Interesting mild smoked flavor that complements the red ale style. Could use some more sweetness or spice and more body, but the flavor is still unique and enjoyable. Very easy to drink a couple of these without it becoming fatiguing. Glad I tried this. A nice session beer.

A: Pours a crystal clear reddish amber in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some dark copper + garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy beige head that reduces to a mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts with a light touch of tannins as well as some light notes of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of caramel malts with very light amounts of sweetness and a light to moderate amount of tannins. That is followed by a light flavor of earthy hops and almost of hint of woodiness. Light amounts of bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Clean.

O: Pretty well balanced and easy to drink at just 5% ABV though not the most interesting of brews. I could have a couple of these in a session and they match pretty well with foods but not something I'm going to run out to find again.

Served on tap in a 2 oz flight glass.

A: A very nice caramel color with just a hint of an orange tint. A fairly bright white head which fades quickly. Little to no lacing.

S: A heavy scent of caramel compliments the color. A hint of yeast is apparent, but there is very little to no scent of hops. Still subdued and earthy though; not overly sweet smelling.

T: Very pleasant taste.... once again caramel is the foremost taste with an oaky aftertaste through which hints of caramel are still apparent.

M: Initially hits the tongue as a lighter brew, but becomes moderately denser the longer it warms in the mouth. Pleasantly surprising finish without being overly heavy for the style and ABV.

O: A rather enjoyable brew, with a consistent caramel theme throughout. Recommended if the opportunity to sample it arises.

This beer is a deep blood-red colored Irish Style Red Ale with a rich toasty, toffee, malty body and a balance hop flavor and aroma. The beer is super clean and finishes nice and clean. This is a beer you can enjoy year round from the Beer Army Combat Brewery. Also, a portion of the proceeds go to benefit a local volunteer fire departments in Trenton, NC so drink up and enjoy!

Drinking this for the first time was like drinking gold. The richness and taste of this beautifully fermented beverage was absolutely delicious. This should absolutely be a cornerstone for the Brewery. The only way I can think to describe this is like butter in the mouth. Drinking your first glass leaves you wanting another. Not overly carbonated as so many beers seem to be these days. Beautiful red color with a nice head that does not fade quickly
