RATINGS: 107   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.11/5   EST. CALORIES: 156   ABV: 5.2%
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This stronger, maltier, and hoppier pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. Cascade dry hopping gives this popular brew a fresh, floral nose.

Just picked this up as the "Red Snapper Amber Ale", but I’m assuming it’s the same beer by the description. It poured nice, but had an overpowering young smell to it. I was afraid it might suffer in taste, but the malt carries through enough to help tone down the green flavors. Unfortunately the hops are not enough to fight the young taste, but it is far from undrinkable.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark red-copper pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, nuts, some toasted bread, hints of spice, some resinous and piney notes in there but focused mainly on the malt. Taste is toasted malts with nuts, caramel, dark sugars into a touch of fruit, hints of bread, some grassy and spicy notes, finishing bitter, dry.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass. A: Toasty caramel flavors with some floral and herbal hops. Nutty aroma with some citrus and a touch of grainy roasts. A: Pours a red amber hue with a thin, white head with good retention and has good lacing. T: Follows the nose, with the nuttiness a bit more pronounced. A distinct roasted character to the malt, more toasted wheat bread than the deeper roast you get with porter and stouts. P: Medium body with average carbonation. O: A little rough and unbalanced, but still a decent session beer.

Not bad. A bit like a brown IPA, rather than red. Pour is more amber, but roasted malt character of a brown. Either way, hops trump malt in this brew.

Bottle. Reddish copper with a huge, beige head. Malty, boozy and soapy aromas. Big malt taste. A lot like a light porter.

chucklemation (1505) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Has a very strange taste to it, like rubber or plastic, that dominated all other flavors. It was difficult to enjoy this beer for that reason.

Bottle pour in a shaker. Drank with a meal of steak and vegetables. Nice balance of hops, malt, bitterness, and nuttiness. Went well with the steak.

burg326 (5402) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a deep amber color with aromas of light caramel, malt, a touch of citrus and some light nuts. Flavor was light caramel and earth, citric acid aftertaste, not what I expected.

Amber colored beer with a big bubbled ivory colored head. Roasted grain nose with some faint smoke. Full flavored beer with strong citrus/grapefruit hops over a light toasted bread/caramel maltiness. There is an almost smoky sense to it. Some fruit, acidity, and a long bitter grapefruit rind finish. this is a solid, creative beer.
