On tap at Old Market, pours a deep dark red with a small white head. Aroma brings out toasted bready malt, light hop resins and toasted caramel. Flavour is robust, with bready malt, hop resins and a rather abrasive astringency on the finish. Nice ambition but it’s rather harsh. Okay. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

On tap@the brewery. Slightly hazy, dark reddish brown body with a dense beige head. Nice, mild aroma of sweet malt, caramel and hops. Flavor is refreshing caramel malt, some chocolate and balanced bitter. Rich and hoppy body, a bit more like a hoppy brown ale than red. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2004
unfiltered dark ruby brown, no head, sticky lacing. like a mild version of the hop on with a little more unbalanced bitterness. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2007

A deep dark reddish color with a slight head. This had a very nice balance and the flavors where very good. A tad of extra hops and the rich flavor was great. I liked this beer I can and would drink another. IndianaRed (4615) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2007
