2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just and absolutely mundane red ale. Not super malty or hoppy, perfect for the people who want bland beer that is colored differently.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Orland Park, IL, brewpub: Brilliant corporate description - "our Red Ale is copper in color..." Seems like they should have called it "Copper Ale." Anywhat - They were right about the color, and it was capped with a respectable white head. The aroma was sweet, caramelly, with a touch of hop fruitiness. Same with the flavor, but seemed slightly off. Clean finish. My first will be my last.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery, sample. Mildly hazy orange color, white head leaving lace. Almost totally flat, drier texture. Mild bitter fruity taste, coriander. Sweet and bitter spiced taste. Maybe this is what a cask ale is supposed to taste like, Iím not sure, but this is a bit too flat for me.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA. Reddish amber with a tight white head; the aroma is hidden by the incredibly low temperature at which this is served; in the mouth there are lots of fruity berries and some dry grains, before a dry finish. I was expecting an Irish style Red Ale - which this definitely isnít - but it was a pleasant surprise.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at Rock Bottom Cincinnati. Looks solid; a transparent copper with foamy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt and light hops with a touch of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, probably at GABF. Pours a standard amber with an offwhite head. The nose is caramel, neutral citrus and resin hops, light malt. On tasting, moderate sweetness and caramel malt notes. Light fruity hopping. Pretty inoffensive and bland. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Cincinnati location. Pours a clear amber with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, floral and grassy hops. Flavor initially of bready and caramel malt with some bitterness in the finish. Malty amber, but it does have some hops too. Very drinkable!
