Red copper with an off white head. Toasted malt aroma and taste but some odd light tart edges.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Amber and clear appearance with a beige head. Aroma and flavor of darker malts, caramel, toffee, fruit, light smoke, light bitterness and light malty sweetness. drjay44 (3710) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Taster at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a medium white head over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 13) body......nose is toffee/caramel, light smoke....taste is toffee/caramel, light smoke, with a light bitter finish, and hints of burnt sugars.....mouth feel medium, minimally astringent, carbonation adds light acid. This is a nice balanced variation on a common style. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7 brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 8, 2013
On tap @ Wild Woods. Amber pour with a white head. Weird feet aroma. Sweet caramel, dirt, and earthy hops. Really something off about the nose. Flavor is dirt, bread, and toast. Strong earth, smoke, and grass. Did not like this. bubbleflubber (2227) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at Wild Woods Brewing, this pours a clear deep amber with a ring of suds. The nose is of grain and hay. Flavors of smoked caramel, some yeasty esters, lemony citrus and finishes with a smoked estery malt that curtails with a balancing bitter. The mouthfeel was round and smooth with a medium body and soft carbonation. Nice effort here from a great microbrewery.

Tap @ Wild Woods Brewery. Pours a fairly clear, red-orange appearance with an off white head. The smoked malts show up a bit in the aroma but very little in the flavor. Some decent toasty, caramel malty notes in there. Eh, ok. Drinkable. 3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2012
sweet red apple and maraschino cherry crystal malt with heavy touches of honey / fruit melanoidin. syrupy and flabby. very basic with nothing redeeming and the smoked malt is basically nonexistent.
