12 ounce bottle -> Foothills Brewing globe glass

A - pours up red and clear with a small off white head. There is minimal lacing and minimal retention.

S - sort of weak nose. Bread, nuts, not much else

T - very typical amber ale profile. Caramel malts give way to a dry not all that bitter finish. There is a bit of a yeasty taste involved.

M - not much of an aftertaste, medium thickness.

O - kind of blah. Not bad, certainly not great.

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.
