Lucid Duce pours to a dark copper hue with a nice, creamy, yet solid head of foam that lasts a while and leaves good lacing. The nose on this beer is one of bread, light spice, and vanilla, and it’s quite enticing.

This beer has a flavor that follows its nose, but it’s more intense. Flavors of bread and biscuits are most evident, but there are other great flavors to savor as well, such as caramel, some woodiness, a touch of pine, and a dash of cherries and citrus. The beer has a certain whiskey component to it, too, due to the aging in oak barrels. There is just a touch of alcohol in the finish, but it gets out of the way quickly, allowing you to savor the other complex flavors.

Duce is the first beer I have sampled from Lucid Brewing and I like what I have experienced so far. They really seem to have balanced out the flavors in this beer and I love the complexity and oak aging. This beer is definitely one I will try again when I can and I can’t wait to try more from this brewery. Cheers!

3.6/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice hazy copper/amber color to it. It has a nice thick tan head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet caramel, some toffee, light bready/toasty malts and faint herbal hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has caramel, toffee, some breadiness, toasty/buiscuity malts and light herbal hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.

Pours an amber mahogany color with a soapy head and fair lace. Aroma is full of caramel, soft vanilla and faint buttery toffee. In the taste, caramel, buttery toffee and a small vanilla from the oak. The body is the best part, perfectly medium with solid carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall, a pretty decent brew. Would have it again.

I really liked this. A lot. It was the best red ale I've had so far. Very smooth and very tasty. Received in a beer-of-the-month-club shipment. It was my favorite of the 4 beers that month. I would seek this out if it were available here in Ohio, but I haven't seen it so far. Will keep looking though!
Give it a try. If you like this style, you won't be dissappointed!

Torey's in Owatonna.
Not the most attractive beer around with a cloudy brown color and smallish off-white head.
Aroma was fairly indistinct with a mix of malt and nondescript hops, but nothing bad.
I really like the malting though. Nice crisp toasty and crackling grain. Hops are still indistinct but clearly present with a nice bittering finish that is surprisingly short-lived.
Slightly bitter than moderate feel and lower carbonated.
I like the sum more than the individual pieces to ultimately make a beer I like more than I anticipated.

Serving type: on-tap
