hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with ppoitras (thanks!). Poured a deep orange color, with a reddish tint, and an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of oranges, grapefruit, floral, toasted malts and some caramel. Aromas on the softer side. Tastes of toasted malts, light caramel, and some citrus. Thinner body.

Bottle. Malty sweet nose along with some spicy and sugar notes. Red body almost orange with off white head that flattened out. Sugar punch of sweetness up front also spicy. Sweet sugar mellowed out with some hop bitterness. Quit a blend here decent brew.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish color with a minimal head. Nose is a mixture of fruit and malt. Flavor is of apples with some bittering. Not very complex, but not offensive. The fruit flavors developed as the beer warmed. Not bad at all. Good session beer.

ClarkVV (5804) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Best before May 2006 bottle consumed 12/7/05. Orange-tangerine-strawberry colored body, with light copper tinges. White head is pretty well retained, creating minimal lace. Filtered/force carbonated, that sort of thing (same as all shipyards). Aroma has light fruity esters (cherries, prunes, berries) with some vanilla, light toasted malts and light floral hops. Flavor has the same light yeast apparency as most shipyards, light diacetyl buttercream, floral notes from the hops and a crystally, hard tasting maltiness, not terribly complex at all. Light blandish white dough, some saltiness, lots of carbonation, watery texture, medium-light body, no alcohol apparency.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle from dirtymike. Thanks! Pours a rich amber. Aroma is expired hops with an afterthought of sweetness. Flavor is a very sharp, sweet, and doughy malt. Reminds me of a half-done milk shake. Palate is average. Not bad, but not the best.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Good light copper color, small head that vanished quickly. Sweet malt, sweet bitter finish. Strong floral hops, something else i need to explore. Not complex, but not boring.

12 oz bottle. Cloudy copper with a thick looking head. Aroma is floral and fruitty with some dough. Taste is toasty with some sweet orange and caramel. Nothing too exciting.

A nice red that makes you want another to explore the flavor further. Just the right bit of caramel and roast. Medium/light body and enjoyable.
