3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish that was moderate in duration. This is a solid beer for style.

Reddish/light amber pour with a nice off white head. Flavors of roasted grain, some light bread, a touch of floral hopping adds a nice element to the beer. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Tap @ brewpub. Clear, burnt orange appearance. Caramel/toffee malty, mild hoppy nose. Pretty nice caramel malty lager flavor with a mild earthy hoppiness. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Upstream. Filtered orange-brown. Watery, thin, sort of your 1990 homebrew. Doughy, some amber malt pungency. Overall just a little too insipid to hold my interests.

From the growler, thanks to Mike Hall. Same name, but definitely not the same beer as the former Upstream Firehouse Red. This has a wonderful toasted almond aroma. The flavor has a mild caramel toffee taste in a very light bodied beer. Nice quick and drying finish. A definite improvement from the previous namesake.
