I was in the middle of a term paper when I felt the craving for something malty... it hit the spot and moved me to review:
A nice amber, transparent hue with lots of small bubbles. Head's a few shades tanner than white and pours to a frothy one finger; looks like the foam on a cappucchino. Head dissapates to a frothy ceiling no taller than a pinky's width (if that).
If you're curious what a caramel malt smells like, take a whiff. There's maybe a faint undertone of citrusy (lemon) hop influence. But overall, I'm expecting a malty experience.
Chewy malt that's semi-sweet, but not sugary. I also catch a taste of toasted grain. There's a nice hop finish, which is succeeded by a slight burnt-malt flavor.
It has a buttery mouthfeel, and the bubbles gently massage my tounge right before the hop finish kicks in.
NCBC is becoming one of my go-to's. This is another relaxing, very drinkable beer. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a six of Red Seal and make a night of it.

$ 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.
