    On cask. WOW what a beer. Nice light brown color with amazing head and good lacing. Aroma was nutty malty and some hops in the background. Flavor was solid. Caramel sweetness that wasn't over done. citrus hops in the aftertaste good way to end the beer for today.

    Sorry to all the purists out there who don't like their beers on nitro, but I love it. This was a beauty, nice deep amber color with some red hues, a very nice pillowy head that laced all the way down, not continuous, but not with rings.... a nice scene, though. The aroma was light caramel malts with some hops. The flavor did not disappoint, great balance of caramel and light bread with a touch of citrus, finishing with a nice bitterness typical of any amber ale. Very well done, full bodied mouthfeel for the style.

    Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, earth, and light citrus. Taste of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, light citrus, with a dry finish.

    I just had this today at lunch at the Media location. There was an amazing, perfectly white, thick head on the red beer, which was full of microbubbles rising just like a good Irish stout. The foam lasted until the last drop. The flavor was quite good, but not the best I've ever had. Very dry. I was very impressed.

    This beer has a true dichotomy--wonderfully red in color, almost sexy--I seriously have never seen a red ale that was more glowingly red--I wish I could replicate the color in my own beer. But it was overly hopped for a Red, which should be maltier, and the Nitrogen tap added little character or smoothness--I didn't quite understand the logic there. Normally I am a real big fan of I/H, but this beer was a big let down. The hops just overpowered the beer...but you have to give them credit for the creativity and attempt at something different.
