Amber color, nice thick head. Sweet "red" amber malt smell and taste. Just a bit of caramel. The hops meet up with it and last through the mid body finish. You could drink a few in one sitting without getting tired.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color...pillowy head, though it fades a little fast. Aroma of sweet malt. Front begins with a caramel malt sweetness...somewhat of a crisp mouthfeel, though not overpowering. Sweet malt flavor gradually blends with a subtle hop bite in the back...finish has a slight citrus tang to it. Though very basic in nature, this beer is pretty well balanced.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark reddish orange, something very off in the aroma to me though other wise caramely. It is dryish but has a smokey malt element. Some of the small batch craft brew bandaid taste. Long hoppy finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-amber color with a large orange-tan head. The aroma was light nut, caramel and fruit. The flavor was sour, tangy and nutty with a touch of fruit and some butter on the tangy finish. Eh.

Pours wiht an amber and reddishy color. Very malty flavors profile, a bit of caramel and some earthy notes. Not much hops, but a good food beer. Nice mouthfeel and palate.

Clear red body. Rich, syrupy malt backbone - very sweet with a hefty helping of aromatic hops. Kind of a stale chalkiness that kind of ruins what could be a very decent drink.

Nice amber body with an off white head Sweet corn notes really hurt his beer, both in aroma and flavor. Finish seemed to have some caramel notes, hops were alright.

BoTMC Selection September 2008: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced an amber body with some red highlights, topped by a small head of foam. Aroma is slightly malty though not much there. A fair sweetness to it , sliding on to a slight bitter finish. Crisp carbonation, with a medium body and good mouthfeel.
