Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Murky rust color. Cream colored head leaves a thick film, decent lacing initially.

Aroma: Charred grains underneath an otherwise hoppy aroma.

Taste: Bitter hops attack first, leaving no room for any malt sweetness. Maybe some grains toward the end, but still a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, bright.

Overall: I'm not a fan of hoppy reds. I prefer malty reds. This is my least favorite Marshall beer in an otherwise exceptional lineup. No worries.

On tap. Poured into a pint glass by a waitress who didn't know how to pour a beer.
Massive tan head on top of a dark red body that was hazy at top and clear at the bottom. The head receded super slowly leaving solid lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass. Aroma of hops and pine, but no aromas of malt or sweetness. Hoppy upfront with hints of underwhelming malts in the middle before a bitter finish. It tasted like it smelled. It was actually smooth and surprisingly drinkable despite the bitterness. Medium carbonation and body with a crisp finish. Overall, it's alright. Definitely more hoppy ale than red ale.

Picked up a sixer, figured I'd see how this compares to the draft version...

Pours chestnut with 3 fingers of tan head. super lacing & above average head retention

S: Pine notes, herbal hops, & biscuitty malt

T: Follows them nose, much dryness & some woody hops, a touch of caramel up front. Dryness & woody hops dominates as this warms, some caramel & toffee there as well. Finishes dry, toasty, piney, sweet & with a touch of nuttyness & a bit of tannin at the end

MF: Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, super balance, almost pulled a 4.5

Great drinkability, a solid effort, easily one of the best from this brewery in draft or bottle. This will be in the rotation if I can score a steady supply...

Pours to a frothy, rocky beige head with medium lace and good retention. Medium ruby red color and a bit hazy. Aroma is floral, pine, citrus and honey with biscuit and caramel malts. Flavor is rich, savory and complex with caramel, coffee and biscuits mixed with all kinds of hop flavors playing well together. Good bitter bite to offset the sweet. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side and satisfying. Overall, I enjoyed this beer, it's like a meaner, grittier, hardcore craft beer drinker's version of Native Amber from Coop.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty, dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some hops. Taste is hops up front, caramel malts at the finish, balanced and tasty. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Served this 12 oz. brown bottle in a Sam Adams glass. No date. Thanks to chocosushi for this one. The body was a deep red/garnet color and nearly opaque, unfiltered. There was a modest tan head that sizzled down to a fine island and ring.

The smell was grains. Rye and barley - not much else.

The taste was spicy and sweet from the graininess. There was a bitter apple finish.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with plenty of carbonation and alcohol bite. Nothing "wow" here.

On tap at Grandad's. Pours a solid amber with a foamy head that dissipates fairly fast. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is predominately spruce and pine, with just a touch of malt. Not surprisingly, that's exactly how it tastes. The blend of hops makes it reasonably interesting. Nice bitterness. Medium mouth. There's not a lot of carbonation, so the aftertaste hangs on the tongue well. This is my second time to try this one, and it really reminds me of an IPL like Widmer Bros. Hopside Down. This isn't spectacular, but just a solid brew that always hits the spot.
