Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange color with a bubbly white head that rings the glass. Buttery popcorn nose with some subdued grains. Flavor is buttery and sharply stinging. Not good and has a ton of diacytal.

Sammer (1036) - Plano, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Amber pour from bottle with a thin head. Aroma is maple syrup and wood. Taste is nutty, with hints of caramel and maple syrup. Smooth finish. Not bad at all.

BiddleBrau (938) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2010
amber color with just off-white head. Nose is caramel sweet. Initial taste throws a lot at you; prickly mouth feel, sweet caramel, a hop bite then a dirty finish. It doesn’t really work well together and the aftertaste is off-putting. Palate feels thin. Included in my 2011 beer of the month club - January.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
12oz bottle thanks to Bruno.
Appearance : Clear amber with a small foamy and creamy head. No lacing.
Aroma : Malt and adjunct. Slightly citrusy and quite grainy. Light caramel and toffee. Some herbal hops. Light toffee
Taste : Toffee, malt, weak hops. A bit veggy. Finish rather dry, grainy, notes toffee.
Overall : Not very good. Taste is actually worse than the nose. Finish is rather unpleasant.

hbmason (1087) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2010
12 oz. bottle. I first thought this was a red ale due to its name. It ended up being a not so good amber. Not offensive by any means but not going to win any award either.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Amber w/ head of fine bubbles. Aroma is brown sugar and some hops, with a thick mouthfeel of malty sweetness. Finish malty and bitter.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Pours a deep clear amber color. Aroma is of dust, malts, and a little bark. Flavor is of sweeter malts, caramel, citrus, and some hops. Leaves a sweeter malt aftertaste.

dmac (4007) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2010
12 oz bottle from a coworker. Poured a deep red with a smaller foamy super light beige head. Initial aroma was all malts and grains but as it breathes metallic copper notes dominate. The body is actually quite full and creamy, a little to full for such a mediocre aroma/flavor. Flavor once again is all malts with lots of cereal and grain finished off by some dry toast notes.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2010
12 oz bottle (thanks to Pam). A pretty basic amber here. The pour gave a very minor bubbling white head, a mostly translucent, light body, and amber orange color. Buttery popcorn, mixed cereal grains, hay grass, and light citrus in the aroma. Also, a certain oil-like aspect to the aroma that was slightly off. A fairly carbonated feel upon drinking, and though fairly light on flavor, in could be slightly crisper and easier to drink. Flavor notes of mixed fruit, toasted grains, light caramel, and light herb. A pretty average beer overall.

This is a decent red, probably the best of their beers. Nice malty nose with good creamy malt through the body. Not too heavy, but there’s definitely something there. Finishes light and clean. Good, if not great beer, with a good look and good flavor.
