2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma mostly hops with au hint of malts. Pours clear reddish brown with a mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste was all hops. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall, disappointing. It was a one trick pony - one that could only hop.
Deep amber/mahogany color. Tannish head. Aroma is a bit muddled: some pine, a bit of citrus, the slightest caramel. It’s ok. PorterPounder (8358) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
San Antonio, TX - Total Wine & More - The Rim - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, frothy. thick, bone colored head that leaves a nice thick trail of lacing. Aroma has some cherry fruity sweetness, some woody tannic notes. Flavor has some nutty notes, a bit of sweet cherry fruitiness, some light citrus bitterness. Not headed in any real direction. Decently thick mouthfeel. SudsMcDuff (8541) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Thought this was an IPA, and thought it was tame, but half way through I find out it’s an amber, and a very solid one .. . Red malts, pine, seed shells, and sweet crust resin .. . Good amber ale, if that’s your bag .. . . I should buy a machete. dlihcsnatas (819) - Temple, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Beautiful looking brew. Dark red with nice head but that is about all it had to offer. There is a slight aroma of toffee mixed with something like soap maybe... Just not a "I wanna drink this" aroma. The taste is like most of the brews that was something good messed up by adding more hops. Can tell there is a wonderfully good malt background but then it was killed by massive hops. Not even sure what to say about the hops... citrus, pine, ???? just is not right. Just 5 more to go and that will be the last of that for me.

Tap at Craft Pride. This in is a little off in hard to describe ways. Malt and bitterness do not combine well. A little harsh.

Pours a coppery reddish color with off-white head. Slight pine, grass, and some malt notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with grass and malt. ZacM612 (869) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Dark reddish brown, slightly hazy with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, some hops. Malty flavor with a little citrus and bitterness in the finish. Okay. mmmbeer (1433) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent brown/maroon color. Very light carbonation, wafer thin white head with several frog eyes upon the liquid surface. Aroma of malt and refined sugar. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt isn’t soaked in caramel which is highly refreshing, some hops in the middle, finish is lightly acidic with a little sweetness. It’s ok. ericwill99 (95) - Texas, USA - APR 19, 2015
A little bitter, and a little sweet, which is a nice combination for me. Low in carbonation, it's very easy to drink. It's a beautiful ruby red, but I don't really taste much malt. KamGoPro (228) - Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Sweet molasses and gain nose. Dark brown pour. Roasted malts, sweet molasses and light leafy hops that hints of ipa on end.
