Reid (2527) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Couple of pints at Game Over arcade in Lincoln City OR $4.50 Typical darker amber colour with a small tan head. Malty aromas..caramel and toffee. Malt forward amber ale here..although there is a wee bit of the floral hop going on in the end. Mouth feel was pretty nice..smooth drinker. A good malty amber for drinking not thinking.

Draft at the brewery. Reddish amber color with a white head. The aroma is weak but nice, caramel but not many hops. Caramel malt flavor, medium sweet, slight bitterness. Not bad. The mouthfeel is very standard. Overall an OK, malt-forward red.

That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Amber pour. I don’t know if it was the smell of the kitchen, or if it was a dirty tap line, but I was getting a weird, unpleasant smoked aroma. Smoked or fishy.

Pours light red. Sweet red caramel malt smell and taste. Pretty balanced flavor and not too sweet or hoppy. Decent red ale, but unremarkable.
