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.

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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
