Backlog, from notes. On tap @ the brewpub, 11 May 2001. Copper colored. Aroma’s: malts, caramel. Flavor is moderate sweet, malty, with an staring bitterness. Body is light to medium. Moderate bitter finish. Good, but I liked the Centenniale I had afterwards better (but I can’t add it anymore...) KimJohansen (10511) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2010
Clear reddish amber with a medium beige head. Aroma had roasted malt, caramel and spicy hops. Flavour was fairly spicy with roasted malt, caramel and hops that made it slightly dry and bitter. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: A light amber colored pour with a nice fluffy off-white head to it.
S: The aroma is primarily of toasted bread and sweet caramel, but there is a distinct off-note that I’ve noticed in several other red ales.
T: This one opens up with a caramel sweetness along with toasted bread and biscuity malts. There is a touch of floral hops and a mild bitterness.
M: Thin-medium in body with a tingly carbonation.
D: This was much maltier than I prefer in a red/amber ale, but still passable.

On tap at brewpub. Didn’t like the place much. Color was auburn/amber with an off white head. Aroma was pretty weak; maybe caramel. Flavor was quite good for style. Toasted malt, caramel, reddish malt. Ok. Dogbrick (13554) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a clear amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Malty aroma with some caramel and hops. Medium, soft body with a sweet malty character. Notes of caramel and nuts in the background along with a pinch of hops. The finish is sweet and malty with a short aftertaste. Just average overall. jcwattsrugger (12518) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2008
