Red with no head. Smells malty like horse feed. Medium bitterness redeems it a bit. Its ok because its not too sweet. jhamp9 (1864) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Clear deep dark red brown pour with a light beige head. Aroma is earthy, tea, and sweet caramel. Taste follows the nose with some additional vegetal notes and toast. Medium body. rougeau13 (3015) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2016
Can from Kroger. Dark reddish-brownish-amber with a small off-white head. Fairly weak aroma of caramel, toast, citrus, and earth. The taste is herbal and toasty, fairly bitter, and lightly sweet. Slick, thin, medium bodied and very lightly carbonated. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Can. Pours a hazy deep red/maroon with a shallow, lacy, pitted, off-white fine-grained head. Nose of dark fruit, spice, and a little booziness. Roast nuts and black tea up front, then a mild caramel sweetness kicks in; some hops spiciness, but not much pronounced hops except on the very back of the tongue. Most of the hops are citrus pith and herbal; some pine and spruce, some rosemary, a touch of sage. Finish is ashy and bitter, with earthy notes; no sweetness on the finish. It’s interesting, and it drinks easy, but it looks like it should carry more fruit than it does.

12 oz. can (from Texas Micro 10 pack) served in a tumbler- poured a somewhat transparent brown with maroon tint when held to a light source, very light carbonation to the point where it’s almost flat, liquid sits very still in the vessel. Aroma of cheap booze, resin, and earth. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt was soaked in caramel and alot of it just sits on the palate during the tasting, middle has some heat to it, finish has a light hop burn to it. All over the map with this one- meh ok. onceblind (9688) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Clear deep Amber with a thin off white cap. Lots of boozy amber malts on the nose with some carabiscut and rich honey and a little citrus bitterness and a bit of bitter leafy fresh hops. Dark caramelly honey flavor with a smooth malty body, with a bitter orange rind balance. As a whole it’s more amber malty and a touch boozy and lacks a bit of hoppy balance but it’s a nice evening sipper. djd07 (14521) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Rockwell. Pours a cloudy amber with small off white head. The aroma is earthy hop and caramel. Thin mouth, sweet malt, light toffee with toasted finish, decent. dfinney23 (3273) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Pours deep copper a thin tan head. Sweet caramel and toffee balanced by resin and grapefruit bitterness. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Tap. The look is clear, very bright red, with a decent lacing beige colored head. The smell is. The taste is juicy fruit candies, hops, caramel malts, sweet, toast, and ok.
