look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 16 oz can into a Fat Cat pint glass. Jan. 2018 canning date on can. Batch #1004.
Nice reddish-amber colored body with an eggshell head that has good retention.
Hop forward aroma with caramel malts.
Flavor: well balanced and good complexity but not particularly harmonious mix of grains and hops. Spicy-earthy hops and caramel malts are most obvious, with more subtle rye.

This is probably my favorite ale that is available year-round. It has a nice, coppery color (I always pour into a nonic pint glass) and a head that is about 3/8" and off white. Carmel and yeast aroma. Very good lacing. The feel is very good and it finishes well.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a semi clear ruby colored beer with a small white head. The aroma is light hops and malt. The taste is similar to the nose.

look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Poured from 16oz can into glass. No ABV marking on can.
Dark bourbon colored body, slightly off white head, fluffy three finger head settles into thin cap.
Bland, dusty, and off-putting smell and taste. May be oxidized.
Not a fair test as the beer was canned more than a year ago.

Nice dark almost bourbon brown color with 1 finger white head, some lacing.

Smell is a little bit of a hint of fruit behind some nice medium malt and hop aromas.

Taste is very smooth, sweet with a tiny bit of bitter hops to clean up the finish and make it not overly sweet.

Little thin on the mouth feel for me but I don't drink this style beer often so it may be on par .

Overall very smooth beer that goes down almost too easy and could get you in trouble if you don't take it slow lol..

Would buy again.

No date appears on can. Poured into a pint glass. It pours a coppery-orange color with two fingers of fluffy, ecru-colored head and thick lacing. It smells of malt and caramel. The initial taste is rye malt with a slightly bitter hoppy finish. It has a rather creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. The 6.10% ABV is extremely manageable. Overall, it's a very nice American Amber/Red Ale. It's not at the level of Flipside, Nosferatu or Nugget Nectar but it would work well at a barbeque or for casual drinking.

Run-of-the-mill amber, thanks Mark. Some hop flavour. Meets the style and serviceable. Light rye contribution. Light amber colour with a touch of lace.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look: A beautiful dark amber that is crystal clear. Appropriate head, dissipated moderately.
Smell: The burnish aroma of aromatic malts, slight floral hop.
Taste: Plenty of flavor and a slight burnishment from the darker specialty malts. This is no gateway amber ale. Nice malt backbone with an American craft beer hop finish.
Feel: Great washing down a burger or steak!
Overall: A very good American Ruby Red Ale - very versatile.
