3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Hamilton’s. Clear medium garnet a one finger light beige head, good retention. Flavor has some mildly bitter chocolates, plenty of toasty malt, not getting much from hops other than the bitterness. Scant sweetness, dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 6 with some alcohol. Smells of bitter toasted grain, lightly husky, as well as a little alcohol. Medium body, light to medium carbonation. OK. It makes sense that this was their first anniversary.
June 19th, 2013 - Green Flash’s American Strong Ale is less a burly, red, crimson ale and more of a sweet and strawberry scented sipper. The nose gets some spice with cinnamon and caramel, but the flavor is shockingly sweet, leading the charge with basketfuls of strawberries and cherries. The palate is medium weight and medium carbonated, which attenuates some of the sugar shock a little but, but this syrupy colored brew is definitely a surprisingly sweet drink. slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014

Floral hop aroma, sweet but burnt malts. Amber color, medium body and light carbonation. There is something kinda offensive in the finish, maybe a dirty tap. baraciisch (3387) - California, USA - SEP 1, 2013

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a reddy brown color without much head. Malty flavors and a strong taste of alcohol that is a little harsh.
Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Sample at Belmont Station. Pours a dark brownish-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, vanilla and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of dark malt, toffee, oaky vanilla and hops. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt aftertaste. Above average overall. ajnepple (7089) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2013
On tap at Mayor of Old Town. The aroma is strong and malty with light earthy hops and light roast. Similar flavor, fairly sweet with some bitter hops. Medium to full body with a creamy thick feel and a boozy finish. Not bad.
