On tap at Market Street Brewing Company in Corning, NY.

Pours a clear red, with a small 1/2 inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like caramel malt, and not much else.

Basically no hop flavor here, but I guess that's expected, given the low IBUs. There also seems to be a mouthwash aftertaste to this one. I was worried that it was still lingering on my palate after the Belgian wit, so I drank a ton of water, but even then I still got that aftertaste. Seems whatever misfortune befell the wit also happened to this one. Watery, and undermalted.

This one is light bodied, with a medium amount of carbonation. Not very drinkable due to the off-flavors.

Pours a deep reddish brown color with a thinnish off white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of earth and caramel. Gives off hints of prune and dark burnt sugar but is really kind of boring on the nose. Taste is malty with caramel toffee and barely enough hops to provide any balance. Slight astringent taste in there actually cuts through some of the sweetness, but hops would have been a better choice for that. Medium carbonation with a medium to thin body and a watery sweet mouthfeel. I didn't enjoy this one much.

A nice cooper color with a white frothy head.

In the nose is sour wine smell - that's about it.

First notice a slight bitterness in the sides of the mouth, but finnishes dry not bitter in the back. On second sip I notice some chocolate notes up front. A nice mouthfeel, blends well, is well-balanced, but it is very low on flavor. Drinkable but not exciting.

The beer pours a dark gold/amber color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light pale and low lovibond crystal malt scent with little hop aroma. The taste is average. It has a weak pale malt flavor with little in the way of specialty malts. It goes down easy, finishes thin and watery. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a low/medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a beer that needs some help. Where is the malt character? Killian's Red has more flavor.

Malty in aroma and lots of lace. Appreciate the sessionable ABV. Moderately bitter though thin in body, there is flavour despite IBU of only 16. Amber colour.Appropriately carbonated. Chocolate malt worked for it. Not a bad one. Fresh, and I get the impression these people are focussed on quality improvement so this is better than it was say a year ago.

5 ounce sampler tasted March 4, 2004. Brewers specs, 1.046 OG, 4.6 % ABV, 16 IBU. Nice amber color with light carbonation and a medium head. Nose is full of crystal malt to the point of being cloying. Light malty flavor, thin body, finish starts syrupy and then disappears.

The beer pours a Reddish-clear color. There is a weak head to it. The aroma is a bit weak also: there isn't much there to pick out any distinct aromas from. The taste is OK, with some maltiness. There is a bit of a chocolate roastiness. Almost no hops to it. An Amber that thinks it was made by one of the Big 3.

I had this again recently. It is still a Big 3 like beer, but it has improved. Much better aromas and taste. Some fiziness to it.
