on tap at Maumee Bay brewpub in Toledo.

This is a deep reddish-amber color. with a bone-colored head of moderate size and duration. Rather unremarkable, even timid aroma and flavor. Good sweet/bitter balance and no major flaws.

Medium-light carbonation with a medium body.

O: ho-hum

This comes off looking a little flat. There's not much head to speak of; a thin foam sits around and at least it lingers. Very light but somewhat more than minimal lacing is left behind. On the plus side, the color is a very nice deep, clear mahogany-copper red.
There's a balance of hops and malt on the nose with a bready element and a light spice.
Hops and malt are stronger in the flavor, complementing each other nicely. A light caramel sweetness from the malt balances a fresh herbal and citrus hops bitterness. Grains linger beneath and the peppery spice carries over to the taste.
A decent mouthfeel blends a balance of moderate crispness and smoothness. Body is light-medium.
This is a sturdy enough brew that isn't spectacular but is pretty tasty and makes for good drinking.

Sample at the brewpub: Clear copper color with a medium thin off-white head with steady dissipation except for an island in the middle. Rings of lacing througout the glass. Mildly malty nose. Light, clean body with an earthy malt character. Some hops are there too. The finish is round and sweet. Pretty average through and through.

I hadn't had this beer in a long time, and I think there is a new recipe now. I read through the other BA reviews for this, and they all seem to have what I remembered. However, this new recipe is much better than their older one, and if you haven't had it in awhile, I would suggest you give this one another shot.

Served in a pint glass, the beer arrives crystal clear amber in appearance with a finger of cream colored head. Citrous aroma smells of American hops. Also some bready crystal malt smell. Flavor is slightly hoppy with a nice toasty backbone. Orange peel, some grapefruit, a little herbal-ness from the hops. The last recipe did not have hops like this. Definitely not a hop-head beer by any means, it is very well balanced. Finishes a little dry, with that crystal malt spirited in its toasty flavor. Carbonation is tight, mouthfeel is medium, a really nice session beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Amber/red color with a small white head on top.

Smell: Spicy hops and a little bit of malt sweetness.

Taste: Sweet malt upfront that turns straight to the hops to give you a little bitter bite to back up the sweet.

Mouthfeel: Pretty decents mouthfeel, not water, not oil. Good for the style.

Overall a decent session brew.

I had a couple of these at a BA get-together at the brewery. I bought one, the other just showed up. Non-the-less an ok beer to sit with, eat & talk. Its a non-interfering beer, not an over the top beer with one taste over another. It arrived a nice dark clear amber with red hues. Not much to the off-white head at all. Lace was light rings. The aroma was mild with that mostly of malt. The taste was malty, not overly sweet. A slight hop balance adds a crisp slight bitter dryness to the finish. The body is medium, carbonation is as well. Over-all an ok, not a standout brew, but one you can sit with awhile and enjoy whatever else you want to take in.

Yawn, yawn, yawn.

Pro: Goes down like water.
Con: Goes down like water.

What can I say? This is one hell of a drinkable brew -- but considering its fairly rich color, I was hoping for a bit more. The description claims it's "well-hopped," but I noticed only a moderate hoppy presence, if that, at the finish of this brew. Very malty, slightly watery, and a bit thin.

Crystal clear reddish tone, though. Looks great. Very drinkable. An average review for an average beer.

This name plays upon the historically significant Battle of Fallen Timbers that took place in this region. The defeat of Native Americans at the hands of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne largely ended resistance to the westward movement into the Northwest Territory, despite an effort by Tecumseh to form a confederation of tribes to stop the settling of the region.

This ale is true to its style having a dark amber body with great red hues. The head is nearly white and minimal; there is virtually no lace effect. The nose is mild but gives a malt sense along with some subtle hop hints. The hops play out in the taste creating a nice bitterness. The feel is medium and has just enough crisp finish to get by. An enjoyable, if not significant, red ale.
