Beautiful pour with deep red hues, amber, and off white head. Nose is a delight with candied fruits and a clean biscuity/bready component. Nose is my favorite aspect of this ale. Palate offers a nice balance between a slightly candied malt sweetness with smooth fruity hop components, some floral stuff too, and a medium body. Hop tickle towards the end and through the aftertaste. New Bomber size from Total Wine.

A light tan head settles into a nice lacing above a clear bright copper-reddish colored beer.

Light roasted malt aroma with nice hops presence coming through as well.

Roasted caramel malt presence in the taste is balanced with a fair amount of almost citrus like hops.

A lighter dryish aftertaste that harbors some of the roasted malt tastes on this medium bodied beer.

Decent enough example of this style of beer, I wouldn't mind downing a few of these on any given afternoon.

a: deep amber, almost copper.. head perfectly reached the top of my KRBC pint glass.. it actually stuck around too..

s: there's actually a good dose of hops in the nose.. piney hops with a hint of lemon.. its balanced out big bready notes & some caramel.. reminds me a lagunitas beer.

t: upfront is sweet malts.. toasty malts with some breadiness.. middle of the tongue the caramel/toffee pulls through. back end is slightly dry with a bit of pine hop bite.. rounds out with a lingering toasted malt flavor.. some pine does stick around as well..

mf: good medium body with a good amount of carbonation.

o: overall a decent brew.. paired well with my pizza. would make a good fall beer imo

Pours a clear dark orange form the can. Rising bubbles are seen. A very thin ecru head. Very sweet malt aroma of orange and candied yams with carmel sauce with some earth hops behind. Taste does not follow. Taste is hops: pinecone-woody and grapefruit skin. There is a sharp tang in there as well, not metallic. Decent.

A: Thick white head. Foam stuck to the sides of the glass all the way down. Dark red to malt brown. Light on the bubbles.

S: Sweet. Pine and tree sap. Slightly floral.

T: Sweet up front again. A hoppy backbone comes in and finishes with leather and mahogany.

M: A bit thick and chewy. On the dry side. Could benefit from more crispness to clean the palate. Slight metallic/mineral aftertaste.

O: Just didn't work for me. Too dry. Not very refreshing and not nearly enough crispness. Bought this can on a trip to Phoenix, I liked all the beers from the Four Peaks taster tray better.

I CANnot seem to find her now, but Miss A used to be on this site and not only was she a friend, but she also hailed from Flagstaff. Come in, Bocktech! This review is for yunz guys.

From the CAN: "Brewed by Beaver Street Brewing Co. Inc.";"Pack it in, pack it out!"; "It's all about altitude!" and "Flagstaff, Arizona".

The Crack & Glug immediately revealed a nice change of pace in the form of a finger-and-a-half of foamy, tawny head that hung around like it was not anxious to leave. Lacing was beginning to form as I typed. Color was a deep reddish-amber with NE-quality clarity. BUPGOO! Nose was slightly hoppy, a little nutty and I was anxious. Mouthfeel was medium with an initial burst of citrus hops, but balanced by a pleasant caramel flavor on the tongue. Mmmm. Finish was more malty/caramel than hoppy, but there was still enough of a hoppy bite to it that I felt whole again. I'm telling you, the steady stream of AALs on this misguided adventure is killing me! My, but this was tasty. I am not going back out to Flagstaff any time soon, even if salmon is on the menu, but this would be good in a cooler if you are able to get some.

Thanks to Bobby for this beer.

A: The beer pours a light amber color with a fair amount of orange and a creamy off-white head.

S: There is a fair amount of citrus hop character with some pine notes to it. A light floral character to go along with toasted malt and a slight sweetness of toffee and bread.

T: Lots of malt flavor. Heavy on the bread and toast with a bit of toffee and caramel. The hop flavors are not quite as intense as the aromas. Citrus, grass, and floral notes with a light bitterness.

M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Not a bad red ale. I liked the aroma a bit better than the nose, however.
