Bottled. Hoppy for a red, nice bitter bite and finish, on top of traditional red malts. Good if in a mood for something bitter. I like it. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 18, 2006
A medium orange colored body with a light khaki colored head. The aroma had some sweet walnuts and some vanilla. There is a bit of ginger bread in here. Interesting aroma. The taste is a bit of ginger bread with some light pancakes. There is a light peanut finish. The body is thin and a it is easy drinking. A little sharp on the carbonation.

Loose bottle from Sam’s Wines, Downers Grove, Bottled Dec. 05. Pours a bi-i-i-t too much head into a narrow glass. Sweet malty smell underneath as it settles. Head does assume interesting patterns as I pour a little more in. Beer itself looks rather pale even as ambers go. Taste, though, comes across a bit thin and watery. Any expectation of malt I had were let down here. Something of grape or apple juice comes out, perhaps it finished a bit dry. Hop bitterness is nondescript.

Darker amber with a small head and stringy lace. Caramel nose with a some bitter and citrus notes. Good dose of caramel malts in the flavor with some bitter hops. Malty finish. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear orange color with thin white head. Not much nose other than a combination of subdued malt and sprucy hops. Aroma belies the flavor, which is a pleasantly well balanced ensemble of malty caramel and fruity, flowery hops. Pretty good.

Draught at Beer on the Pier Chicago. Malt liquor aroma. Slightly hazy light amber with a a good-sized off-white head. Attractive. Doughy malt flavor that is pretty thin. Fairly non-descript beer; very average. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2006
A tannish amber color with medium froth and ample residual effers. It’s a very tasty brew of medium nectar weight. Nothing really definable other than it’s smooth and flavorful drinkability. Crisp and refreshing. No skunkiness at all. Overall; a good everyday brew. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bring tattooed with skulls and Grim Reapers, I love the labels SKA uses. The beer inside, however, isn’t always as agreeable. This poured amber with a small white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma was somewhat sweet, fruity, mild hops. Had a nice bitterness to it but wasn’t anything special. Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Plain red ale. Poured light red with no head or lacing. Not much taste!
Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2006
On tap: Nice creamy beige head, but that’s the highlight of this uninspured ale. Thin with light, sweet malts and a slight taste of cherries, it fizzles out completely on a watery note.
