Thanks to Springslicker for hookin’ me up with this one! Pours a dark dark amber color, almost like cranberry juice. Small white head. Aroma is mostly malt, with a kick of piney hops. Flavor is bittersweet. Grass/moss with lots of caramel/ to it, with a slight hop finish.

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.

DocLock (9876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2005
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.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2005
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.

ClarkVV (5704) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2005
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.

changxao (104) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2004
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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2004
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.
