Draft at lucky lab. Pours reddish copper with minimal head. The aroma has a nice caramel scent, light cocoa maybe. The taste is malty with a sweet caramel, light bitterness on the finish. Unusual but okay. douglas88 (9515) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2013
On tap at Barley and Hops. Pours a deep reddish copper hue with a medium white head. A light nose of malt and fruity hops. The flavor is dry, rich earthy citrus malts, smooth light bitter and fruity hops. Nice. alobar (3864) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pours a reddish amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, and hops. Nice flavor with caramel, hops, and dark fruit. Really nice beer for the style. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2012
Draft at Bocktown event 4/21/12. A more potent red ale. Slightly sweet scent, medium bodied palate with a slightly sticky finish, and a red tinted amber pour. The taste was similar to a brown ale, grains and bread, but had a potent kick to it I haven’t seen in many other reds. Impressive. jb (3311) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Decent fall-like auburn color, but flat looking and no retention or lacing. Very malty nose, not much else. Palate was more of the same but not too sweet, decent session ale. On tap at MacGregors.

Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Tastes and smells of caramel malt. Grainy mouthfeel. Slight hop finish gives it a bit of crispness and makes it sessionable. callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
