Clear red??? Mine was cloudy brown, with small tan head. Good malt nose promises more than the brew delivers. Light sweet malt flavor with very mild hopping

Bought this because it was on clearance at BevMo. Didnt smell like much, sort of chocalatey I guess. Flavor is of caramel, toffee maybe some chocaolate, and a sort of musty, earthy flavor. Not bad, gives a nice warmth to the belly.

Bottle from first batch into my local market. Pleasing clear red-amber color. The head is active, but quickly fades without much lacing. The foundation in this beer has a lot of potential, malt and hop-wise. It just needs more power for a winter brew. Complete this recipe, Big Sky--I double-dog dare ya.

If you expecting a real English Strong Ale make sure you pass this one by. I thought the beer was more fruity tasting than bitter. I didnt mind the beer, but maybe it would play better in the summer. Not bad, just not real good either.

Nice fruity, citrus, hops, and brown sugar aroma. Amber pour with an okay off-white head. Flavors of hops, fruit, and some caramel. Kind of metallic. Fairly thin mouthfeel.

Bottled. Pours deep amber with a ruby hue and a light brown head. Aroma is bread and malt. Flavor is creamy nuts! Some roasted bread, and pretty strong malt body.

Bottle, Some malts, a bit metallic aroma, pours a dark amber with a tan head. Nice malty flavor light hops and a touch of spiciness. Pretty good, as are most of their brews.

12oz bottle.. typical mahoghany color of a English strong ale.. but lacks the bitter punch.. cinnamon hops and biscuit malts lead the way but not much else in terms of a good finish.. just okay.. wheres the bitter hoppy overtones?????

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a lightly hazy ruby amber with a smaller bubbly tan head. Aroma of caramel, tobacco, some dark fruits, molasses and nuts. Flavor of toffee, nuts, toasty, dried fruits, some light citrus...but mostly malty and sweet.
