American style red ale. Brewed with Maris Otter to build a full malt character, a high percentage of crystal malt to create a brilliant red hue and toffee/caramel notes in the flavor. The hops used are a blend of English and American strains, producing a mildly hoppy brew with a solid malt background. Official beer served at the 2012 Spartan Race.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a deep red color with a small, off white head. The nose is slightly doughy with bread notes mixed in. The flavor follows suit with an earthy bitterness, some toasted notes, and a slight caramel sweetness. For some reason the bitterness seems uneven, but itís still a decent brew. Medium bodied with lower than average carbonation and a malty finish. A slightly different twist on the original.
