Enjoy by date of 02/17/15. Ruh roh, the sooner the better, right?
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy amber/red colored body. A one finger white foamy head dissipated within about a minute leaving some light ringy lacing stringing itself around the glass.
The smell had a fairly big dried out citrus rolling all around in a slight peppery spice.
The taste copied the smell and added a quick dry peppery spiced aftertaste leading to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Iíd say it was appropriately styled.
Overall, Iíd say it was a good Amber/Red. Itís too bad that this is getting retired. Oh well. mr_h (5434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2015
355ml bottle at home, from Good Spirits Company, Glasgow - clear deep amber brown, good beige head, pine and grapefruit in the aroma, good lacing, pine and grapefruit again in the flavour, oily, high carbonation, well balanced Brandon1989 (656) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours a dark amber color with a medium beige head that left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is hops, citrus, grapefruit, and pine. The taste is very similar to the aroma. Up front you pick up the hop bitterness and pine but on the back end you get the citrus and some bready malts. alexsdad06 (10284) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle at home. I canít believe I hadnít rated this yet. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, citrus and resiny hops, mild to moderate bitterness, very good considering the low abv, nice session ale.

Like the name implies, it pours an amber color with off white head. Closer to an IPA I think than an amber ale. Pretty bitter. Theapathyparty (9) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2014 does not count
Hoppy, citrusy aroma, quickly fades to malty, toasty, roasty and caramel scents. Modest off white head settles to a fine layer. Roast, burnt sugar, toasty and caramel flavours are present, with a strong and lasting bitterness. Mild citrus flavour. Retry4z (1) - - DEC 19, 2014 does not count
Ok beer , too hoppy, not impressive. For a red ale, this is not the traditional style, needs more malt.

Bottle. Tastes like pale malt, light grapefruit, light pine hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like pale malt, light pine, and light sweet grapefruit. BeerFunGuy (875) - California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
This beautiful copper colored beer has a citrus aroma. It has a nice robust smokey flavor and some of that big hop flavor stone is known for.
