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. Itís 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, itís 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.

Zymurgeist2 (1103) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Harryís Hofbrau. Complex rich malt, caramel and floral hops. Pours a hazy amber-copper with a nice white head that laces. Flavor is rich caramel, citrus, sweet malt. Moderate bitterness balances well but lets the malt be the star. Slightly puckering and tart leading to a semi-dry finish of citrus forward hops. Sweetness lingers on the lips. Young oak appears as it slightly warms. Great beer!

high_on_hops (669) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
On tap. Pours a great red-amber with a thin off-white head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of citrus hops, oak, spices like cinnamon, and vanilla with a lemon background. The flavor is citrusy hops and lemon up front with a spice middle and malt aftertaste over a medium, fizzy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty fruity hop aroma. Great red color. This is definitely on the hoppy side for a red. The beer tastes intense at first sip but the ending is pale by comparison. Still, good stuff.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Woody, fruity, perfume, caramel. Very tasty. This is a great, well balanced beer.
