This rich, amber ale is smooth, mildly hopped and brewed with a special mixture of four different types of malted barley. It is full bodied and satisfying with a slight fruity note.

Poured a clear reddish brown with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malts with a small amount of hops in the background. On first sip, a noticeably sweet and fruity profile. Relatively smooth and simple. Overall, a nice ale.

An excellent beer to accompany BBQ. The smoky spices are a great balance and the carbonation doesn’t interfere with the tasting of the food.

5oz sample from honeymoon. Nice color and some foam. Aroma is nicely toasted malts. Enticing. Flavor profile matches, with nice toasty, bready character. Not overly sweet. Refreshing. Good.

One of Smoky Mountain’s better brews, Cherokee Red featured an earthy nutty malt with light chocolate notes and coppery penny finish. Pours lightly reddish amber with a full white head that leaves a respectable amount of lacing behind.

5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Poured a light amber color with a small white head. Aroma was very malt forward. Lots of sweetness in this one. Sweet malt, touch of light floral notes.

Very mild smell...olfactory fatigue fast, slightly light and fruity, taste is like a very light sparkling grape juice....very very bland....watered down big time, but smooth...that’s about it...not bad just uneventful

Refreshing beer that delivers what it promises. It's a red ale that tastes like a red ale. I think the people who are panning it were expecting more hops or something else uncharacteristic of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2015
5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Caramel and toasty malt. Darker bread, grain. Corn in the finish and all throughout (DMS?). Moderate sweet taste, very mild bitter. Medium body. Kind of slick. Light carbonation. Orange amber color. Virtually no head. Malty sweet grainy amber ale. Not enjoyable.

Dark amber. Very light haze but only noticeable because of the clarity of the light and Velas Helles. Nice nutty caramel maltiness. Best so far.
