Ruby is a more fully blown version of the amber style. While beefier than the Firehouse, it contains a deep Ruby color, a powerful nose and a flavor of concord grapes and loads of carame. 2006 National Champion Amber at the USBTC.

22 oz. Hazy copper with a lasting sponge of foam. Sweet, luscious nose of caramel, juicy orange, and spicy florals. Flavor is similar, but thankfully has more resin bitterness for a nice balance. Also some toasted nut, chocolate, and more citrus zest. Medium body is well-balanced, soft, and lightly tingly.

Bomber from Carl. Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with 4 finger foamy creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and mixed fruit - mostly citrus? Med body. Flavor is very smooth dark roast malt, much like an American Strong Ale. Hop is mixed fruit. The malt is too intense for me to imagine concord grape, but maybe that’s in the mix. This is a beer that deserves to go Imperial! While there’s a lot of malt, there’s certainly enough bitter to render this very, very drinkable.

Pony with brend and streetsie. Pour is dark ruby brown. Sweet and lackluster... Malty and finishes quick. Not good for summer but probably better in winter

On tap at Pony with Andy and Streets. Deep red pour with minimal head. Almost non-existant aroma (some sweetness) and sugary, lame palate. Not offensive but not good.

jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2011
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice malty lightly toasted flavor with a quick finish.

dmac (6438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2011
22 oz bomber from Canals Hainesport. Poured a reddish body under a bubbly/foamy off white head. Aroma had some juicy orange notes mixed in with dusty grains and some wet cereal. Flavor of dirty earth and some raw malts. Thin mouthfeel with bubbly carbonation and thankfully a quick fading aftertaste.

pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle, thanks Dmac. Pours out a nice amberish color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of some very light citrus hops and grain. Taste is sweet, sticky malts, oranges light bitterness and some grains. Not bad.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2011
Pour light golden ruby decent creamy beige head. Aroma citrus, pine caramel, grapefruit. Taste bitter, citrus ,caramel, fruity, grapefruit, tangerine. MF medium body decent carb. Solid brew but kind of meh.

ddemmingjr (800) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours reddish, amber with a reasonable, fluffy white head. Caramel malts, interesting funkiness attributable to the grapes, pine, floral hops. Sweet malts favors upfront as an interesting spice hits on the finish. Pretty good.
