Amber color with small foamy head. Fruity hop aroma. Caramel malt with ample but not overpowering grassy-citrus hops. Also notes of molasses, rye and even a touch of nuttiness. Good balance between malt and hops. Solid red ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What is a double red ale anyway? Why doesn’t this just become another style, like an American Strong Ale? At any rate, this was reasonable, with a pronounced hop front and plausible balance of hops and malts. (on tap at Republic, Minneapolis)

En pression at brewery. Pint glass. Appearance: amber In color. Transparent. White frothy head with good retention. Aroma: hops, some spiciness. Taste: slightly sweet with a bitter hoppy finish. Palate: thin body with a frothy texture. Overall: well made. Hoppier than I normally prefer, but very enjoyable to drink. Good palate and flavor.

Bomber. Cherry wood with light orange head that quickly fades. Tropical fruit and resinous hops, caramel, and malty aromas. Piney bitterness that lingers. Body is medium with fizzy carbonation.

Tried during RBSG. From notes. Pine with a bit of citrus and a lot of caramel malt. Very good.

Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of red malt, earth and dirt. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of the reddish malt notes I am not a big fan of. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Deep burgundy stained glass-red color, foamy glass lacing head. I’m not the biggest Amber fan, but this one is really quite nice. Big smooth malt tones, with some definite sweet fruity amber malt tones, but balanced out by rich caramel and other specialty malts. Quality hop balance, give its a citrus, bubblegum edge. Solid offering.
