I can see where some people will like this but it's not among my favorite reds/ambers. It has a big, hoppy taste - among the hoppiest that I've had in a red; it's more akin to some IPAs that I've had. The scent is also hoppy but not as pronounced.

This is a typical beer of what I tried at Floosmoor - more hoppy and less smooth than what I would expect for this type of brew.

This brew pours a medium head of finely sized light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left a good lacing. It has a red ale aroma and a strong sour hop initial flavor with a lingering red ale hop finish. Yet anothe nice brew from the folks at Flossmoor Station.

On tap at the brewpub on 7/22/12

Irresponsible tick #2

A) Very cloudy, pondy rust with some rotten orange. Thin layer of foam with thicker ring retention. Thick, droopy lace.

S) Aromas of caramel, earthy hops, soft bread and candy citrus.

T/M) The thin feel has a tough time with the short-tempered pine bursts. Ample carbonation. Sweet bread, caramel and candied fruit sugars round out the middle before the finish turns bitter again. Orange peel emerges as it warms.

D) This one is really rough around the edges.

A slightly hazy, reddish copper Red Ale, with a very large tan head. The smell is definitely hoppy. At first I taste a slight maltiness, there is a bitterness in the middle, and a bitter finish. In my mouth this beer is thin to firm in texture. Overall, I did not care for this Ale, I didn't like how the bitterness "sat" in my mouth.

Well, I find I don't have too much to say about this. A nice roasty quality and a decent enough taste, but it gets overwhelmed because the Nut Brown is the next item on the "sampler platter." This is actually the best session beer of the place, instead of the Zephyr. You would likely have a much higher opinion if it's the only beer you have in one night.

Pours a slightly hazy reddish copper color with a very large tan head. The nose is mild hoppiness with a slight tealike aroma. It tastes of slight malt ovepowered by an almost astringent hoppiness that was not altogether pleasant and a thinnish mouthfeel. Overall a pretty average tasting beer that is drinkable.

Pours light reddish color with clarity. Smell is nice and fresh hoppiness. Quite hoppy and fruity nose. Taste is fruity and hoppy as well with a light malt backing but the hops shine in this amber. Medium to light bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty good amber for sure.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- light tan head that turned more yellow as it thinned out. deep reddish brown body that was opaque and no visible carbonation

S- Strong citrus aroma with hints of pale malt.

T- Big citrus hops that are balanced by a slight resinous hops and some pale malt flavors. I little caramel malt and hints of roasted malt pop out at the finish.

M- creamy mouthfeel with a nice light fizziness that gives it more body.

D- This is a big hoppy red but not big enough to be a hop monster. It didn't really have the malt to stand up to balance the hops if it wants to be an American Amber. Nice beer but I wish it had more maltyness to blend with the hops.

Had on tap at Blind Pig in Champaign. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a very deep purple and red mixture with a nice, 1 finger off white head. It clings to glass like webs creating a beautiful looking beer.

S: I was so hyped up by how great the beer looked that the nose was a little bit of a let down. It wasn't bad, but didn't excite me. Bready malts with a subtle grapefruit and sweet berry. Pretty typical.

T: The was slightly better with some sweeter, caramel malt notes and light hoppiness to it. Also present were some notes of grapefruit and a touch of sweet berry.

M: Ample carbonation with a medium bodie and sticky sweet finish.

O: The was a decent red, but there wasn't anything that really caught my eye. Right about par for the style.

Overall a nice hopped-up style red ale with nice toasted biscuit undertones. A little rough around the edges but not to a major fault. If this were readily available around here, I'd have it around now and again.
