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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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).
