Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #33 (Oct 2009):

A contract-brewed brand where a portion of the proceeds go to a charity. Brewed with pure Indian Wells Spring Water. OK, go figure.

Hazy reddish amber view; decent lacing does not stay around for long. Nose is a little husky and citric with a faint bubble gum or medicinal note. Slick, snappy body made us almost grimace as the snap ended with a near astringent collision with the taste buds. Hops come across a bit coarse with the backside of American hop flavor of watery citric and grassy flavors. Grainy with a dirty toasted husk flavor in the puckering finish.

A bit pedestrian, lackluster and somewhat out of whack. Not horrible, but hardly a something to quaff back. Perhaps someone needs to make a call to the contract brewer on this one.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear, but dark red colored body.
The aroma is a nice wet grain smell.
The taste is big on the malt side, though not too sweet. There's some caramel and mild lemon bitterness. Nicely balanced.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
It's a easy drinking brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured brownish red with no head. Thin white ring and skiff on surface. Dark in center.
Aroma: Caramel malt. Diacetyl.
Taste: Plum raisin and molasses with mossy hops.
Mouthfeel: Moderate, malty but watery.
Overall: Once I got the diacetyl, it was hard to notice other dimensions of character. Seems like it could be a drinkable beer.

Sampled on 11/22/13 from a 12 ounce bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and pored into a pilsner glass.

Pours a nice dark red amber in color with a very small off white head. Lots of bubbles from the high carbonation. Some spotty lacing was seen but not a lot. The aroma was of some malts with citrus and floral. The taste was close to the aroma but had a bitter aftertaste that lingered around for a bit. A tad on the 'watery' side. It's really not one of the better red ales I have had.
