grapefruit hoppy and a bit sweet with vine and flowers. malty and a bit bready with a lingering sugary hop finish. creamy head and a little yeast to this red ale, making it seem a touch toasty.

bigrond (1480) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Poured a light copper. Thin body but a big hops bite. Very bitter and not very balanced but a good easy drinking brew. Feels more like an IPA than a pale lager. Nice little bump in the alcohol content also.

bhensonb (11250) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt with mild citrus hop. Med body. Flavor is slightly spicy/citrus hop over some refreshing (?) roast malt. It’s decently hoppy, but not particularly bitter. It does fit the winter beer thing.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep amber/copper with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel and bready malts. Flavor about the same, with more hops than many pale ales. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

12 oz bottle pours deep amber with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, pine and a hint of citrus. Taste is sweet caramel malts and the right amount of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (5003) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle. Pungent hoppy nose with a little citrus and some nice, slightly spicy malt. Touch of dough. Very fresh! Deep orange body leaning toward red, rocky tannish head. As for taste, light bitterness amplified in such a dry environment, hard water, touch of dough and faint caramel, hops are woody into the aftertaste and a have an aged/musty bit of pungency to them (but not really any citrus). Thin body a touch over watery but stable. Interesting blend of flavors, reminds a little of an Irish Red that seems to fall partially outside of the categories of this site.

Pours a golden amber color with a white head that disipates leaving little to no lacing. Aromas of honey and hops. Flavors of hops and a bit of sweetness with a bit of citrus. A pleasant beer that is easy to drink as a session beer.

On draft @ Stoudts. Pours a dark clear Red/Amber color. Very thin but very persistent head that left lots of lace. Solid malty a solid if not somewhat flat malt backbone with some resinous and citrus. Crisp mouthfeel. Good beer but not Stoudt’s best.
