COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

Bottle. Pours copper with a large frothy off white head. Good retention. Aroma is grassy hops, pine, some fruit. Taste is oaky and grassy hops, followed by some malt and sweet caramel and finished with a medium to strong bitterness. Some citrus and toastiness. Mildly sweet, medium body, light carbonation.

BlackHaddock (3642) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
8 oz on-tap at the Stones Liberty Station place in San Diego on 17th March 2014: a lovely sunny afternoon session that lasted about four beers too many! Anyway this was beer number two and then it all went a bit silly because I started ordering flights of heavier brews like a man possesed! This beer came mahogany red with an off-white head that gave some good lacing. Fairly bitter for an amber/red ale, the malts not managing to overpower the hop content. Tart and sharp almost in the mouthfeel, cleansed my palate for the onslaught that followed, not bad at all.

Pours amber brown and smells of toasted wholemeal bread and toasted malt. There is a lot of flavour here, rye and toasted malt balanced with what to me is piney hops, very nice indeed. Only let down is that to me it came across a little thin and watery. Overall definitely a good beer which I would be happy to drink all day long!

I would say this tasted more like pale ale than an amber ale, loads of hop character with some good malt background

dinkle50 (960) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Clear red pour with a single finger head. Lots of lace. Medium mouth. Aroma of citrus and grain. Taste is sweet with caramel and a nice hop bitterness, almost grassy. This is pretty balanced over all and insanely drinkable.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2014
355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Crisp, pine hop. A little malt poking through. Appearance: Clear ruby/amber body with a thin off-white cap. Decent lacing. Taste: Nice piney hop. Not too bitter at all. Quite tasty! Palate: Light bodied for sure. A good long finish, though. Ends on citrusy hops. Overall: Underrated. Lower-alcohol, lighter bodied, but doesn’t skimp on flavor at all. Great stuff!
