Campbell, 31/08/12. Slim-lidded bronze. Brown toast and marzipan aroma; red apple hints. Could almost be Abbot; cherry boiled sweet and chocolate streaks, orange wine gum. Good dull generic red/brown brew.
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 1/2016 calling this one "The Incline" in the Pittsburgh location+++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel-red color with a large creamy off white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was caramel, fairly strong pine and moderate grapefruit. The flavor was nutty and bitter with light caramel, pine and grapefruit. The finish was long with caramel and grapefruit lingering. Medium body. Solid for what it is. AirForceHops (7693) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Draft in Minneapolis Airport brewpub. Mostly clear dark Amber color, weak legs of lacing. Aroma is light herbal and citrus hops. Amber ales almost never get me excited. This is no exception. Base of the beer is caramel malts. Hops come in with light citrus and notes of earth herbalness. Body is thin with a very light bitterness. Way to.much caramel without enough hop punch. It is brewed for the masses and it shows.

On tap at Rock Bottom Denver. Amber and clear appearance with a small diminishing white head. Mild aroma of toasted malts, citrus fruit, earthy hops and bread. Bland flavor adds light caramel and a touch of pepper/spice. Light thin body. No thanks. RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
On tap at the Desert Ridge, AZ brew pub. Comes a light amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and citrus. Taste is caramel malt, dark fruit, and citrus. Decent. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Tap, Seattle. Pours a clear dark copper to reddish body with a small foamy off-white head. Very light nose, some Cheerio-like cereal grain with some husky and grainy notes. The flavor is pretty bland and boring with some light husky toasted malt, minimal to no hops, save for a bit on the late finish. Light bodied with watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Some lingering grainy maltiness. Pretty boring stuff. berkshirejohn (6614) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA. Reddish amber with a tight white head; the aroma is hidden by the incredibly low temperature at which this is served; in the mouth there are lots of fruity berries and some dry grains, before a dry finish. I was expecting an Irish style Red Ale - which this definitely isn’t - but it was a pleasant surprise.
