Amber pour with a nice red hue. Very nice head and lasting lacing. Nose is of toast, nut and caramel sweet malt. Light bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor profile is a laid back blend of malt flavors that ends up being nicely complex and balanced. Like the nose, toast, nut and caramel float over a slight sweetness. The finish is smooth and at the end, Goldings are detected. A solid red ale.

The beer comes in this beautiful brownish color with crimson/ruby coming through in the light. Super hazy. Watch out on the pour because it's a fizzy bomb.

The aroma has tons of toasty malt, a nuttiness, a dried apple peel, a sweet breadiness and caramel malt. Deep in there, there's a bit of maple syrup sweetness.

The flavor follows with that punch of dried apple and apple/pear peel on the front. It's almost tart. Then tons of toasty malt along with some caramel. The finish has this beautiful woody noble hop note. Almost a smokiness on the finish as well.

There is tons of carbonation to clean up the beer with its medium to light body. It's extremely drinkable.

This was a huge surprise to me. A great representation of the style. So simple. So drinkable. A really representation for a traditional great beer.
