Copper ale with an off white head that falls with a nice lace. The American amber ale has a great nose with lots of toffee, caramel and strong hop spice. Big malt shows up in the taste w/o some of the other flavors in the nose. Hop bite is light but pleasant. Overall, a nice amber ale that gives the senses a nice run for the money and is still very drinkable. Might not buy for home again, but would gladly get a pint in a bar for a refreshing change of pace or a great go to beer for a place with a limited selection.

Props to chugalug06 for sharing this with me as an extra. Thanks Geoff!

Pour is a reddish copper with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is almost non-existent. Nose has some deep malt/breadiness to it.

I'm not much for ambers/reds, and the first taste is a pleasant surprise. Nice and light, great carbonation across the tongue, some drying hop bitterness across an otherwise sweet finish. Didn't take long for me to finish this one, and wish I had a couple more on hand.

I normally expect Red Ales to be malty and way too sweet. This beer is something else

Yes it is malty but it has a wonderful surge of hops. Seems more like an extra malty pale ale than anything.

Hazy dark amber brew with a glow when you hold it up to the light.

Aroma is mostly toasty malt but with some hops in the background. Flavor is balanced and rich. Some copper notes. Floral hops.

Extremely drinkable. I wish I bought more than just one bottle of this, on my last trip to Junction City, KS.

Poured into a snifter. "Best By" date clearly marked on bottle.

Pours deep crimson and clear (I left some sediment chunks and whatnot in the bottom of the bottle). The small head that formed from the conservative pour slowly fades and leaves nice lace on the glass.

My first whiff yields a highly pineapple-hop rich aroma. Some swirling brings up sweet pine-sap, grapefruit, and more pineapple.

Hops dominate the flavor of this ale, with some (but not as much as one would think) malts supporting the blossoming hop flavors. The flavors are closely tied to the nose, with the addition of some subtle malts.

The mouthfeel is good, with medium body and enough carbonation to keep things lively.

Conclusion: This is a fine ale, however if something is called "red" I expect to taste some fairly rich malts, which I don't really with this beer. The hops are juicy and flavorful. If there was more balance with this beer I would probably love it. I don't feel it is over hopped, but instead that the malts are not rich and complex enough. Alas, it seems that for the typical American palate, any style that is overrun with American hops becomes a new favorite. Just hop the junk out of it and it will earn an 'A' on BA, no matter how far from the original style it has drifted...

Pours a beautiful dark red color with a nice sized cream colored head. Good head retention. Aroma is mostly hops, lots of pine and some citrus as well. There is a noticeable bit of malt in the background.

Taste is very hoppy. Very good pine and citrus flavors here. Some light caramel, and biscuity malt. Medium body that was well cabonated. A slightly dry finish. Very easy drinking. A great red ale. I will purchase again.
