Cybercat (3229) - Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Comes out of the bottle a clear, dark coppery amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, pale tan head. Fruity aroma is mainly apple with a hint of cherry, plus a malty undertone and a subtle yeasty note. Fruity, malty flavor has a tinny undertone and a grassy hint plus a fair amount of bitterness. Texture has average body and fizziness. Maybe not Stoudt’s best, but deserves at least a chance.

obguthr (3670) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Rich aroma of dried leaves, caramel, cashews, and cherries. Hazy copper, thin yellow head. Mouthfeel is rather fizzy. Flavor is dry leaves and few of the nuances found on the nose. Perhaps a bit of dark bread crust and cashews in the end. Didn’t quite deliver on the flavor.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. Pour is a nice coppery gold with a decent head and malty aromas. Kind of a biscuit and caramel nose with a little grass. Flavor has quite a bit of maltiness up front that gives way to a twangy hops presence of oranges and herbal hops.

Beautiful ruby red brew, a bit of rye spiciness, crisp and with a bit more depth than your average red.
