tap - Pours hazy amber and smells of lightly toasted caramel malt. It tastes of sweet caramel malt with some good, mild hops bitterness. Light to medium bodied, it’s a solid session brew. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

Served on draft at Beer Run as part of a small Bells tap takeover. Pours a hazy reddish-amber color with a medium frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of earthy, floral and citrus hops with toffee and caramel malts. The taste is bitter earthy hops and toffeeish malts. Medium bodied. Very drinkable. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2011

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery tasting room. A hoppy red that’s a very decent and interesting beer. A reddish tinge. Good malt backbone.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe this past weekend.
Pours a clear amber with a good off-white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some light bread crust as well as a bit of caramel. Light citrus and earthy hops. Flavor is fairly similar with the malt shining for the most part, though it’s hoppier than your standard amber (excluding India Red Ales). Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat chewy with a semi-dry finish and mild bitterness. Good, not great. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2011
