Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Thomas Creek brewery in Greenville, SC. The appearance is a reddish orange color with a small white head. The aroma is slight malt and grains. The taste is toasted malt and is slightly bitter.

Appearance: Pours a clear, coppery body the hue of a somewhat used (but abused) penny. Two fingers of slowly settling, whitish froth. Adequate lacing.
Smell: Sweet-scented caramel, though light, paired with even lighter hints of fruit and zestful herbs.
Taste: Lightly bready, caramel edged maltiness with a fair amount of pleasing initial sweetness. Faint, faint nuttiness as the malts roll around the palate for a few sips. Hint of baked spiced apple as the fruitiness comingles with the lightly spicy, scantly herbaceous hops. Low bitterness. Drying, malty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Reasonably smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: Good drinkability here, the Red Ale does a fine job at just simply being a Red Ale. Though the label states the beer as being 6.2%, I’d prefer the 5-something listed here on the site, to keep things even more easily drinkable.
Very drinkable. Great with burgers and cookout fare. The aroma is a slightly sweet caramelly toast. the beer is a copper with a slight white head. The taste is clean toasty with a medium floral hop presence. Clean and crisp medium bodied. Great.

Poured a nice amber colour. Thin head. Malty nose. Wonderful mouthfeel with a strong malt back bone. Cybercat (5887) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Color is a nice cloudy golden amber. Aroma is rich and malty, rather jazzy and lively. Flavor is very much like the aroma - mostly malty, with a hint of hop bitterness, plenty of zing and sass. This is a satisfying ale, not spectacular but definitely a delight. SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2004
This starts out with a nice, clean, bready aroma. The sweet malt taste is balanced with a touch of acidity. Good sweet finish. changxao (104) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Pours a cloudy, orange-red amber, with a relatively small head. Aroma is sweet malt with a mild aroma of hops, leaves some lacing. Full body with a mildly sweet flavor, mostly malt, but has some faint fruit hints. The finish is somewhat dry, with a little hops. Overall a very good red ale. ganache (5955) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle. Toast, lightly nutty grain, a little roast in with twangy acidity and light citrus under the dust. A pretty amber-red pour, lightly graded, with a big pillowy and rocky tan head. Beautiful. Taste is lightly bittersweet, dries out a touch, with bread and fruity notes on the rise, has a nice lip-smacking juiciness in the middle, just beyond the mealy grain. Medium, malt-forward body, has levels and waves, but with consistent crisp carbonation and refined hop-prickle toward the back end. Liked it a lot, a lot more than everyone else here, it seems.
