Ale

I liked the yeast and hints of gingery sweetness. I thought it well balanced, if a little under stated.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Poured a dark amber, relatively clear, nice thick off white head. Smell was bready, sweet and yeasty. Not very enjoyable as it was pretty bland and overcarbonated. Maybe the combo of dark and light malts and didnít do it for me.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Dark copper color. Pretty good. Tastes/looks more like a brown ale than a red or amber.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2007
This pours a deep amber with a small off-white head. Weak aroma of roasted grains and malt. Flavor is a nice balance of malt and hops, with moderate carbonation. Despite the low ratings here, I enjoyed this one.

rocbyter (1908) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2007
Moderate malt aroma with hints of fruits and coffee. Amber color and fizzy. Small antique white head. Sweet malty taste that thins out nicely on the palate to a smooth finish.
