Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep amber ruby red with lots of rising bubbles. Huge six fingers of off white foamy head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A fairly strong and balanced aroma of caramel malts and spicy hops. Bready malts with big hints of caramel, toffee, and biscuit. A fairly vibrant hop presence. Hops are very earthy and grassy with a light hint of citrus grapefruit and orange. Smells like an IPA with a heavy malt presence.
Taste: Hops are upfront with a nice mix of spicy floral and earthy hops with some notes of citrus orange, grapefruit, and apricot. Hops are well balanced by a big presence of bready malts. Good notes of caramel, biscuit, toffee, and crackers. Also a little pine. The balance here is really great.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy, somewhat chewy. Very smooth.
Overall: A very solid Red Ale. Has the hop presence of a IPA with a strong malt character to balance it very well.

$ 1.89/12 oz bottle at Wegmens in Jamestown, NY
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Very faint malty aroma
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to an irregular layer which lasts the duration of the beer.
Lacing spotty – rings of irregular islands of various size bubbles
Body coppery, hazy
Flavor of light malt and a hint of lemon
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation
This is a good example of an amber/red ale which meets the style characteristics quite well. The malt is not overly sweet or cloying but just right. I’m not a fan of this style, but this is one I could drink all day.
