Great ruby red/brown appearance. Sweet (but not too sweet) malty aroma... maybe with a hint of pungent funk. A light IPA taste with a slight pungent flavor and fairly drinkable. I like it.

hfmejias (921) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 18, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Slightly hazy, reddish amber, small tan head, nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and malts, sort of roasty, combined with some fruit notes. Taste starts sweet a malty and turns hoppy and bitter towards the end, dry finish. Nice beer, easy to drink.

malvrich (71) - durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2015
A: Hard pour yields a 1 finger pillowy tan head atop a tawny amber clear body. Head retains and laces well. S: Subdued hops and toast with a sweet fruit note. T: A tart, fruity hop bite on first sip is quite pronounced. Unexpected (strange?) but OK. A little pine resin. Malts fairly nondescript save for a bit of roast flavor on the finish. M: Fine bead carbonation is very nice. A bit of hop chewiness also makes things interesting. Not enough to save this ale from mediocrity. O: Interesting take on whatever style this is supposed to be. Red ale/Pale ale? I don’t think the flavors meld very well together to create any complete "whole". Disjointed? I like Stoudt’s pils. Won’t buy this again.

Draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. Shimmery copper pour. Pretty heavy/dominant maltiness going on here. Caramel malts in the aroma with feint citrus hops. Flavor is mostly sweet caramel malts. ok but very little bitterness

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2012
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel nose with some light citrus notes and mild oxidation. Starts with average fullness and sweet caramel malts with a decent amount of grassy and citrus hop flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. Body has a little more oxidation than I’d like and the bottle is fairly fresh.
