3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy crimson/amber colour with a nice sized dense off-white head. Aroma of concord grapes, fresh hops and a healthy dose of malt - the nicest Amber i've ever smelt. Light-bodied; Definate concord grapeyness in the taste, followed by some malt and no hops. Aftertaste fairly mellow, a bit of sweetness only. Overall, a nice beer-a bit less than great...but really worth a try! I was lucky enough to get this beer in an in-person trade with Suttree in Knoxville, Tennessee and sampled it on 1-October-2003, Thanks Phil!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a thin, tight head. Sweet, bready aroma with a clean, malt flavor. Smooth finish, little aftertaste, quite appealing and worth trying again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Red Ale"? What the hell does that mean? Is that a style? Pours with a sturdy white head and an, um, red body. berries in the aroma, but just slightly. Nice hop crispness, finishes smooth and malty. Nice malt backbone in this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a small, creamy white head. It has an interesting fruity aroma that is more malty sweet than hoppy. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, with a nice malty sweet flavor and a long sweet finish. Not bad and more robust than a lot of american red ales.
