Flavorful and complex, our Red Ale is copper in color and medium-bodied with a rich malt profile. Crystal hops lend a robust, fruity hop character for balance.

Fat. Klar bärnstensfärgad öl med ett stort smutsvitt skum. Dofter och smaker av karamell, frukt och en del jordiga toner. Inget värt att lägga på minnet.

A little hoppy at least and not bad all around. Grabbing for something at this place. Amber pour with ok head and some lacing. Light copper bitter finish. Tap at Bethesda brewpub.

jcnielsen (2771) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Rock Bottom in Charlotte. Pours a clear amber color with white head. Pretty minimal aromas of caramel and slight pine. Piney hop flavor balanced with caramel malts. One of the better ones on the flight. This is the type of beer I would have really dig when I was 21.

notalush (5512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Tap at the Chicago location - lame, watery-ass amber - weak malt texture and very little flavor aside from some pumpernickel and subdued, earthy hoppiness - a bit of acidity, an almost sour note - even for an American amber it is pretty sub-par.

One of the better beers in the flight and that is not saying much. This one has a better balance of hopps and malt. You can taste the crystal hopps in this one. Smells malty and pours light red with a reddish head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (5499) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Tap, Seattle. Pours a clear dark copper to reddish body with a small foamy off-white head. Very light nose, some Cheerio-like cereal grain with some husky and grainy notes. The flavor is pretty bland and boring with some light husky toasted malt, minimal to no hops, save for a bit on the late finish. Light bodied with watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Some lingering grainy maltiness. Pretty boring stuff.

This poured a red color with a white head. Aroma was of toasted malt and grassy hops. Flavor similar, nothing outstanding but nothing offputting either.

Tap in Arlington VA> Pours clear amber with a medium creamy beige head that dissipates fairly slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is floral, caramel, cardboard. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, floral and a bit metallic. Medium body. Pretty meh.

Tap @ Rock Bottom Yorktown. Light amber with small head. Medium malt. A lot of crystal malt. Doesn’t do much for me.
