Clear, medium amber/orange body with a very foamy light tan head. Initial aromas of charred malt/wood and light rubber mat. Nice full medium dark roasted malt flavor with a slight charred edge to it. Dry and lightly sweet with a very light molasses flavor. In that dryness is bitterness, but it’s hard to distinguish how much it dark roasted grain and how much is hops. Definitely a dry leaf, charred wood bitterness overall. That bitterness stays behind deliciously along with a bit of caramel sweetness. This reminds me (I think) of one of the first red ales I ever tried, Red Seal from North Coast, although it’s been so long I’d have to try it again to confirm. In any case, this is a very tasty red ale with lots of character which in my experience is often lacking in this category. slowrunner77 (12159) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Deep amber. Aroma hoppy and malty...citrus pith, pine, earthy, caramel and light fruit. Fairly bitter and a touch sweet. Decent body for a red. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Growler thanks to Tim, pours ruby red with a thin tan head. Aroma is bread through and through. Really deep malty nose. Flavor is big toast and bread with a light citrus finish. Well balanced. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013

On tap at Hangar 24 Brewery in Redlands. Served in a pint glass, this brew had a nice reddish copper color with a thin white head. Aroma was citrus and fresh bread. Taste was a bit malty with a nice crisp citrus hop finish that left a little bitterness. Easy to drink red ale.
