Notes/Commercial Description:
This ale is brewed with the finest quality pale, caramel, and lightly roasted malts. This complex combination of malts, contribute to the deep red color and malty flavor. This is balanced with the flavor, bitterness and aromas of three varieties of hops. The IBU’s are around 35. Top fermenting ale yeast is added to create this well rounded beer.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
5.8% ABV, "leave sediment in bottle, serve at 48°F"

A - Beautiful rusted copper in color, Red Rambler pours with great clarity, assuming you've followed the bottle's instructions, and a nice little ivory head. The short pile of foam sits around, dotting the pint in lace as it drops.

S - Earthy hops lead way into a raw vegital aroma that hints at floral hand soap before fading into a plain bread maltiness that, overall, doesn't create an inviting aroma. In fact, it's downright unpleasant and off.

T - A gentle kiss of caramel sweetness is quickly washed away by biscuity malt and a lingering grassy hop flavor that brings some of the aroma's floral hand soap characteristics to the surface. It certainly doesn't taste as bad as it smells, however.

M - Like the two other Peace Tree beers I've had before this, Red Rambler keeps that same undercarbonated, flat feel that's thin on the tongue. This one finishes with nice smoothness but that quickly changes to a more harsh, almost astringent bitterness that, for it's 35 IBUs, seems somewhat out of place.

O - Peace Tree Red Rambler smells a bit off-putting to be brutally honest, but it drinks a lot better; more maltiness, less off flavors. Either way, this Amber Ale isn't a beer I'd ever want to try again without some serious alterations but in all fairness, it could just be a bad bottle.
