Hanuta06 (466) - Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2015 Serving: from tap at Via Marina. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: light-to-medium body with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: pretty good, but not memorable.

Rating #1976 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 77 Draught at Taphouse Grill. Nice amber/orange colour with a dcent white/tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is sweet, toffee malt,. Taste is very strong, caramel malt and a hint of toffee/spiced pudding. Bold malt forward amber that is quite drinkable.

Draught at the brewery
Dark amber color, compact head. Dark caramel, not too dry, with a good body strength, a bit dusty.
Decent Amber Ale.

On tap at Big Al, pours a hazy dark amber red with a small beige head. Aroma brings out bready malts and not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, where bready malts and a slight herbal quality. Nothing much going on here. Its okay.

Deep mohagany color. Thin white head. First sip is malty caramel backed by a nice balance of hop bitterness and dryness. Has the slight adjunct corn flavor u might expect in an Irish red. Not malty sweet by any means, this is a dry irish red. Body is medium though and doesnt feel weak at any point. Nice brew, but Ill only have it again if ur buying :)

Draft pour. Dark pour for a lighter beer. Very malty yet rich flavor. Very odd aroma which I am having trouble describing. Overall a very drinkable beer but not too memorable.

Dogbrick (12501) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a mostly clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

luttonm (5567) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft. Heavy rich malt body, dark red caramel brown. Alcohol and sour-alt malting, a bit of a mess. Reminiscent of the big red beer brewed in Serbia, not a great comparison, funky malts, residual sugars and alc bite.

Draft at Magic City Brewfest. Pours a clear amber with a medium-sized off white head. Aroma and flavor were odd. A bit sour with some other off flavors. Im hoping this was a bad keg. But it didnt seem so bad as to be a mis-brew. In any case, definitely didnt strike me as a red ale.
