Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Cider and toffee aroma with some floral hop. Pours clear copper with a fizzy tan head. Decidely sweet. Again with strong toffee and apple character. Some bitterness on the finish. Thin body. A little cloying.

This beer pours a red amber with nice a head. There is a strong taste at first but then balances out. The after taste feels sweet. A very tasty amber ale.

annunz123 (809) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Malty, nutty aroma with a little skunk. Flavor is malty and nutty and unfortunately slightly skunked, with some bittering hops in the finish. Decent but pretty standard red ale.

JulienHuxley (2543) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber pour with thin white head. Aroma is malty, quite a bit of caramel, light oxidation notes, peppery hops. Taste is sweet, malty/caramel with a decent bitter finish. Pretty typical american amber. Decent.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep clear amber color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is vaguely roasty, sweet, somewhat nutty and bready. Flavor is much the same, with a nice pale malt sweetness, touched with a bit of roasty bittersweetness and breadiness. Body is a little thin, with moderate carbonation.

BMMillsy (1150) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2013
Beer of the month club. Pours a pretty red color with small quickly receding head. Sweet fruit aroma with lits of malt and a bit of a buttery tone. Flavor is malty sweet up front, followed by buttery floral taste, and ends with some bitter. A little metallic flavor takes away from things. Easy drinking with plenty of carbonation. Ok beer, but nothing I would seek out.

VALIS (210) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Slightly sweet grain/corn scent, clear copper color. Taste is neutral, a bit crisp and gassy, slight bit of sweetness, spice, malt. Not bad, just plain.

Average all around. Mild aroma and flavors. Good beer but nothing to special.

johnnnniee (2042) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pours a clear golden garnet color with a huge fluffy off white head that slowly dissipates and laces on the way down. Smells of caramel, mineral, and a bit of earth and spice with a hint of butter. the flavor is quite malty with caramel being the dominant taste. Earth, tart, and butter provide a bit of counter to the malty sweetness, but this one really leans to the malty side. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. A buttery malt bomb how shipyard-ish. OK for what it is, but there are better red ales out there.
