Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Slightly citrus aroma with maltiness noted. Chocolate hints. A nice balanced aroma. Hazy amber color with a light yellow head. Sweet, malty, hints of smoke, nice light hops to finish. This is very good and easy drinking. Probably the beer I enjoyed most from the festival.
Wow. This is a big, boozy mess of a beer, with aromas of milo, fermented fruit, cherries and biscuits. It's extremely sweet in the mouth, before eventually tapering off with a little mint, pepper and more of that cherry. Urgh, this one is not doing it for me.

This beer is slightly above average so far as red ales go. First time I've had something from Mad River. Decent after taste.

Poured a translucent murky red-brown with a 5mm light tan frothy head/cap that retained well and laced poorly. Carbonation high, slow and fine to coarse. Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Taste is quite sweet caramel, even a bit candied, with moderate levels of spice on the back of the tongue; overall quite malty and with low bitterness. Light to medium body. Clean and soft with moderate sweetness and moderate spiciness on the finish. Easy drinking.

Sampled at a blind tasting with Dr Beer. Pours Darker amber ( oxidized metal color ) around 20 SRM. No real head. Smell is sharp, mild gingerbread-like spices. a distant, fruity undertone. taste is mildly bitter, bit creamy, almost buttery-in a nice way. Assertive bitter touch in the back, aromatic ( raisins and other fruityness ) in the maltyness. caramelly. JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2017
appearance: clear dark amber, with a finger of creamy light tan head. aroma: toasted brown bread, grass, drying hay, toasted nuts, caramel. taste: caramel sweetness, some cola notes, toasted bread and nuts, and a grassy, earthy hop finish that’s just a bit spicy. finish: dry, semi-sweet, clean palate. notes: A good amber or red ale is tremendously under-appreciated these days, but it’s one of my favorite styles when done right. This one was done right. Really nice. Bottle from the Beer of the Month Club.

Deep amber beer with a thin light beige head. Nose of candied almonds, caramel, and stewed prunes. Flavor is sweet, nutty, and rich with toffee, almonds, and figs followed by a slight citrusy bitterness. Medium-bodied, this has a surprising amount of flavor that is pleasantly malt forward. nimbleprop (8922) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2017
