My sister refers to this beer as "liquid crack". That’s about right. A dangerously easy beer to drink. Nothing real fancy about it. Decent red appearance, not much aroma, light on the palate, and a pretty good taste. It is, however, much better on tap.

Used to be one of the better beers before craft beers happened. But That was a long time ago. Now it is one of the more boring ones out there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Red style beers have not been my favorites lately. When I first got into craft beers they were delicious but I am not enjoying them at all. This is just ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From old tasting notes. Nice copper red color with a medium tan head. Mildly sweet toasted malt aroma. Sweet toasted malt flavor fades quickly and becomes salty, then gassy. Light dry finish and aftertaste. Thin and watery.

Medium amber color with medium head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts. Smooth and doughy on the palate. Taste: mostly corn, grass, and malt. A step above typical adjunct lagers, but nothing special.

Rich, clear amber to copper color with a short-lived head of white foam. Traces of dried dark fruits and caramel malt overall. SOme dry grain and sweet floral and honey characters dancing around.

Bottle at Max’s Diner in Buffalo, after Mr. Gugino’s funeral :( Clean grainy aroma. A very nice red lager, sweet malts, grassy hops, not much complexity, but really drinkable.

Un bon ensemble pour une rousse mais un certain manque d’arôme, c’est dommage.
