3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Meditrina. Reddish brown with lasting head and lace. Harsh herbal aroma that takes a sec to settle in. Roasted chocolate caramel sweetness with aggressive herbal lingering bitterness and long roasted chocolate finish. Somewhat harsh for a red ale I think.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Ruddy and full bodied, this is a great drink. Sturdy and classic, with a full-on toasted character and slight but well balanced hop kick in the finish. Delish. (#5807, 10/9/2014)

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty malt and mild pine hops in the aroma. Flavor starts mildly sweet and nutty. Grassy bitterness and an unpleasant metallic aftertaste in the finish. Decent but nothing special

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 650 ml. bottle that appears be marked 13148. The pour is brown to copper with no red hues as far as I can tell. Nice full head. The aroma is malt forward with a citrus note and a moderate hop note. The body is medium. The taste begins sweet and malty and quickly evolves into a hop-fed dry finish. Not overly bitter but the bitterness that is there lingers.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
6/27/13. Meh. Aroma is nice and hoppy in typical VT style, but this disappoints from there. Thin mouthfeel, and taste. Poorly balanced malt/ hop. No sir, I don't like it.
