The beer pours amber in color with a finger of off-white/khaki colored head. Mild citrus hops on the nose along with some grass notes as well. Toffee sweetness and bread. Unfortunately, the nose is rather bland. There’s a bit of sweetness of caramel and toffee and some mild citrus and grass hop flavors. A touch of bitterness, but a definite malt extract flavor in there as well. Medium in body and carbonation. Underwhelming.

On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a hazy red-amber body with a white head. Aroma is dusty with caramel, light hop resins and husky grain. Flavors are of slightly soggy malt, wet dog and grainy. Not as hoppy as the aroma. Lively carbonation. That said it is still decent compared to the amazing large amount of boring amber ales out there.

This beer was only okay for me. Heavy on the malt, it’s a bit sticky sweet as well. Some hops are there but weakly. A disappointment after the pale.

wlajwl (3565) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Aroma is light tropical fruit, caramel and mild sweetness. The flavor is caramel malts, tropical fruit, a small hint of hop resin and a tangy/bitter finish.

thegreenrooster (3088) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pour is a cloudy dark orange with a large white head. Aroma is sweet amber malts and a wee bit of hops. Flavor is again a nice thick malt with a little hoppy backbone. Decent beer. Nothing great but nothing bad either. A heavy malt forward beer.

Headbanger (3051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
22oz bottle 4/20/13 (Binny’s Naperville Clearance Rack)-46° in English Pint-Pours a clear medium amber with a loose two finger off white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and caramel. Taste of malt, caramel, and hops coming thru on the back end. This medium bodied amber is well balanced and quite tasty.

beersearcher (2297) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
Pours red like the name. Getting a trio of flavors here. First is a sweetness. Then some cereal tastes. Finally some hop notes. Balanced but a little watery.

Cloudy Amber,thin head, moderate carbonation. Some light hop aroma with malt,carmel,light roast,some fruit maybe tropical like with orange and melon notes. Wheat like or bready malt. Taste is malty with some carmel notes,somewhat hoppy,has a flatness in the middle of taste,maybe some oxidation. Has chocolate,has a hoppy dullness towards the end along with a light bitter.Some dry toast/roast at finish,could use more bittering. Average/maybe above average.Pretty good anytime beer.

Medium dark red color, though not much head and it did not last long. Decent aroma, inviting, mix of sweetish malts and the bitterness of the hops. Taste follows the aroma well, slight sweetness of the malts at first, with reasonable bitter aftertaste from the hops, making it well balanced

Reddish color with an off white head. Hops are mildly noticeable in the pour but the aroma doesn’t linger. Taste is slightly sweet and malty with a slight bitterness in the finish. Mouth feel is medium with light carbonation, while drinkability is good because of the smoothness of the finish and the nice malty sweetness.
