September 2012. From bottle. Average amber ale with buttery caramel flavors, malt, spice, yeast. Nothing special.

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Appearance: clear deep copper with sticky light tan head. Aroma: toasty sweet malts, some caramel, a dose of earthy hops, brown sugar. Taste: some grapefruit and floral hops, easily balanced and then slightly overpowered by slightly chewy, sweet malts (caramel, toffee, nuts, brown sugar). Finish: a lingering tang of hops trying to come back against the bigger malt bill, with a palate full enough to satisfy even at 5%. Notes: Iíve been on a hunt for a kickass Irish Red/Amber Ale. This wasnít it, but it was solid enough and at $3.99 for a 1pt6oz bottle, Iím not sorry I tried it.

BeerandBlues2 (10099) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, grapefruit and floral hops with light peach esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness tipping the balance over the toasted malts. Some light fruit notes with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A lightly hazy beer, amber in color and topped by a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. Quite hoppy aroma, piney and citrusy, with caramel maltyness in the back. Some bitterness in the flavor, but not too much, balancing the caramel maltyness quite good. Full body with pleasant carbonation. Citrus peel and some tropical fruit notes in the else bitter and caramel malty finish. Sure a tasteful one, drinks easy, but itís a bit too malty on a summer day this hot. 130630

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Copper, thin white head. Faint aroma of toffee and caramel Taste is caramel and not much else. I do get some piney, woody flavors. Simple, but tasty.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy amber color with very little head on it. Nose is quite malt forward with some toasting in there. Taste has that toasting in there with the grapefruit also subtly coming through. Interesting.

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle; poured an orange copper color. Aroma of caramel and nuts. Didnít get too much of the grapefruit. Flavor had a slight tart and fruity taste, to go with the caramel and nuts. Fairly hoppy and zesty in the finish. A bit too much carbonation. Ok overall.
