Trade from Sut. Pours a moderate orange-tinted head that soon thins but stays around. Aroma of honey and cereal. Hazy yellow-orange. Quick hop bite that dominates early then lets the sweetness come through. Honey, lemon, more honey, vanilla, paper.

sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Body has a slight sweet malt flavor with just enough hop bite. The flavors blend better as it warms. A good brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Suttree for this. Pours deep copper/ruby with big, off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, cabernet, some hops and brown sugar. Malty taste, with slight toffee, cabernet, and caramel. Somewhat light on the palate, and not real complex. Not bad at all.

Bottle from Suttree .Pored a light amber orange, Nice fluffy head. Aroma was malty, more like a homebrew,? Taste and mouth feel was light, and the finish was sour. The head shows promise, and if these guys keep going, They have the potential to make some good brews.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle purchased at Hop and Leaf Feb 2005. Pours a bright orange-auburn color, with a thin veil of white bubbles for head. Aroma of light caramel and lightly sour fruits (peaches, oranges, mangoes). Flavor is strangely sweet and sour at the same time, with a definite yeast apparency, some graininess of texture and a bit of hops at the end. The beer gives glimpses of decent brewing, but overall, it stays pretty watery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy, orange-red amber, with a relatively small head. Aroma is sweet malt with a mild aroma of hops, leaves some lacing. Full body with a mildly sweet flavor, mostly malt, but has some faint fruit hints. The finish is somewhat dry, with a little hops. Overall a very good red ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber color with large tan bubbles that dissapear quick, leaving just a thin layer. Aroma is caramel and raw barley. Taste is like sweet wort (yeah, it’s that sweet) with even more malt with some biscuit and just a mild hoppiness. Medium to light bodied, this stuff has pretty good flavors. I’d have another but only 1 more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer poured an amber, copper color with a thin creamy white head which really didnt die, but just left a creamy island in the beer. Some slight lacing on the glass, but nothing to quantify as major. Aroma is of heavy malts, a hint of hop, a big ole’ malt bag, and perhaps a hint of fruits. Flavor is slightly fruity with mandarin in there, but is predominantly malty front...heavy malty front rather with a slight hopped finish. Pretty much one-sided in its sweetness, and I do like sweet. Tastes as a red should..dry finish, very mild, little carbonation. Medium bodied, long dry aftertaste!
