12 oz.

Pours a mostly clear amber red, yellowish head retains as a lacing.

Smells of brown sugar, buttered biscuit malt, and a mild nutty hop.

Tastes of buttered biscuit malt with a nutty dryness and a light dry vegetal hop bitterness.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Above average ale, good flavor, very nice aroma, and drinks easy. Nothing spectacular but decent.

Served in a perfect pint glass

A - This beer is amber with golden highlights. When held to the light I see chunks of suspended yeast. It is topped with two inches of tan head.

S - I get a nice balance of caramel malt and floral hops.

T - It starts out with a slights caramel/toffee taste and finishes with a mild bittering.

M - Medium

O - Of the Upland sampler that I purchased, this is sadly the best. It is an average red ale. I will not be seeking anything from Upland unless it is a lambic.
