Super malty red ale with a nice hopps backbone. Smells malty. Had a sweet finish with a hip bite at the end. Pours copper in color with a white head. A decent beer. Had out of a bottle at home.

1/25/15. On tap at the brewpub. Red pour with a nice khaki head, good lacing. Nice aroma, mild citrus, biscuity, a little caramel. Good flavor, more hop character, citrus, biscuit, a bit of caramel. Tasty! troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2015
[Tap] Reddish amber pour with about a half inch of head on top. Abrasive hoppy aroma. Lighter orange and pine notes. Flavors of resin, pine sap, caramel and some earth. Astringent bitterness in the finish. Hints of booze come through as well. Interesting. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2014
From the 12-oz can this poured a deep amber body, crystal clear, with a bubbly ecru head. Sheets of lace form as the beer is drunk. The aroma is zesty, blended with grapefruit and a fruity caramel from the malt. The taste is fruity, mayhaps an old apple blended with a zest and grapefruit bitterness, not intense, yet stronger than that of some of the so-called IPAs that I’ve had recently. The finish is fairly dry and bitter. This is a repeatable ale. BVery (10485) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Tap at Sheffields. Rich reddish amber pour with a small clingy white head. Mild earthy malts and a citrus note. Not very bitter. Decent.

Maybe just me but a red should be more about the malts than the hops. This one was a bit to hop forward to call a red. A very nice English IPA but not a red.

Mild and pretty sweet. Aroma is musty with a hint of citrus. Picked this up in Columbia, MO in 2014. sawbuck (732) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Citrus hop aroma with hints of orange peel. Red, amber color with a tan head. Creamy semi sweet malt flatvor up front. Minty bitterness from hops next, some tones of citrus and notes of cinammon mixed in. Finishes with a tame bitterness that lingers only for a short time. voyageurmike (435) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Medium head, red brown, medium bitter taste and more bitter, though clean, finish. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Very nice ruby copper and red in color, with aromas of licorice, almonds, and dried stone fruit. First thing upon tasting is the softness of the beer, with a sweet tropical fruit to start and a light pine needle bitterness in the finish. More delicate than expected.
