one of the better red lodge beers ive had. this one pours thick and dark red in color. a sturdy and lasting khaki head about two inches high rests on top. the nose is english malt, caramely and well toasted, pushing burnt in some respects. very little sweetness, and some earthy smoke sort of essence. taste is great, i can taste the alcohol though, which is odd for only 6% abv. malts dominate, and a sort of maple syrupy woody rich component comes in towards the end, but isnt hardly sweet at all. bittering hops only, but they are just enough. foamy mouthfeel, almost could have ocme from a nitro tap, really bright and expansive, creamy and smooth. overall not quite tru to style, but a damn fine beer for whatever it really is. happy to drink several pints of this, taking in the complexity. possibly red lodges best work to date.

3.1/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a dark reddish/brown color. A two finger beige head forms and leaves some sticky lace behind.
S: Sweet caramel malt. An odd mineral aroma. Other than that, not much is in the nose.
T: Sweet caramel malt again. A very light lingering hop bitterness. Other than that kind of bland.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Not hard to drink, but don't really want more than one.

This is just so so. Kind of a week attempt at a Scotch Ale. Nothing bad, just on the bland side.

Sampled a couple of glasses at Red Lodge Pizza Co.. Came poured with a half inch head that left after a couple of sips. Dark brown in color with a sweet malty aroma. Refreshing taste, a bit sweet. Great feel, again a bit sweet. Over all a good beer, not the best Wee Heavy I've had but would have no problem making it a regular!

Had it on tap at the Silver Dollar in Cody, Wyoming

A: Not a bad start. Had about a half inch of head to start out, kind of a light brown, didn't hang around too long.

S: Well, it's a smoking bar so it's hard to say. But I swear some sweet malt was in there and I'm not sure what yeast they used but I could pick up something from it I think.

T: Pretty good. Reminds me a little of Founder's Dirty Bastard but lighter. Side by side probably not so much, but there's something there that's catching me. Malty, sweet, a little smoke maybe. Can't put my finger on the hops but there's a bit of hoppiness to it. It's good.

M: I would say over carbonated and it takes away from it a bit. It doesn't let the malt shine through.

D: Pretty good, it falls somewhere in the middle ground of a brown/amber/scotch ale, if that makes any sense. The sweetness might wear on some people a bit, but for the style I think it works well.
