Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was an amber color with a sly finger’s worth of white foamy head. Clingy messy lace. The aroma had a light roastiness with some piney hops and a firm caramel malt backbone. Light cracker and biscuits. The flavor was sweet with the malt bill up front, cracker and caramel fully there. Malts linger into the aftertaste and into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation and the ABV felt good. Overall, good amber ale worthy of having again.

Had this on tap at Midnight Sun Brewery in June 09, brewed by Moose's/Bear Tooth however.

Color: Red amber fruity looking, carnberry

Taste: Raspberry pomegranate flavor with syrupy taste.

No particular aspect of the beer stands out as exceptional, but I almost consider it a fruit beer the way it tasted. Red Ale with fruit emphasis.
