Un malt délicat et complexe, une touche de centennial et de vanille dans un liquide aussi facile à boire que précieux.

Cross between a red and a pale ale. Cascade on the nose - big time. A little bitter finishing, but very good overall. This is very close to what I like.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Pours a dirty, cloudy, homebrewish, orange-amber with a pillowy, foamy long-lasting light caramel colored head. Just lovely! Aromas of grapefruit, toffee, and fruit hard candy. Smooth, lightly oily mouthfeel. Ripe fruit, toffee, and a bit of oaky vanilla. Grapefruit bitterness at the finish. Very nice effort.

Hazy reddish brown in color... Floral and sweet caramel malt aroma... flavor is typical of a red, malty with notes of hops on the palate... Not that impressed... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on 6/18/2013.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy red.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, light pine, oak.
Taste: Light medium bitterness, light oak, caramel but not overpowering. Accessible.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering aftertaste, slightly sticky.

Summary: I had this at Savor 2011 and as with a lot of late tastings at a Savor event didn’t really get good notes on it, so was excited to try again. This did not disappoint. I could drink this everyday, it’s really enjoyable, not too aggressive but plenty of flavor. Too bad I live on the wrong coast to get it easily...

Draft. Hazy maroon chestnut color, tan edge head, solid lacing. Aroma of fresh Christmas trees. Taste is beautiful pine, fruits, lightly toasted edges. Delicious.

This is certainly a different kind of red. It’s dirty red brown, almost orange in color, with glimmering, slitter-like sediment and an off-white head. Its aroma is heavy of caramel sweetness and a slightly soured wood. Very nice! Strong of oak, but not nauseatingly so, it’s light on the palate, but full-flavored with an almost buttery consistency. Althoug the oak presence is strong, its role in the flavor is tame. Instead, the flavor is dominated by an earthy hop and almost English-style malt bill. Overall, though, it still comes down to a very definitive red ale experience. Hats off to The Bruery for sticking to the style while still being adventurous.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours brown/amber with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee from the malts, plus a good amount of citrusy hops and a little bit of oak. Flavor about the same, with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A good beer.
