By the numbers red ale. Not much on the nose. Caramel malts on entry, highly carbonated. Minerally and metallic on the finish. Drinkable, nothing more.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2011
A nice beer. Deep amber, longlasting fairly thin head. Nice mild hops aroma. Mildly bitter with an offsetting sweetness. Very drinkable - kind of a pleasant surprise from a brewer I am not familiar with.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a tall, fluffy head and quite a bit of sediment in there. The aroma picked up sweet bready and fruity notes with accents of detergent and lavender.. earthy on the back of the nose. The flavor found bready and nutty malts at the core, with tangy fruit skins and related bitterness around.. sweet caramel, darker fruit, and dry, spicy earth on the finish. Light-medium bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. decent balance, feel, and flow.

Bomber. Pours a clear amber color with an inch of foamy off-white head. The aroma has hints of grassy hops, citrus peel and earthy malt. The taste starts with mild grapefruit and nutty malt flavors along with some caramel and tart citrus. The body has medium-level carbonation with some creaminess to it along with a dry, bitter finish and slight grapefruit aftertaste. Overall, a smooth and easy drinking brew that’s a little more balanced than their Amber Ale.

Pours a slightly cloudy reddish bronze with a creamy light tan head. Nose is malty. Nicely carbonated, the taste is predominately of hops with a slight malt profile on the front. A pleasant beer that can pair well with a variety of deli sandwiches.

nuplastikk (5615) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Murky amber-brown. Nice, mellow hop and amber/caramel malt aroma. I’m not the biggest Amber/Red fan, but this one is pretty solid. Big hops up front, but also a big, rich malt presence. Sugary, sort of sticky specialty malt feel. Big hop bill more than balances it out. Quite a well-executed beer.

Purchased as six-pack from Greenwood Market for $7.99. I like the Scuttlebutt IPA and didn’t recognize this particular brew so I decided to give it a shot. Doesn’t hurt that the price was right. Pours slightly cloudy, golden-brown in color, with a thin off-white head. Smells faintly of iced tea and granola. The hops are fairly forward and any malt flavor seems like it comes strictly from the aroma. Does the job for a red.

12 oz. Pours a fully hazy dark amber with golden brown edges. Loosely scattered tan head. Not much lace. Biscuity, toasty nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, biscuit, and iced tea on the mid palate, leading to a toasted hopped finish with some linger to it. Not bad.
Earlier Rating: 7/18/2006 Total Score: 3.2
Draft at the 74th Street. Dark ruddy brownish body with a valiant if overmatched off-white falling head. Light yeasty bread on the nose, gentle malt character, medium body, crisp hop finish. A little spicy and bitter for a training-wheels beer, but not by much. An instantly likable, instantly forgettable beer that will start no arguments in its life.
Draft at the brewpub, on nitro. Give this two more notches for flavor over the normally aspirated version (normally this gets a 3.0). Nose picks up some grassy notes somewhere. Otherwise, not much happening and no other changes. Not as flat or as creamy as most nitros. Like everything Scuttlebutt does, the nitro is understated.
