Canned 14OCT11, Reviewed 15DEC11
A: copper ale with a finger of peanut foam which falls quickly to a sheet of the same. cobweb lace. excellent clarity. (3.5)
S: Grapefruit, resin, bubble gum, caramel malts. Some notes of candied sugar. (3.5)
T: Sweet, bubble gum comes through. Slightly bitter with more sweet malts. A little too sweet without diversity in malting. (3)
M: Medium bodied with hi carb. Semi dry finish. (3)
O: I've enjoyed this beer many times, and am finding it to be a bit one dimensional these days. It is still a good beer, however. (3.5)

Canned 3/4/11 - reviewed 16MAY11
A: Pours a burning red ale with a single-two finger peanut head which falls quickly to a medium sheet of the same. Sheeting lacing. Superb clarity. (4)
S: Lots of malt, lots of hops! Grapefruit, sweet citrus fruits, hints of bubble gum, cotton candy. Sweet, caramel malts, hints of biscuit. Good. (4)
T: Plenty of biscuity malts, caramels, hints of toffee. A little bit of hay, sheetgrass. Hints of spice. An almost creamy background as well. (3.5)
M: Medium to heavy body with low carbonation. Dry and creamy finish. (3)
O: Really well crafted brew. My only wish is that the beer had a hint more carbonation. Love this beer, love this brewery. (3.5)
