This one was left over in my cooler after a Halloween party.

Hazy amber/honey with a fairly small head...just a bit of lace on this one.

Getting some mild sweet caramel malt but faint...really not much else, not looking so promising.

Wow...this is pretty boring... mild and minimally sweet bready malt character...a little bitterness in the aftertaste, but very little hops coming through. Light to medium body and low to moderate carbonation. This one is pretty easy to drink, but it's not exactly a beer with character. You can certainly find many more apt choices if you're looking for an amber or red ale.

Pours a clear amber, lots of bubbles make up a small off white patchy head. Decent lace clings. Pretty good looks.

Brew smells of light caramel malts and some minimal hops. Average nose.

Brew is a little thin; light caramel malts and mild cocoa are detected. Mild peppery hops with a subtle mellow finish. A decent, but forgettable brew.

This one is pretty good for a non beer geek. A decent non offensive brew.

I poured this flat dull beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was cloudy looking and poured a very poor head. The smelled smelled pretty good, kinda sweet like caramel candy. I had high hopes. However the taste was fruity kinda like spoiled wine. I will not buy this beer again, it was terrible.
