Dark red, lots of lace, well malted down,caramel, and noticeable malty aroma. Lots of different malt and hops and fresh and refreshing. Sweet aftertaste, but not cloying. Easy mouthfeel, good transition suggestion. Would keep this around as a standard in my fridge.

On-tap at the brewpub.
Huh, well they call it a red, but this looks more like a light amber a la pale ale. The taste isn't too far off for an amber/red, but it reminded me of Middle Ages's Grail Ale, a ringwood amber. It had creamy, sweet caramel malts, without any sharp crystal malts or hops. Really there aren't any hops going on, but that's ok. It tastes ok and is pretty drinkable. Worth trying if you stop in Grizzly Peak.

On tap at the brewpub - Dec 20, 2007. Light grain and brown sugar aroma. Faint. Pours a mostly clear ruddied amber. Head of off-white. Flavor is a light, thin dry grain sugar and fusel nips. Hops show as gummy in the backstretch. A really underwhelming red ale.

A - Red beer with a little bit of yellow on the edges. Off-white head that left some fat lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Caramel malts, little watered down.
T - Taste is a very boring and straight forward red that is a touch lacking in flavor. Basically just a red beer with caramel malts. Has a slightly fruity finish on the end that is nice.
M - Medium bodied, lower carbonation.
O - Boring beer, wouldn't get this one again, but it doesn't taste bad.

This is one of the better made brews that Grizzly kick's out. Poured out to a great red/amber color, with a touch of a creamy head and minimal lacing around the glass. The smell was nearly mute, with only hints of malt and hops being noted. Flavor was quite good, with a slightly robust malt and floral character blended with mild sweetness. Nice. Mouthfeel was similar to a well crafted lager on the flat side. Lower carbonation was responsible for most of the smooth and velvet like mouthfeel, but a touch more wouldn't have hurted this brew. Good drinkability, I could pound this for a session beer without hesitation. Recommended.

Undated 12oz purchased at Village Corner in Ann Arbor. "Brewed and bottled for Grizzly Peak Brewing Co. by Jolly Pumkin Artisan Ales LLC, Dexter Michigan". The label goes on further to state," Five malts are used in brewing this wonderfully drinkable British style ale. A careful blend of caramel malts lends smoothness, and gentle hints of roasted malt in the finish."
Clear dark amber under an inch of vanilla. The head falls to a layer of foam in a couple minutes yet it clings to the pint glass and leaves lots of wispy lace.
For all the talk of malts on the label, this has quite a bit of hop aroma. Cascade? There's also a slight tartness in the back. Faint, but its there. Is this gonna have some weird Capt. Ron funk like the GP Pale
I found the malts! Good dose of the caramel that is tempered by just enough hop bite. A bit roasty towards the end which is a nice clean finish.
Moderate mouth that fits in nicely per style. I could sip a few of these after tossing a frisbee around the Diag or taking a stroll through the Arb, or maybe even after dropping tons of quarters at Pinball Pete's.

Red/brown color. Perfectly neutral nose. Medium-bodied with berry fruits and the slightest hop bitterness. The balance is fine. The finish exhibits benign, dry, harmonious neutrality. For occasions when an un-challenging, moderately colored beer is required, this is it. Flavor-obsessed beer geeks should avoid this at the risk of being bored.

The deep red color and noticeable caramel malt aroma introduce a fantastic beer. The nice medium body helps bring forth and hold the lingering caramel malt sweetness on the palate and enhance the smoky lager-like finish.

This arrived at our table topped with a creamy, off-white head. Deep red, clear beer. Good head retention and a little lacing was left behind. Mild aroma overall, some caramel and a bit of hop. Sweet and malty with low bitterness. There's a restrained citrus hop flavour that adds a bit of depth to the character. Short, clean finish. Medium to light body with a smooth, almost creamy texture. An easy drinking red and another good beer from GP.

Pours a dark amber, small thin white head. Aroma was pretty faint. Some caramel and malts to it. Taste was initially sweet malts with hints of caramel, but a relatively strong bitterness came soon after as it went down. Body was a little on the thin side. Overall, wouldn't mind getting this again at the pub, but nothing speciail.
