COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Northern California-inspired Red Ale.
This wickedly tasty red ale is brewed with a combination of seven specialty malts and west coast hops. The result is a rich, ruby-red color, lacy collar and an orgy of hop aroma and flavor. Hedonism Ale pairs excellently with steaks, burgers and other hearty meat dish

#17 - from the bottle. The extreme foam was a negative, instantly started foaming out of the bottle. Pours cloudy amber, huge out of control head. Smells of malt, forest, yeast and some bitter fruit hops. Taste is malt forward. Finishes is fruity hop, clay, with a mild bitterness. Well balanced but not a lot if flavour. The palate is surprisingly creamy for all the bubbles and foam. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thin white frothy head and reddish-brown body. Sweet, malty nose. Surprisingly thin body compared to the taste. Decent hop base and Irish malt flavour. Likeable.

What I got of this beer tasted and smelled great. Only problem is the bottle wouldnít stop fizzing, and when it stopped any effort to pour extremely slow down the side of the glass created monster head. By the end of the pour I only had 2 inches of beer. The bottle was handled correctly and was sitting in my basement cellar for 1 month, so not sure what happened.

Rating #839 - December 17, 2013 -Beer 17 from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

BeerAdvent 2013 Day Seventeen. Not a gusher. Hazy copper with tiny floaty bits, off-white lasting head, Pine citrus caramel on the nose, flavour is caramel orange tannic and quite quite bitter... my best guess is that some trub was bottled and Iím getting specks of solid hops; sounds like others had it worse though (nyah nyah I had a drinkable Advent Beer and you didnít).

DuffMan (6750) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle, Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2013. Extremely carbonated pour, resulting in ALL foam, requiring a good 5 minute interval to settle somewhat. Aroma is very phenolic, medicinals and plastics. Flavour is dominated by the same. Could this possibly what they were aiming for? Iíd normally think this is an infected mess but I see that my experience is not singular...

Day 17. A little rough patch for the calendar. Another day a little thin on the flavor. A sniff of hops in the finish but not much else the whole way through.

12oz brown bottle. Bit of a gush but into the glass poured a deep orange hazy liquid. Huge whipped cram-ish white head. Nose has a lemony hop note. Taste has caramel and a touch of citrus hops but a bit watery. Quick citrus hop note at the end with mild bitterness and mild caramel lingering. A bit empty overall. Nice nose and appearance but lacks flavour. At least the 7% alc isnít showing.

dresden (850) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 17, 2013
Ruby pour, huge enormous lasting head that I eventually scooped out. Smell is putrid like rotting cabbage. Taste is quite bitter, lots of vegetables, undrinkable. Also completely acidic and my bottle was only 3/4 full. Thanks
