Formerly the Founders Red Ale. It was just good enough, slightly above average.
Poured a dasrk amber color with a large beige colored head. Aroma was grains, nuts and hint of malt. Flavor had some caramel notes with the same grain nutty taste. Moderately dry finish with light bitterness. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle gift from SJ. This is a decent brew. Easy drinking, a bit thin the body for my taste, but the taste is there. Nice notes of hop, nut, candy and caramel malt. Christpuncher (3215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2013

Cloudy amber pour with small head leaving significant lacing. Nice citrus in the aroma. Taste is overwhelmingly bitter more akin to an IPA. Short bitter finish. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Smells of caramel, some fruity hints, resiny. Tastes sweet with caramel and some peppery splashes dominating a bitter finish. SHANER4 (507) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2008
12 oz. bottle - Poured a deep amber color with medium head.

Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits mini tasting and shared by joebrew as Founder’s Red Eye Ale. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thick beige head that has some good retention. Aroma of caramel malt, some flowery hops wit a slight apple/pear character. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of fruity caramel malt, some citrusy hops and a touch of butterscotch. Finish is semi-sweet, dry hop bitterness and a slight fruit aftertaste flavor. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2007
