RobBestwick's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
RobBestwick (967) - Calgary, Alberta, - NOV 15, 2010
Bottled. Malty, nutty aroma. Bronze hue with a good sized, frothy off-white head. Creamy texture with a dry nutty taste and a sweet malt finish.

cmacklin (1310) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2017
500ml can. Pours a clear amber-orange with a thin, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt and bread. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, nuts and light citrus with a metallic note in a mild, bitter grass finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Light copper and some rust. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. Metallic finish like Zeppelin. Bottle.

ANZUShophunter (573) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2016
Rating from old records . From bottle (pre-current label) in shaker. A fairly smooth, malt-driven amber. Easy to drink but would’ve welcomed more hops.

ChadPoole (479) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Both aroma and flavour are malt, carmel and fruit. Nothing special about this beer;  just kind of plain.

bdleedahl (600) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
Very mediocre beer at best. Lacking any decent malt profile for an amber. Not much body to speak of either. It looks nice, but that's about the only positive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PeatyPete (1108) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Amber coloured with off-white head. Malty aroma. Taste is malty, caramel and a bit spicy.

sawyerpc15 (166) - Bowser, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2017 I liked the caramel taste. It was stronger then the red racer copper ale and I liked it better then the Tree cutthroat. I’d buy it again.

ljthiessen (1438) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange-amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is caramel with some cherry notes, red fruit, a little metallic. Flavour is light caramel, slight grassy notes, a little coppery. Pretty light-bodied, a bit thin.

maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Clear light amber pour with medium sized white head. Aroma of malts, grains, slight caramel and metallic notes. Taste of grains, corn, faint caramel malts and hops. Thin bodied, fizzy carbonation, metallic aftertaste.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Can was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white head. Light lacing glazed along the glass. The smell had a semi-roasty nutty to caramel to light toffee about it. The taste copied the smell and bled into a wet caramel aftertaste leading to a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable aspect to it. Slightly mouthy rich nutty notes string along my mouth. Overall, I say this was a good American Amber/Red Ale that I would have again.
