COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied deep mahogany ale with ruby red highlights. Citrus notes of chamomile, grapefruit and Meyer lemon brighten the aroma. A zesty array of hop flavors from mango and bitter orange to green mint and hibiscus meld with the nutty, roasted caramel and subtle dried fruit flavors of the complex malt profile to create a surprisingly fresh, yet warming example of the style.

This beer has a strong caramel aroma. It is a beautiful amber color with brown undertones. It has a very malty taste at first and finishes somewhat bitter. A good sipping beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle - Deep red pour, tan head, aroma of caramel malt and floral hops. It tastes of caramel malt and assertive, citrus tinged hops bitterness. Quite good.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Brookfield. Clear copper, moderate foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of toffee, caramel, pine, a bit of lemon. The taste is toffee, caramel, pine, lemon. Medium bodied, juicy. Solid, decent.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Deep red in color. I think the hibiscus comment is the most appropriate for the aroma on this beer. Very floral with only hints at caramel or other malts. Body is medium/thin and the finish lacks depth.

A good beer. Nice and strong. I sampled it against two others, a Brown, and an IPA. I went with the IPA for the growler.

Floral aroma. Color is ruby. Taste is caramel dipped in potpourri. Probably the most floral beer I?ve tasted.

12 oz bomber pours a reddish orange amber color with a dense caramel-cream colored head. Aroma is of pine, grass, caramel toffee. Taste is floral caramel with a piney juniper undertone and a long spicy finish. The alcohol is well balanced and the beer is not too dry or astringent in the finish.
