Bottle from drinkstore. Pours ruby red with tan foam head. Resionous spruce aroma with nuts. Sweet biscuit with a dry medium bitter finish. Wood earth dry finish. Light body but pretty tasty. SinH4 (6113) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2014
Cloudy amber color with small head. Smell is caramel malts, typical red ale, and piney-resinous hops. Taste is caramelly and with a nice bitter finish. Nice hoppy red ale! King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Amber red color. Creamy taste of hoppy bitterness especially in the beginning and the aftertaste. A solid body in between. anstei (2510) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 650ml bottle from Erzbierschof. Beautiful red ale, slightly oily characteristics, with a bitter finish. Oh, and that finish. I find it hard to describe but I never had any beer with a finish like that. And I like it. Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
This is an extremely hop forward beer. Listed as an amber, this is more like an ipa. Bitter hoppy finish. Poured copper in color with a white head.

I really enjoy this when offered on tap. Nice malty pine aroma, malt heavy flavor backed by ample amounts of piney reisinous hops. Caramel toffe some fruitiness. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
"pretty solid...considerably better than american amber from Rogue, great malt set-up and bitter finish...not as aromatic as i’d like, but worth a try. too expensive for a 3.7." eduardovl (1467) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a copper amber color. A bit cloudy. Forms a huge creamy and soapy beige head that leaves tons of lacings in the glass. Head is creamy and solid and never disappears
S: Sweet caramel malts upfront. Strong American herby, flowery and a bit piny hops. A bit fruity too
T: Slightly sweet upfont. Strong notes of crystal and caramel malts. A bit metallic sensation. Very smooth in the mouth. Balanced bitterness. Notes of toffee and bready yeasts
M: Light body. Very good carbonation. Caramel and flowery hops aftertaste
O: Great drinkability. Rogue quality

Less balanced than I would’ve liked, but at least the hop character was tasty. Lots of pine, some light tropical fruit, and a resin finish. guzgorog (916) - FRANCE - SEP 30, 2014
Ambrée/rouge, mousse beige moyenne. Nez de houblons résineux et caramel. Bouche sur les aromes de pins, résine, pamplemousse. Forte amertume, bonne longueur en bouche, carbonation moyenne, corps moyen.
