COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

On tap at the Bruery; a light brown color with a khaki like head. Aroma of citrus, fig, and dark fruit. Flavor had a bit more complexity with some caramel/toffee. Good overall.

Pours clear orange/amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, grass, pine and forrest. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long bitter and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Thanks to drabmuh for opening this bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a dark amber-red color with a really nice light tan head and quite a bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings a fair amount of citrus and pine hops plus a bit of oak and some sweet amber malt. The taste brings more of the same with a fairly-strong oak presence plus some citrus and pine hops. Body is medium with a slight bitterness. Overall, a decent beer but a bit time and the flavors and scents never really seemed to pop or meld. Hopefully The Bruery will stray out toward styles like this more often, as this was a step in a positive direction. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-19-2010

Tap at Sugar Maple. Pours to a red body with a thin tan head. Aromas and flavors seemed to be your typical imperial red ale type. Malts mainly. I didn’t get the complexity of herbs or vanilla or oak. Mostly just a hoppy amber ale. The palate was medium bodied. The alcohol was more apparent than I’d had hoped.

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

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a reddish brown with a huge thick and foamy off white head that leaves tons of lacing. Aroma is several hop varieties, herbs, oak, caramel and malt. Flavor is hop forward with the oak following immediately. A bit of caramel and malt in the finish, but any sweetness is masked by the oaky tannins and hop bitterness.

Mellow cloudy orange with a very thin haze of white. Bright hoppy aroma of peach, fruit cocktail, pineapple. Average carbonation, dry finish. Tropical and dank grapefruit hop flavor as well as some more fruit cocktail, toffee, and caramel.
