3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Loose single from Binny’s. Finally my first Bridgeport beer, although there are some bombers somewhere in my cellar. I get a big nose of malts and alcohol at the pour, not as much hop. Carola brown pour under a spongy beer head, not much bubble activity in my glass. More hops found in the taste, a kind of slight citrus and slightly "dry" hop note. Or maybe just a standard hop bitterness. Either way, it matches nicely with a slightly spicy malt bill. Texture seems a little light, but it’s leaving sticky traces on my lip, and the alcohol comes in to warm me up on this cold night.
From bottle, the pour is a little cloudy, burnt orange with a thin caramel colored head. The aroma is malty with a little bit of yeast in the nose. The taste is a strong roasted malt, notes of soy sauce, and rye. The finish is bitter more like rye bread Capa (3403) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Pour is a deep copper orange with medium white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Medium syrupy body. Flavor is malty with sweet citrus and some toasted bread. Finish has lingering malt with the bitterness on the side of the tongue. Decent. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2017
A: Dark red bordering on brown. Creme color head. Lacing.
N: Pine, earth, peppercorn, ample grapefruit, rosemary, more herbs, very bready with rye being the most noticeable ’type’. Bit of toffee and caramel character under the very intense hopping.
T: Very bitter with a light sweetness and a good spiciness.
M: Medium-light body, very dry, no alcohol, biting carbonation
O: I can get behind this. Though not in any respect tamed or subtle, it has the kind of blast that goes pretty well with a social gathering. Dervock (1421) - AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2017

I’ve been drinking beers and ales for over 48 years and I love my reds. This is worst red ale I’ve ever tasted. After one taste, I poured a 6 pack down the drain. I tried another Bridgeport product too and I will say I will never buy another, very disappointed. LesArgen (370) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2016
Loads of biscuit, breadcrumbs, caramel and alcohol, plus a little apricot and grapefruit aroma. The taste is quite hoppy, with more biscuit and caramel. The alcohol makes it positively warm the throat, but the finish is marred by a metallic astringency. A shame, because it’s otherwise a lot of fun. crispaire (243) - - AUG 29, 2016
Draft pour on nitro. Normally the beers I’ve tried on nitro are better than their non-nitro versions, but not this time. It was incredibly smooth to drink, but it was to the point that it barely had any carbonation, so it tasted flat. Also in this particular version, while the malts showed through, you could barely taste any hops. bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 8, 2016
