Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #49 (Feb 2011):

Big waft of fruitcake and wild herbs in the nose. Mildly hazed deep amber color shows some tiny bubbles; those same bubbles have produced an epic creamy lacing. The ale is not shy, and shows off its lush smoothness right away, while the malty medium body holds together very well. Biscuit, bread crust and a hint of grainy caramel throughout the malt--this beer does show its bold Red Ale side. Hops throw down a pretty hefty bitterness, brash but flavorful. Fruitiness suggests ripe apple orchard flavors with a hint of golden raisin in the back end; alcohol is warming. Finishes bittersweet and biscuity. A worthy encounter--a bit more caramel edge would do it great, but a good drink nonetheless.

12oz bottle to New Belgium Globe.

A: Amber red, mostly clear, lots of tannish head and pretty good lacing.

S: Big malt backbone; a touch surprised by this considering the triple-hopped marketing, but maybe I shouldn't be. Smells like a prototypical American Amber...bready crystal, caramel, lightly toasted, flash of toffee, some spice, and a big resinous and piney from the hops.

T: Moderately bitter...caramel and spice, pine and toffee...piney & herbal hops, with some dankness in the background. Bready malt undertones are prominent.

MF: Creamy medium body; decent bitterness for an amber.

O: Could have been much better. Could have been worse. I expected more because of the packaging, and didn't restrain my expectations even though it was Bridgeport. Still, a decent brew, definitely not bad.
