Light brown, burnt orange in body with off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, bread, cinnamon, some lemon/grass hop scent as well. Tastes of lemon, grass, pine, caramel, cinnamon, bread. There's a strange nail polish flavor towards the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Pint can, no freshness date, kind of wish there was in this instance
L - very cloudy, opaque ruddy brown ale with a quick-to-dissipate ivory head
S - fruity, malty, earthy, caramel, bread crust
T - earthy rye, bread crust, caramel, burnt caramel also, spicy, earthy piny hops, some citrus and fruitiness, at times it's boozy and hot making it more difficult to drink
F - medium body, resinous, lower carbonation
O - not crazy over this one. It was ok, but seemed a bit muddled and uninspired.

Deep brown mahogony color, didn't get much foam on my pour. Smells like caramel malt, a bit of hop presence. Taste is malty sweet. Smells strongly of the hops. Not familiar with Zythos and Palisade, so not sure what to expect, or what each contributes. Medium to full body, heavy mouthfeel. I think its too hoppy and the ABV too high to be an American Amber.

Poured out a clear amber color with a small, short-lived head. It smelled of caramel malt, grasses and hints of citrus. It tasted quite malty and there was a slightly, bitter, citrusy hop kick. It was crisp and dry

22oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a woody orange-brown with a nice off-white head. Decent lacing and retention.

S: Mild citric hop - orange, grapefruit - with lots of caramel and buttered bread behind.

T: A heavy, almost smoky bitterness sets in, followed by grapefruit, apple, buttery dark bread, tobacco, caramel.

M: Medium-bodied with frothy carbonation.

O: Has the potential to be a decent, if not slightly boring red ale, if they tone down that astringent bitterness.

2/11/15 - Monk’s Pub (Chicago) - Draft - Unique colour and smell of lemon and cinnamon. A little sweater than I prefer, but I enjoyed it none the less. The texture was very light, the taste good, not very strong. Good beer and I’m glad I tried it.
