Cider and toffee aroma with some floral hop. Pours clear copper with a fizzy tan head. Decidely sweet. Again with strong toffee and apple character. Some bitterness on the finish. Thin body. A little cloying.

Has a vanilla cream smell and initial taste, almost like an IBC cream soda. The softness and silky notes common with the red ales comes through quickly, this is normally what turns me off of red ales but it is not too bad here. Not bitter at all. Nice hazy burnt caramel color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Woodstock Inn Brewery in North Woodstock, NH. Clear gold color. A little malty up front and a pale malt finish. Kinda non-descript. Eh.

Yeast your malt aromas. Pours orange with an off-white head with tiny bubbles. Good lacing. Nice sour notes of dried apricots and mild hops. Mild carbonation with a great long astringent finish. Very drinkable.

dlovell2 (2381) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is biscuit malt with fruitiness and floral hops. Flavor is dry biscuit malt with tart berries. Some mineral notes and citrus followes and a citrus, floral, and pine finish. Really enjoyed.

AdamChandler (5208) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Burnt red leather color. Almost no nose except faint hoppiness. It’s strong with a cream/ red ale mix, high bitterness, dense malt profile, faint blackberry, lots of honey. I don’t know much about this one but it’s the most memorable at least for how well melded everything is.

3.1
cheap (6216) - CHINA - JAN 29, 2015
Not really red, more like darker iced tea. Has a slight aroma that I think is unique and somewhat astringent if that’s possible. Unique carries over to the flavors. Almost tart but its not. Yes unques all the way round. Comes across fairly mild for the 5.5 it claims to be. Pretty cool label fer sure. Like able fer sure overall.

Quick3Beers (1516) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a dark reddish amber from a bottle. Nothing much going on here, either in the nose or the flavor, just a kind of yeasty maltiness. Meh.

Smooth and malt like. Red and clear. Smooth and tasty. Full bodied and a treat to drink. Worth a try.
