3.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The poured a darker red than expected, but produced a nice off-white head that was well retained and left some lacing. A nice cap remained throughout the beer.

The smell was bready with a stronger than expected piney hops aroma to it.

The taste was good, but I think that the pine hops were a bit overwhelming. Seemed to be overly hoped for an amber/red ale.

The beer had a medium feel to it, good carbonation, clean, crisp and very easy to drink. Overall, while I thought it was a bit hoppy for the style, still a very good beer.

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

The beer is light amber, a bit hazy, has a warm off-white head which leaves little lacing but has good curtains.

The smell is malty, toast with loads of citric notes, grape-fruit, lemons and other fruits.

Tasting initially of bread, some raisins, the grapefruit juice and peel.

Medium small carbonation, rather thin and refreshing, a light dry finish.

A bit thinner than expected but in all well done, hoppier than I expect an amber to be.
