355ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, white head. Caramel malty aroma, a touch of orange and orange zest, minimally piney, hoppy overtones. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, slighty chalky, metallic, very cautious fruity hints of strawberry.

Decent, but average amber ale. Pours amber (duh!) with thin white head, and sparse carbonation. Initial aroma of IPA, muted with some malt. Taste is hops, malt, mouth feel is about right.

I was expecting a lot more from this one. It's a decent beer... if I was in a good mood I'd say "mild", otherwise you could say "boring".

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2013 Bottle at BrewDog Birmingham. Clear amber ale with a ginger and Brussels sprouts aroma. Watery taste with no noticeable bitterness. Smooth and nice feel. Decent but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An extremely clean beer. The nose is a little yeasty and I would prefer a little more coppery caramel to a beer that claims to be a red, but overall it is light and pleasant. I could drink this stuff all night, but only because it?s so palatable. This sweetness-lacking red leaves a little to be desired, but its alcohol is smooth and will having you forgetting about your day within a single bottle.

Had this at the Durango Applebee's...I know pretty sad. I went to the brewery; is just down the street, but they were closed (it's Sunday). This is a good red but can't say I know this style that well. It a pretty clear amber colored ale served out of a tap. It has a light hop and malt body, light bitterness and overall decent flavor. Nothing special but pretty good.
