On tap at the brewpub
Light, vaguely caramelly aroma. Dark amber hue. Very sweet, sort of a light cherry note...where they drink amber ale and it tastes just like cherry cola. Malts are toned down, sweet and alt-ish, but ultimately this is too sweet to win my favour. I’d struggle with a pint.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2008
Tap @ Brewery: Auburn, light head, great lacing. Nose of light caramel and grass. Subtle yeast and some caramelly malt esters. Light fruit in the tail, dry finish. Blah.

AKORN (127) - Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2014
Not much aroma. Amber in color. Malt taste but falls flat with no body. OK, but don’t plan on drinking again

Cavie (3753) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Clear light copper color with a small amount of white head. Aroma is a bit watery, with small amount of light malts. Very faint. Flavor is dry malts and grains with a slight bit of toasted notes. Watery finish. Straightforward and smooth.

thirdeye11 (5501) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber-orange with barely a ring of tan bubbles. Nose of honey, marshmallows, subdued nose overall. Taste of cola root, earthy, honey, and under-carbonated.

Draught at Kokopelli, Port Angeles
Dark amber color with creamy head. It’s just about the color, because it doesn’t have much aroma, not much flavor, and low bitterness.

robforbes (2055) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2008
purchased at central market in poulsbo, washington. pour is clear copper-red with a thin beige head that within 30 seconds is gone, no lacing. smell is of grass, roasted malt, touch of nuts, small scent of bread dough. taste is weak, watery, some malt, bit sour, some fruit, wood. overall not impressed, i would agree with Oakes in that it is a bit like a ch-ch-cherry cola.

Malt up front. Mild hop balance. Sips crisp and carbonated . More caramel malt flavor than I prefer in a red ale.
