This truly has red magic and you get hit with all five malts. Pours a bubbly hazy amber with a little bubbly head. Wicked aroma of caramel malts, toffee, and brown sugar. Tastes of caramel, toffee, malt tea, and brow bread. Had a medium smooth body with average carbonation and just felt a little watery at times, but everything else is bang on.

Dammmmmmm son! Surpirsed as heck by this, not because it was in a can, not because it’s possibly North America’s most ambiguous style but because the can was all dented! Anyhow, this is what a Red Ale should taste like if I may opine as such. A tad light in colour but still red with a light beige head. Notes of honey, caramel, walnuts, brown bread, cigars and light herbal hops play magical musicals to the nostrils. The taste is all of that, sweet up front and finishing bitter but leaving the malty goodness lingering. So fresh and amazingly good mouthfeel, chewy and medium soft carboation with a rich silky smooth body. Hook me up with a dozen to session....smiles!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish-brown with a thick, low head. Very fresh pale malt nose shows only slight caramel and breadcrust. Slightly sweet accent with a kiss of chocolate, light toast, and a subtle earthy hop underpinning. Slightly watery finish increases refreshment value.

Clear, deep dark amber with thick beige head. Fresh dark malts, earthy and unbelievably fresh aroma. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation. Gorgeously fresh, like drinking in the earth’s freshly sown barley. Super intense grain flavors with no flaws. Solid and smooth and incredibly well-made.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Pint in Port Williams. Again another beer with a faint aroma. Red amber in colour with a decent head clinging to the glass. Smooth texture. Decent red ale style, slight hint of hops. Flavour doesn’t really blow you away but seems a good quality ale. Re rate, this beer is fantastic, the hops give it a great bitterness that is well balanced throughout the ale. Great stuff.

On tap at the Port Pub, sampled 10/4/08. Red amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy off-white head. Caramel, light bodied, citrus, and fruity aroma. Caramel and bready malts with a citrusy and lightyl earthy bitter finish. Medium bodied, juicy but firm mouthfeel. Like the rest of the lineup, this isn’t your average brewpub Amber.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008-11-01. Dark copper-amber body with a nice creamy beige head leaves good lace behind. (3+) Sweet aroma, fruit, light yeast, dust sweet caramel malt. Flavour has a creamy fruit character that is probably largely the yeast. Makes me briefly think diacytl/caramel but I dont think it is per se, pleasant. Light bitterness shows up near the end but the lasting impression is sweet fruit. Smooth average plus palate. Decent. <i>On tap at Port Pub, as Mojo Red.</i>
