    Another freebie from my awesome neighbor Stacy H. - time to return the favor. This was a nice red ale. What made this beer for me was the hint of smoke/roasted malts in the background. A nice beer!

    More of a golden red, or a light amber than a true red ale. Aroma is primarily caramel malt, with some fruit and floral hints. Flavour is a tad on the sweet side with only weak hops trying to balance it out. A below average beer.

    Tap at Calhoun’s - This poured a light amber color. The aroma was malty with some dark fruit and caramel. The flavor is rather watery with a slight bitterness present. Overall not much going on here.

    Thanks Bluesandbarbq for this one. It is ok. Caramel-red pour with almost no head. For an Irish ale made in Tenn. its ok. Some malt with a little hp bite. Nice impression of an Irish red.

    I'm drinking this Irish-style Cherokee Red ale from Tennessee (must be bluesandbarbq's pedigree beer; thanks, bro) as Farve and the Jets are handing the Titans their first loss of the season. Pours from the bottle a hazy copper color with a transient whisp of an off-white head. The nose is met by a caramel apple aroma and the moutfeel is crisp and medium-bodied. Light caramel malt flavors are joined by faint hops that provide more fruitiness than bitterness. The initially crisp fruity finish slowly mellows.

    Pours a semi-clear brownish amber colour with no head. Prevalent caramel flavors, brown sugar, and nutty flava. Slightly bready and off dry roasted malt character. Finishes pretty smooth.

    Thanks to Bluesandbarbq for this tasty treat in our last beer trade. This beer poured a slightly cloudy copper color and carried with it a mild aroma. It showed some roasted malt in the flavor. Very similar to NewCastle, but much better.

    A red ale that I have actually enjoyed several times, it has a great red-amber color and a nice frothy head. Good carbonation. Aromas of very slightly toasted malts, slight sweetness, and hops. Great smooth taste - a balance of malts and hops with a nice finish.

    Had this at the Smokey Mtn. Brewery. Clear amber/red with slight alcohol presence. Woodsy, light fruit, and malty. Underrated IMO, but maybe it was just my glass...

    Clear orange/amber color with dissapointing head, which is probably the best thing I can say for this beer. Theres a battle between sour and vinegar going on and it’s not worth sticking around to see who wins. Lord knows it’s not me. Jerry, thanks bro.
