12oz bottle (best by: 5/16/12). Clear orange color, a good thin cream-colored head, leaving good lace. A lighter, crisp carbonation. Nice and dry, good texture. A hoppy red, basically. Nice, spiced hop aroma. Nice sweet and spicy taste, slight bitter. A decent enough beer, but it leaves me wanting something more out of it. I’ll take an imperial version, please beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle pours a deep amber with a thin off white head. Scent is pine, bread and caramel. Taste is caramel, tea and citrus. BREWMUSKCLES (2698) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2012
grapefruit hoppy and a bit sweet with vine and flowers. malty and a bit bready with a lingering sugary hop finish. creamy head and a little yeast to this red ale, making it seem a touch toasty. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Poured a light copper. Thin body but a big hops bite. Very bitter and not very balanced but a good easy drinking brew. Feels more like an IPA than a pale lager. Nice little bump in the alcohol content also. bhensonb (15345) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt with mild citrus hop. Med body. Flavor is slightly spicy/citrus hop over some refreshing (?) roast malt. It’s decently hoppy, but not particularly bitter. It does fit the winter beer thing.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep amber/copper with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel and bready malts. Flavor about the same, with more hops than many pale ales. Average texture. Not a bad beer. edgallow (4218) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2013
12 oz bottle pours deep amber with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, pine and a hint of citrus. Taste is sweet caramel malts and the right amount of bitterness.

Bottle. Pungent hoppy nose with a little citrus and some nice, slightly spicy malt. Touch of dough. Very fresh! Deep orange body leaning toward red, rocky tannish head. As for taste, light bitterness amplified in such a dry environment, hard water, touch of dough and faint caramel, hops are woody into the aftertaste and a have an aged/musty bit of pungency to them (but not really any citrus). Thin body a touch over watery but stable. Interesting blend of flavors, reminds a little of an Irish Red that seems to fall partially outside of the categories of this site. mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Pours a golden amber color with a white head that disipates leaving little to no lacing. Aromas of honey and hops. Flavors of hops and a bit of sweetness with a bit of citrus. A pleasant beer that is easy to drink as a session beer. vlan1 (219) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2013
On draft @ Stoudts. Pours a dark clear Red/Amber color. Very thin but very persistent head that left lots of lace. Solid malty a solid if not somewhat flat malt backbone with some resinous and citrus. Crisp mouthfeel. Good beer but not Stoudt’s best.
