2.68/5 rDev -18.3%
Poured bomber into 34oz mug; cloudy ruddy brown with a fizzy white head that fades into nothing quickly, almost like a soda. Carbonation looks like a soda as well, this is a very effervescent beer. Smell is subdued caramel malts, no real hops in the scent except for some small herbal hints. Taste is pretty simple; earthy, slightly sour malt with some slight hops here and there. This isn't like any amber/red ale I've had before...seems way off the style. Mouthfeel is fizzy and medium-thick.
Overall this seems way off; needs better malt, more hops, and way less carbonation. It's still a drinkable beer though.

A-Cloudy, burnt red/brown two finger head with some carbonation.
S-Caramel and malt. Some toffee, not much else though. Maybe a little honey.
T-Caramel, malt, more malt. Not much else. Bland and one dimensional, poor after taste, overly sugary. Not a good bled of flavors.
M-Medium bodied, some carbonation.
O-It seems like this was left unfermented or something. Sweet and unblanced.

Poured into mug from bomber. Reddish/brownish color. Nice head but fades quickly. Not very hoppy taste. Has a hint of caramel. Smells like it would have more of a hop taste. Alright malt smell. Bitterness last a little while. Not a bad beer. Goes down kind of smooth. Love trying anything from NY.

A- pours a deep amber with pretty good head retention
S- sweet malt and a slight hint of hops. not a ton of aroma
T- little raisin, honey, subtle plum flavor. Kind of interesting flavors for a red ale, not quite as hoppy as I would have expected but still pretty balanced.
M-medium bodied, nice feel overall, very drinkable
O- not a bad brew, it was a little on the sweet side but still enough bitterness on the back end to make it a very drinkable beer. Not amazing beer but if the price was right I would pick up a few more.

The beer pours a dark amber/red color with a 1/2" off-white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a sweet, caramel scent along with a light to mild hop nose. The taste is decent as well. It has a rich, caramel malt sweetness along with a complimentary hop character. It's mildly bitter and well balanced. It goes down easy with a rich, almost syrupy caramel feel. The elevated alcohol level is well hidden. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a pretty good beer that seems like it could be better. It's balanced, yet seems a bit rich with too many unfermented sugars.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A: Hazy brownish, copper color. Aggressive pour leads to a khaki colored 2 finger head. Lacing is pretty much non-existent.
S: Malt forward smell with some diacetyl tones as well. It's the malt that takes center stage here and they aren't great. Not terrible and certainly not complex.
T: Malts are still present and there are some hop notes and other smells here as well but they all add up to a kind of sloppy tasting beer.
M: Creamy feel, lots of bitterness causes me some pucker.
O: A very average red. I won't be seeking another out.

Ok second and final cortland brew for the evening at j ryans
A- pours a reddish amber body with some foam that quickly disappears leaving some lacing. The brew is actually slighly clear for the dark look
S- very faint sweet malt and sugar. The scent is a little light for my liking and not too much as far as a hop presence
T- sweet caramel and sugars are pretty widespread in this amber ale. The brew is tasty if you are into the sweet amber styles. I do like the attention to flavor
M- very crisp and literally whipping the mouth with sweet flavor
D- red dragon is a pretty good brew from CBC. Again, there are some sweet flavors that might not be for everyone. I like it though
