3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 I remember the sweet, malty finish the best. A copper-tone brew with a marginal head and adequate carbonation, it was a scratchy-red mouth-feel, a touch of sweetness. I need to try this again at a later date.

Wake me when this one is over. Light copper appearance, little to no head. No aroma whatsoever - I tried. Very muted flavor, slightly medicinal in nature. Perhaps a bit of roastiness - but otherwise pretty bland. Decent mouthfeel. Pass on this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A "strange brew". Oysters, honey and a hint of bitter. A reddish hue. Sweet butterscotch aroma. Very soft palate. Honey in the flavor and an almost wintergreen/anticeptic quality. Unbalanced.

I did not have hight expectations and that saved this brew. It had a red color and some flavor maybe a little more than BMC but not much.

Pours red of course. Nice head to go with the pour. Aroma is brerady and malty. Flavor is nice. Its roasted malts with a citrus hop aftertaste. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
OK- this was the fourth beer of the night and continued a rapid downward rating trajectory. A lame excuse of a "microbrew," this "ale" could have just as easily been produced by Budweiser or Miller. It poured clear copper, with a thin off-white head and a biscuity aroma with a touch of caramel and grassy hops. The flavor was way, way, way too weak, with lightly sweet, toasty, biscuity malt and grassy hops. A tart and tangy mouthfeel led to little flavor. Lame, lame, lame.

Light red color with a medium beige head. Aroma is bready and a little fruity. Flavor is sweet, caramel, tangy and fruity.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy medium amber with a medium light brown head. Floral aroma of caramel, bread, raisin and red apple. Medium velvety body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Slightly woody flavor of caramel, red apple, plum, and bread with a hint of raisin. This could be a decent session beer. Not bad.

Bottled. Not a bad beer. Didn’t knock my socks off. Had a nice malt character to it. Besides that tasted and looked like a red.

Nothing special here. Like Killians almost here. Nice color and weak aroma. Light red-like taste... pretty average here
