On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Clear amber copper with a wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet and toasty caramel malt. Body starts about average and quite drinkable with a touch of sweet caramel malt and grapefruity hops toward a crisp, bittersweet finish. A decent amber. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2007

on tap-pours a light tan head. Aroma is sweet medium malt-caramel. Taste is smokey, nutty, alcohol, secondary sweet medium malt-caramel. OK carbonation. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Kind of had a sweet yet creamy fruity sweet kool aid thing going on in the flavor. Rich and malty, with alot of chocolate and caramel roastiness. Interesting and somewhat enjoyable, but not something I would seek out to try again.

On tap at the brewpub, 4/13/06: Reddish, sure, but also copper. Very smooth. Lightly sweet. Easy to drink. bit of a sugary feel. Another well made, but uninspired offering here. BeerandBlues2 (13595) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Draught at the brewery. Pours coppery ruby with a patchy white head. Malt (chocolate, cocoa, caramel) and yeast aroma. Malt (meal, grain) and yeast (sweat) flavor. Medium bodied and creamy palate. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Draught - Reddish copper in color, as can be expected. Otherwise it is almost a carbon copy of the Igniter ale, only a tad bit heavier and richer. Still a boring brew. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Clear, with a copper hue and a fire truck shine. Frothy head with tightly packed white bubbles. Extremely sweet-smelling nose. Soft, smooth, and very creamy texture. Malts are thick: caramel sweetness with a chewy malleability, hinted with toffee and chocolate. Desert-like in a way. Unfiltered version: Low carb., smooth, nutty, with burnt-wood flavors along with a hint of smoke. Very subtle sweetness. Somewhat of a dryish finish, most likely from the hops. Thick and decently bodied. Ernest (7723) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Draught. Dark amber/red. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (citrus - grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rudimentary amber ale, but striking red color (befitting the theme of this brewpub).
