Draught at Country Boy. Color is red. Slightly caramel in taste. Decent but not too hoppy in the front. Not an intense red, but very drinkable.

jedflight (4) - Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014 does not count
Very nice biscuity and toasty aromas. Bit of roast adds complexity. Very low hop aroma. Just a touch of grapefruit. Little diacetyl that dissipates fast.
Appearance is more copper than red with significant haze. The head is a nice tawny persistent froth. Good lacing.
The flavor is malt forward with strong caramel and toasty notes. Roast finishes the malt with just enough astringency and burnt character to add complexity. The bitterness is low but balances well. Bit of hop citrus and grapefruit on end.
Overall very smooth. Goes down easy with enough creaminess and smoothness to leave a pleasant finish. Very nice.
Drinking from growler from the Bells General store

On tap at Busters pours a dark reddish/brown with a small khaki head. Upfront hoppy citrus with dusty earthy caramel malts. Taste of light citrus and pine hops with well balanced earthy toffee and caramel malts. Nice balance!

chucklemation (1774) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Pours a copper color with a thin white head and some white lacing. Aroma is subtle floral hops and some light caramel malts. Flavor is caramel and nut, with light bitterness. This began to grow on me the more I sipped it.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Cherryesque aroma. Flavors of sweet citrus with a good maltiness balanced with some bitterness. Somewhat vegetal. Nice palate with a sweetish duration at the end.

MrBunn (2849) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Sample at Eccentric. Pours a nice amber with a medium head and the nose of a fruit basket. Oranges, cherries and apples with a little caramel sweetness that gets added in the flavor.

Drake (14109) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 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.

3.6
jbruner (5402) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a clear amber red on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lacing. Aroma is light, but faint piney hops and caramel and crystal malts. Taste follows, slightly bitter, hoppier than I expected. Pretty nice and easily drinkable.
