12 oz can stamped on bottom with "canned on 06/22/13" served in a pint,

Pours clear, dark brown with a full dark tan head. Good retention and nice creamy feel.

Enough spicy hops to add complexity and balance the sweetness from the malts. Light nutty too.
Easy drinking and in a can but plenty of flavor. Indeed, bold for style.
Recommended.

Had this one during my buddy’s bachelor party! Tick all day, every day! Served from tap into a Samuel Adams sampler shaker. Poured a deep red brown with a one finger slight tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, bread, nutty, caramel, caramel hop, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, bread, nutty, caramel, milk chocolate, and caramel hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly average brew. With that said, it has to be known that the bartender called this one ‘Watershit’. Based on the flavor I can see why… Not that it wasn’t complex or anything, but more along the lines that everything in this brew clashed with everything else so badly that it was hard to drink. The aroma wasn’t terrible so it was a little off-putting upon taking my first sip. I wasn’t able to finish my sampler if that gives you any idea..

My 150th review! I'll always remember you, watership brown... .

Appearance 3.5: Pours out a deep, golden amber with a fine 1/4" creamy head. Very attractive.

Smell 3.0: Nice bouquet. Malt, brown sugar...but I also detect a hop I do not care for. Slight bleu cheese bouquet mixed with a rotten lemoniness. Yeah. I do not like that hop.

Taste 3.75: Front is where some very pleasant maltiness seeps in. Middle is smooth, creamy and neutral. Finish is where some amazing malt and brown sugar and caramel creeps up on you along with a very slight hoppiness. Finish is long and this is where some previously unnoticed toasted grains appear in the flavor palate.

Mouthfeel: 4.0: Carbonation level is perfect for this type of beer and really enhances the tasting experience.

Overall 3.50: Very nice taste and drinking experience with this beer. However, the experience was tempered somewhat with the hop I do not like (wish I could find out what it is!). Regardless, this beer is entirely sessionable and thoroughly enjoyable. It may be a bit sweet for some, but I would recommend you try this brew if you can find it.

Served from a growler into a tulip pint glass.

A: Slightly translucent brown with a slight hint of copper. It has a tight carbonation with a 1.5 finger head when poured that reduces very quickly to a light lacing.

S: There are slight roasted over-tones, slight with a little bit of hops though overall no strong characteristic comes through.

T: I will say upfront that when I see a brown and smell roasted malts I expect a little bit of a caramel like taste with a hint of chocolate roasted goodness. Not so much here. The front of the palate picks up the hops and they are very fresh, almost as piney as a dry hopped beer with some alcohol over tones. You have to fight this beer to get to the sweetness you expect. I will say that if you can let it warm a little the "brown ale" attributes begin to emerge.

M: Here again it doesn't have the feel you would fully expect form the style. There is a bright carbonation that lends to the bright taste.

O: I have to say I like Red Hare beers. I have been to the brewery and know they know their beers. Whether it was just this batch or the stuffy nose and allergy season I am suffering through, this beer did not live up to the style for me. I find myself taking one more swig hoping for the taste to change.
