12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of hops, grapefruit and stale bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Grassy, herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Taste was improved as beer warmed up. Overall it is a good brew

Initially sweet caramel malts with a bitter hoppiness that has a bite to it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

LOOK: Classic Hazy Copper Red Ale with Big 1 Inch Foamy Beige Head that last through-out, Excellent Lacing that Completely Coats the Glass

SMELL: Hops, Carmel, Citrus, Grains and Barley are All in the mix

TASTE: Very Smooth and Creamy Mild Bodied Ale with an Excellent Blend of Bready Malt and Grains, has a very Faint Bitterness that lingers.

FEEL: Creamy, Minimal Carbonation, Pallet Faintly Dry after the Swallow

OVERALL: LOVED the Classic Look and Enjoyed the Taste....Might have benefitted from a bit more of a Hoppy Aroma and an increase in Carbonation.....But All-In-All I ENJOYED it!
