3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with citrus and some pine hop notes. Pours amber colored with half a finger of white head with very good retention, but no lacing. Starts with caramel and some bready malt character as well as a bit of citrus. Finishes dry with a pretty sharp pine resiny bitterness that clings to the palate. Pretty good, but doesn’t really remind of a red. More of an amber ale to me.
22oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a white head. Toasted grains with some caramel. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 12, 2017
Pours an amber color with a red hue. Aroma is malty with no true distinction. Taste is a bit bitter with a hay and resin flavor. Dry aftertaste with a slight bitter bite. Overall, light and not complex. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2017
Bottle. Light orange pour with a white head. Caramel, watery, muted hops - this is weak. ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle. Need an apostrophe on the label there, fellas! Nose caramel malt and toast. Pour rich clear amber in the glass with ruby highlights, a large and frothy beige head with yellow overtones. Taste medium-sweet with light bitterness but very nice toastiness; medium caramel with a darker, earthier finish and light citric oils. Faintly floral, classic medium body, has some mild hop bite to match its crispness. Clean and refreshing, if a little common. Well done.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Toasted malts, mild bitterness, and a balanced finish. Not bad.

A lightly hopped, clean, malt driven pale. Some medium bright fruits, caramel sugars, and light bread dough. Medium bodied. Easy drinking. sulawang (1197) - - DEC 31, 2016
Visual: Pours clear brown-amber without much of a head, a thin layer of retention, clusters of steady streams.Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Nose: sweet light toasted barley malt (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: quenching crisp bite
Mid-palate: immediate resiny bitter hops, smooth tingly CO2, (lvl-3-sweetness), bittersweet metallic toasted barley malt
Finish: hints of grassiness, residual grainy dry malt
Summary: Rather simple, short length and quenching mouthfeel - not terribly interesting. A bit above average but not worth seeking out.
18 dec 2016, tap. Red with steady bubbles. Nose is piney hops and red malt. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Mildly piney hops, slightly sweet and malty. Rather bland. djd07 (15547) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2016
