Good overall amber ale. Somewhat of a spiciness to this one, the hops make for a nice smooth finish. Solid beers here.
"another fairly standard entry into this catergory, but it was pleasant enough. decent mix of malts and hops in the nose and flavor, just a little thin. decent overall."

This is a good beer from this brewery. Reminds me of Fat Tire. Decent stuff. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 (on draught at Rock Bottom Arrowhead. Now called Red Ale). Pours a clear amber color with a creamy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aroma has dark pit fruits, caramel and florals. Taste is sweet with some light bitterness. Medium bodied, but watery. Bitter finish. This is an ok beer. ksigty (107) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Not bad, not great. An average red ale. Still better than most of the mass produced garbage on the market. A decent flavor of malt and hops, but it quickly fades. Good for the meal, but that is about it. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Pours amber w/ a good head. Good head retention w/ sticky lacing. Aroma of malty beer. Medium nectar w/ ample residul effers. Theres a defined grapefruit twitch to the malts, almost acidic. Mild caramel fruit. The finish is bittered w/ an acidic component.

On tap in Phoenix, AZ. Clear brown reddish coloured with almost no head. Malty and sweet with a hint og caramel. Fullbodied and refreshing. Bockyhorsey (2627) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Mug. Had a malty presence along with some spice notes. Dark red/brown color body with thin head and some lacing. Flavor was just ordinary with some malty toffee and some mild bitterness. Could of been more refreshing seiing it’s 100 derees now. Aurelius (5437) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2005
Phoenix. Big fruity aroma. Ruby red brown, thin white head. Prunes and wood, bitter without any vegetable hop aspects. Pretty simple and a little disappointing. Not much UK character. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2005
The beer as it sets in the pint glass is a deep ruby to almost brown color with a modest semi-creamy tan head, and the residual lace a concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is lightly floral, with nice grain sweetness, fresh and clean to the senses, start is somewhat sweet, nice grain profile with a fair to middling top. Finish has a stern acidity and the hops pleasantly spicy, quite dry and a nice drinkable bee. As it’s been almost five weeks since I sampled my last beer, it actually tasted great, as I missed my daily hop fix, and this one hit the “B” spot.

Pours wiht an amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note and a little fruit. The flavor is slightly weak with some malt notes and a little more hop showing through. Medium bodied, smooth and dry.
