Very thin aroma. Some light caramel. Similar flavour with some weak citrus hop. Dissapointing.

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a nice amber color. Not a lot of aroma, sweet malt with a hint of fruit/hops. Flavor is malty, with a touch of bitterness.

jbruner (3852) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of sweet maltiness with a hint of citrus hops. Taste is all the malt, a bit of crisp yeast. Clean and easy, just not too exciting.

Red/amber pour. I can smell a bit of carmel and some nuttiness. Taste is sweet and smooth. A bit better than the rating would leave you to believe.

Keg at Craft Conundrum, Charleston, 18/02/15. Reddish amber with a decent off white cap. Nose is caramel, buttery notes, sweet tunes, light malt. Taste comrpises apple notes, caramel, straw, faint biscuit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so.

oh6gdx (24919) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottled (backlog, Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm). Reddish amber colour with a small slightly off-white fluffy head. Aroma is some caramel malts, mild earthy notes, a bit "hard water" as well as some slight floral and grassy notes. Flavour is similar, but has a quite strong and crispy maltiness to it. Mild toastednotes in it as well.

asheft (2923) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
On tap. Sweet, lightly nutty and lightly stone fruity aroma. Clear brown-red under a lasting, off-white cover. Quite sweet nutty malt flavour with accents of stone fruit and faint dried fruit. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, smooth.

Patrickctenchi (5858) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle: Slightly hazed amber/orange with a creamy tan head. Aroma of sweet grain, strawberry, toffee.... Taste is creamy toffee malt, light fruit, toasty malts. Sweet and fruity. Very pleasant.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2015
12oz bottle, picked up from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. No date, just a barely-legible code on the bottle. Shared with b3shine (he left me with 3/4). Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head, just a dot or two of lace sticks. Big caramel malt, toasty, mild mustiness. Some over ripe fruit. Doesn’t taste fresh to me, and if it is fresh, then this is a very boring bad unbalanced one-note red ale. Moderate-plus sweet taste, light bitter. Mild bite in the finish. Light dry finish. Medium body. Kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Nope.. It’s not horrible, but I’m not at all in love with this. Just a caramel malt bomb. After 4oz I have no interest in finishing this... But I’ll try, because I hate wasting beer. Reading others’ reviews as I try to finish the last bit here now. Definitely seeing the vegetal. Little herbal hop.

Draft to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a fairly transparent slightly reddish orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid too; a nice balance of caramel, toast, roast, and a bit of hops. Tastes like it smells, but not as balanced, with a fairly sticky medium-bodied mouthfeel. More toast than roast. On the tongue. Not bad.
