Pour on tap at the brewery, clear red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, nuts, some grass, slight nutty notes as well. Taste is earth, grass, caramel, nuts, some biscuit, hints of yeasty bread, some slight off flavor almost a trashy note. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2014

Draft to taster at Half Moon. Looks solid; a transparent reddish copper with eggshell lacing. Smells malty with notes of caramel and a bit of grain. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad. shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2013

At last I made my way through the seemingly endless flight of wheat beers and moved on to the rest. This is a solid amber ale that is more interesting than most of the other lighter taps. One or two of these over dinner would be a good start before ticking the heavier drafts.
Aroma / Appearance - The caramel colored body is mostly opaque except for a few stray bands of light. Candy corn, caramel, and molasses are a fall festival in a sample sized glass. For a 6% ABV beer the malt feels heavy.
Flavor / Palate - Creamy from the first sip the texture of the mouthfeel binds together the parts. Caramel, chocolate, and a dash of red licorice are a blend of Twix, Nutella, and Twizzlers in liquid form. The sweet malty finish brightens the palate. Overall this is well rounded and worth a tick.
Tap at brewery. Light caramel malt aroma... almost nothing. Coppery amber with a small off-white head, moderate lacing. Light toast, caramel, and light herbal bitter flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Nothing too special and out of the ordinary here. Aroma is crystal and light chocolate. Appearance is red, light carbonation. Taste is mostly crystal grain, chocolate malt, light hops. A standard, average red alte. Easy drinker though...
