Poured into an American pint glass.
A: Poured a nice amber color, with a thin head, but the head surprisingly lasted a bit and did lace well.
S: The nose was a nice 50/50 split between biscuit and hop bitterness. Couldn't wait to take a sip..
T: Nice and creamy on the initial hit of the palate, with the split between biscuit/roasted malt and hop bitterness nicely evident, and it dissolves to a nice hop flavor on the finish and aftertaste. Very well done.
M: Medium-bodied beer, that went down very easily. More carbo sensation than expected.
D: This is an excellent session beer.
Serving type: on-tap

$ 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.
