12 oz. bottle tried 20 Nov 2011. Courtesy of R&S, thank you. Served in the Schlafly shaker pint.

Medium sized light brown head. Lightly carbonated. Clear dark copper in color. Moderate aroma, sweet oranges, resin, butter. Starts sweet and caramely. Some resin and buttery toffee. Medium sticky body, moderate ethanol. Lots of caramel. Finishes with some sweet orange, moderately bittersweet.

Like a pumped up amber. I liked this a bit better than A did.

A - a hazy light brown pour with about half a finger of head

S - caramel, has a distinct smell of a fresh cut lawn.. kind of weird, i know, but it's that sweet smell of wet grass before it starts stinking (the beer doesn't stink, thankfully!)

T- taste of rye malt, a weird after taste lingers of what seems to be a raw broccoli taste. kind of a weird day for me, 2 beers and they both taste like different raw veggies. nothing wrong with this at all, it's making me crave fresh veggies now!

M - a very easy flowing beer. lightly carbonated, smooth yet tingly on the palate.

O - not a bad beer at all. seems a bit heavy on the abv for a red, but i can't complain about a complimentary buzz! could use a little more work on the head, maybe more profound taste characteristics.

Picked up on my Wisconsin beer haul. Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A: Pours a brownish amber with orange/red tint. Half finger off-white head sticks around and laces well. Nice looking Amber.

S: Hops, sweet caramel malts, fresh pine, citrus-grapefruit. Typical of red/ambers.

T: Well balanced. It does not deliver the bitter punch that many ambers do. Insead, you are left with a nice balance between hops/citrus and caramel malts. Different, but refreshing.

M: A bit too watery for me. Good coating, but at the expense of odd body. Good aftertaste flavors.

A- this one pours a murky dark orange w/ some ruby highlights with a finger of off white head.

S- caramel malts and citrus hops, some earthy backbone.

T- lots of caramel malt, the hops not as prevalent as I'd like, but still a tasty beer.

M- medium and a bit oily.

O- a nice beer, wish I had this super fresh as I imagine this one has been around a couple of months. Solid beer, but won't seek it out as it's not distributed in CO
