Robust??? well ok but not a big red, however a very good red or what ever a red is supposed to be. That aside this is a very good beer with a spicy finish and a very hoppy beer in comparison to normal reds. Nice structure in malt and great finish!
A deep chestnutty red. All in all it’s a well rounded ale. Pleasant touches of malty sweetness amid nutty, toasty flavor. There is a hefty bitterness which lingers in the finish too. This is some good stuff. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2017
16 oz can. Canned 01/24/17. Thanks Timo A!
Clear amber color with a small off-white head.
Cookies, caramel and sweet hops in the aroma.
The flavor is hops, caramel malt, bitterness and some metal.

Can. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet malts, some toast, earthy hops, mild fruity notes, and a lightly bitter finish. Not bad. mike_77 (6657) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2017

Draft. Hoppy and fresh and bitter, with lots of different fruit notes and a slightly dry finish that’s also just a touch peppery. Rarely is a mainstay offering so interesting and good. Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Pours a couple fingers of head on a clear dark amber body.
Aroma is pine, more pine, grapefruit and pine needles.
Taste is bold grapefruit and pine bitterness, mild spicy finish.
Texture is fairly smooth.
It’s a bold red red and enjoyable. thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Pour is a dark red with a large white head. Aroma is some oily caramel malt with a minor pine hop. Flavor is rich malt which is rather dry. I also get some bitterness with a slight toffee. A decent hoppy amber ale. One of those beers that 25 years ago would have been groundbreaking but now it’s just pleasant but no frills type of beer.

Amber with an off white head - Good malt aroma - Good malt body with some caramel notes and hints of roasted malt - The caramel malt and hints of roast goes into the finish - This was nice
