Tap at South Shore Brewery on Nov. 18, 2011. Clear reddish amber pour with a nice white head that laces well. Mild caramel in this, but there is a touch of hops in the taste that works very well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draught at the ABR 07 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear orange amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a white ring a spotty lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, some flowery hops and a touch of citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with more distinct caramel malt flavor than its aroma. Finish is a good balance of malt and citrus hops to give this a refreshing flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught sample at the brewpub, late July 2006. Wow, wash I excited that there were TWO lagers on tap during my visit, a golden and a red! Could a man do better? Anyway....medium amber with a thin lasting head and some nice lacing....honey-berry sweet aroma, perhaps a touch of cranberry....sweet body, light alcohol notes, grassy and slightly bitter qualities towards the finish, low carbonation....not bad I guess.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
ABR’ 05. This is a decent effort. A light red beer. Aroma of roasted malt, and the flavor is very dry roasted malt as well. Rather plain, but a decent session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Available only at Pizza Luce in Duluth, I believe. Pours, crystal clear clean red. Light dusky and lemony malt aroma. Flavor is a nice, rich, creamy, heavy and chewy blast of firm malt, mixed with wheat bread, bright yeasts, caramel, brown sugar and dulce de leche. This is nicely rounded and balanced with a sweet kiss of European style hops. Pretty respectable.
