12oz bottle undated from AC. Amber color and malt/chocolate nose. Taste included mocha, malt and caramel. Easy drinking and smooth. A good beer but not outstanding. Maybe not our favorite type of beer.

Got this out of a beer of the month package that was given to me for christmas.

L: dark amber brown color. When it's held up to the light it reveals a dark red. Pours with a very thin white head that fades quickly leaving a ring of foam against the glass as you drink.
S: promenant notes of roasted malt dominate the nose of this beer.
T: very mellow flavors of roasted malt come out immediately. After you swallow you are left with a traces of hops that fade rather quickly and leave almost no bitterness as an after taste. To me it taste more like a brown ale then a red.
F: pleasant feeling on the tounge but the carbonation is very forward and the bubbles feel rather large.
O: a very decent beer, it doesn't blow me away but it is very drinkable and warms you as you drink. Which is great because it's 10° as I'm writing this

The liquid is clear. The bubbles last as a thin layer even though the initial pour provides a small head. Limited streaks for lace.

The smell is closer to a Brown Ale than an Amber/Red. Not quite chocolatey but there's some very dark crystal malts to the nose. The color bears this out with a solid brown color where light passes easily through the center of the glass.

The taste is similar to what the smell suggests. The body is similar to a Brown Ale (i.e. thin) with an elevated effervescence. There's a darker toast flavor. Overall, it's dry with a short aftertaste--a touch of earthiness. Subtle but balanced hops.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, light pine. Taste is toasted malts, some caramel, but not nearly as much as the aroma would indicate,a bit of hops are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

This beer left me bewildered. I don't get it. There's nothing distinguishing about this beer. I can't give it less than a solid three, but it ain't worth more than that.

From the tap and Bel Air location (recently sold). Pours clear, reddish-brown in color with a small head. The nose is pleasant with a bit of malt. A bit of malt in the mouth as well. Medium bodied. Easy to drink. Nice!

Had on tap. Pours clear, tan in color with minimal head. Taste is toasted malt, grain,with chocolate and caramel tones as it warms. Medium bodied, clean easy drinker. A really good red ale that I would have again.

Drinking this nice little red this afternoon I know I've had this before. Or else it was something that tastes nearly the same, which is entirely possible. This is a competent American red, and there is a lot of similarity between some of them

It is on the brown side of red with nice continuous head. The aroma is clean, mild and malty.

The taste is very middling too. It's balanced, with hops being lower in the picture than on some of the style, and that's as it should be. It's a nice clean malty taste that leaves you refreshed.

This isn't a brew that will wow you with any extremes but it is a well made drink that you should not refuse. Have one.
