The true session beer with lots of "red magic" going on. This is a well-balanced, medium-bodied beer with a moderately sweet malt aroma brewed with five different malts and balanced by a subtle hop flavour.

This truly has red magic and you get hit with all five malts. Pours a bubbly hazy amber with a little bubbly head. Wicked aroma of caramel malts, toffee, and brown sugar. Tastes of caramel, toffee, malt tea, and brow bread. Had a medium smooth body with average carbonation and just felt a little watery at times, but everything else is bang on.

Dammmmmmm son! Surpirsed as heck by this, not because it was in a can, not because its possibly North Americas most ambiguous style but because the can was all dented! Anyhow, this is what a Red Ale should taste like if I may opine as such. A tad light in colour but still red with a light beige head. Notes of honey, caramel, walnuts, brown bread, cigars and light herbal hops play magical musicals to the nostrils. The taste is all of that, sweet up front and finishing bitter but leaving the malty goodness lingering. So fresh and amazingly good mouthfeel, chewy and medium soft carboation with a rich silky smooth body. Hook me up with a dozen to session....smiles!

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2008
Reddish-brown with a thick, low head. Very fresh pale malt nose shows only slight caramel and breadcrust. Slightly sweet accent with a kiss of chocolate, light toast, and a subtle earthy hop underpinning. Slightly watery finish increases refreshment value.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Clear, deep dark amber with thick beige head. Fresh dark malts, earthy and unbelievably fresh aroma. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation. Gorgeously fresh, like drinking in the earth’s freshly sown barley. Super intense grain flavors with no flaws. Solid and smooth and incredibly well-made.

[1833-20081101] Tap. Fresh doughy yeast bread mild plastic aroma. Clear, red amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and nice thick lacing. Thick yeasty dough flavour with a rough malty finish. Medium body has a slightly tangy finish. Quite enjoyable, interesting yeast characteristics.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Pint in Port Williams. Again another beer with a faint aroma. Red amber in colour with a decent head clinging to the glass. Smooth texture. Decent red ale style, slight hint of hops. Flavour doesnt really blow you away but seems a good quality ale. Re rate, this beer is fantastic, the hops give it a great bitterness that is well balanced throughout the ale. Great stuff.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at the Port Pub, sampled 10/4/08. Red amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy off-white head. Caramel, light bodied, citrus, and fruity aroma. Caramel and bready malts with a citrusy and lightyl earthy bitter finish. Medium bodied, juicy but firm mouthfeel. Like the rest of the lineup, this isnt your average brewpub Amber.

Can from the brewery. Some malty aroma, medium bodied red amber. Malt flavor up front followed by hops in the end. Very enjoyable.

2008-11-01. Dark copper-amber body with a nice creamy beige head leaves good lace behind. (3+) Sweet aroma, fruit, light yeast, dust sweet caramel malt. Flavour has a creamy fruit character that is probably largely the yeast. Makes me briefly think diacytl/caramel but I dont think it is per se, pleasant. Light bitterness shows up near the end but the lasting impression is sweet fruit. Smooth average plus palate. Decent. <i>On tap at Port Pub, as Mojo Red.</i>

1L bottle. frothy head and decent carbonation with a cloudy but red colour. malted and slightly roasted having a real fruit character as well. palate is medium bodied, having a bitter flavour that is balanced by a slight sweetness. Overall a decent everyday red ale.
