Draught at the Charlotte, NC Rock Bottom location. Orange color with thin off white head. Malty molasses and citrus hop aromas with similar flavors that are accented by raisin and dried cherry undertones. Finish is slightly bitter. Nuffield (4245) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Much hoppier profile than either their IPA or Pale Ale. Vivid red color, clinging white head. Whiff of grapefruit and body odor (in a good way). It’s good to let this sit to let the carbonation out a bit, as it is tingling too much at first. Significant malt balance, not exactly as caramel; stickiness with a grassy finish from the hops.

Draught in Nashville. Pours amber with a small frothy white head and spotty lacing. Fruity hop, pine and caramel malt aroma, medium roasted. Hoppy pine and citrus flavor, caramel malt with a medium acidity. Medium bodied and fizzy palate. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2005

Draught @ Brewpub (Disney): This one pours a good reddish-amber color. It had a bit of a head to it. The aroma was decent enough, with some roasted malt and a hint of hop spiciness. The taste is pretty decent, with a touch of roastiness and maltiness. A fairly good balance between them. Unexciting, but a good beer for an intro to crafts.

On tap Big River Nashville.
Deep red bodied beer with a thin head.
Hop aroma is there but not too overdone.
Just enough hops in the flavor to be a drinkable brew although this is average all the way. To endure service as bad as I experienced, the beer will have to be much better. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Draught (atlanta). Red-brown color, medium head. Aroma is good and malty. Flavor is chocolate and caramel, well-balanced, and hoppy. Hop flavor in aftertaste. Easily the best one inthe Atlanta RB brew-pub. KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Nashville. Pretty! Smells good! Fairly hoppy, but not as metallic as the rest of their beers (but still kinda). ericnixon (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2005
On tap in Nashville. A nice red color. Smooth mouthfeel with a light hoppyness and an additional citrus bite to it. It had that same metallic aftertaste that all of their beers had tonight. When the bartender foudn out I was on Ratebeer, he brought out an additional sampler of this from "the engine" instead of the tap. That second sampler was much nicer, with a hugely smoother and creamier quality, and none of that metallic taste. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Hazy auburn topped with a good white head. Carmel malt aromas mostly, with some hops thrown in. Starts off pretty sweet with strong malts and a good balance of flowery hops. Long, bitter finish. Pretty good.
