Pours a orangish read with thick white head, lots of lacing at first, but none later. Aroma of mild herbal hops, caramel malt, and slight citrus. Flavor matches but finishes a little dirty.

On tap at the brewpub, Port Huron. Dark orange-brown body, thin dense cream head. Light toasty, caramely nose. Toasty, sweet, caramely body with berries and light diacetyl. Soapy, herbal hops finish with light bitterness. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 10, 2008
A solid ale....with a good balance of hops and malt. Smooth on the front with a crisp finish. jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Why is everyone else rating this so low? I thought it was pretty solid. Nothing over the top, but certainly to complain about. Bitey, nice hop presence. Slightly malty. Good red beer, maybe the batch I had was different than everyone elses.

On tap @ the brewpub in PH...Dark amber-red color with very little head at all. Very little aroma, and the flavor is suprisingly dominated by hops with a a bit of a caramel malt backbone. Almost more reminiscent of a pale ale. Not too bad. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2006
5 oz draught sample at the brewpub, late July 2006. Dark amber-bronze with a touch, a mere wisp of lasting head and some lacing....big diacetyl-full buttery nose with a faint whiff of smoke that helps out a bit....sour, dry, ashy body, very little malt and no hop character, at the finish grows vinegary and cardboardy. Oh yeah I want more. Crockett (1117) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2004
This is probably the same beer as the Rockin Robbin Red ale. I suppose Ed felt left out. Pours amber with a little off white head. Brown sugar and earth in the nose. Cask conditioned? Soft carbonation. Note of coffee and chocolate with toasted nuts. Buttery. Pretty tastey but not all that red.
