COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
75% American Red Ale, 25% Ale Aged in American Oak Barrels. A brash American Red ale, dripping with citrusy Centennial hops, mellowed by a touch of oak. Aromas of toffee, citrus, crushed herbs, vanilla and fresh-sawn oak. Complex!

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a nice amber-red with an offwhite head. The nose is nice and fresh, light berry notes, caramel and some orange zest. The oak is very subdued. On tasting, the oak is a bit more present, lending notes of vanilla and white pepper. More soft toffee and a balancing bitterness. Not overly complex but well put together. Solid.

egajdzis (5509) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Hazy red amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, grass, floral hops, vanilla, and wood. Taste of toffee, caramel, citrus, grapefruit, some vanilla, and light spices, and lighter wood tannins.

presario (4817) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle. Very dark hazy amber with a too thick long lasting head. Head may be in part to hotel plastic cup. Super spicy aroma is a bit of a surprise: pumpkin spice meets poultry seasoning. Body is thick. That same weird spice note returns on the tongue along with a citrusy sourness. Is all that funk from the oak!?

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2011
On tap pours dark reddish amber with white head, aroma has notes of vanilla, toffee, some slight grass and pine notes, going into a slight bit of oak. Taste is a combination of toffee, caramel, some spice, biscuit, touch of grass and pine, slight hint of oaky vanilla finishing slightly dry.

Leighton (13373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle at the Funky 7, in Brooklyn. Pours copper-red with a thick, off-white head. Bready malt nose, hints of spices. Fairly sweet flavor, touches of caramel, bread, wood, herbs. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Mild citrusy bitters in the finish, some caramel, sugar, flowers and herbs. Very nice beer.

thirdeye11 (5730) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2011
(750ml bottle thanks to Mora2000) cloudy copper pour with thick meringue-like tan head. Excellent lacing as well. Nose of shortbread, cinnamon sticks, and Belgian yeast. Taste of cinnamon sticks, cream, Belgian yeast, anise, and allspice. Excellent finish, perfect carbonation, just a delicious beer. Cheers to The Bruery for this very well done Amber ale.

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Pours a red brown color with aroma of sweet fruit berry. Taste is a sharp bitterness bite at first but smooth aftertaste after the swallow. A surprisingly tasty amber ale that I would order again.

hopdog (9570) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2011
750ml bottle. Thanks Tom. Poured a deeper amber with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of wood, caramel, nuts and toffee. Tastes of the same with citrus and a little toasty.

JoePeesie (909) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2011
pours a redish brown with an off white head. Big Centennial hop nose and taste. Also picked up the woodiness from the barrel. There is a lot going on in the beer the back tast was for sweet and citrus fruits, spices, and malt. Interesting beer.

Draft. Pours hazy amber brown with a beige head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, pine, and sweet malts. The flavor has citric hops, sweet malts, oak, some light flowery notes, and a nice bitter finish. Pretty good.
