This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated semi-transparent brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The weak aroma was nutty. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild nutty aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of nutty mild hops and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. wlajwl (6751) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Aroma is complex bread/cereal/wheat. The flavor is similar to the aroma with fruit and a mildly sweet finish. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2015
4oz on tap Twenty Tap. Good caramel, toasty malt, mild spicy malt. Red orange color. Thin white head. Leaves great thicker lace. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of slick, light to moderate strength carbonation. Tasty. I dig it. Solid imperial amber. edgallow (4165) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2014

@ Whitey’s Wine and Liquor / Lawrenceburg IN --- Pleasant aroma of caramel and grapefruit. Very dark cherry, near opaque, thick, solid 1/2" ivory head, waves of lace. Taste is clear caramel malt with light biscuit and maybe a little raisin. The taste grows nicely through the palate, adding assertive hops and some carbonation, but, in this case, hops that blend very well with all that has come before. The finish slowly releases back to malt. A tasty ale. Recommended.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly transparent amberish brown with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells pleasantly sweet and malty with mild notes of candy. Tastes like it smells with a lighter and somewhat dry mouthfeel for the style. Good beer. shigadeyo (3730) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

2/19/2011: NABC Hoosier Daddy Crimson & Creme Common... Aroma: Hoppy, sweet grapefruit; rich caramel. Appearance: Really deep amber color; close to opaque; minimal ring of beige-colored foam. Flavor: Pine, deep caramel; sugary sweetness with a hint of moasses; milk chocolate and hops in the finish; finish falls off quickly. Palate: Medium body; calm and smooth; slightly milky texture. Overall: Another intersting brew! Good beer!
Draught sample (6.6% ABV; 66 IBU) at New Albanian Brewing Company in New Albany, IN. Rating #22 for this beer.
Bottle. Deep amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, strawberry, leafy hops and canned green beans. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Strong grain, vegetable taste combined with a lingering bitterness. Like eating bitter green beans. Not a fan. Patrickctenchi (6561) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours deep red-brown with a craggy, off-white head.
Scent is peppery, toffee malt.
Taste is the same..heavily peppered.
Caramel, but a bitter...doughy..earthy bitter...
Not the greatest offering from New Albanian. Travlr (24319) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Draft at the source. Clear light amber color, small white head. Aroma of caramel and nutella on toast. Taste tesembles old time cream soda, but with better bslance, namely the kick of bitterness at the finish. Nice.
