had on tap at the GLBC brew pub, served into a pint glass
a: nice translucent amber color, decent 1/4" head with fair retention, reduces to a light lacing cap
s: crisp grapefruit, slight toasted maltyness
t: nice caramel malt backbone with citrusy hop bitterness, slight piney ness.
m&d: light to medium bodied, well carbonated. Very refreshing
Billed as a red ale, but it’s a little yellow. Refreshing citrus flavor, this tastes like one of the trendier hop varietals but used in a fairly restrained way. Usually brewers like to hammer you with them, so it’s nice to see it used as an accent. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Overall pretty decent amber on tap at brewery as part of sampler cold crisp smooth and overall good BernieLomaxXx (19) - Delaware, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
This is a good one, unfortunately it isn't bottled and is hard to find on tap. So if you see it give it a try, you may not get another chance!

On tap. Pours amber thin tan head. Very mild aroma of caramel and floral. Mild sweet taste, well balanced finish, medium-thin body. Pretty good overall. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
On tap at Great Lakes in July 2009 as part of Christmas in July. Sampled side-by-side with the Christmas Ale. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber color with a bit of a stronger reddish character when light hits the glass. A bit of a light head that dies down a bit too quickly. The nose brings some citrus and pine hops as well as some very lightly-toasted malt with a bit of bread and biscuit. The taste is mostly bready with a small spattering of hops. Good body and slight bitterness; a bit plain, but drinkability is nice.
Serving type: on-tap
