This new offering from Maumee Bay pours from the tap a clear medium red color with a light orange tinted head just over one finger high sitting around for a good while and leaving ample thick, patchy lacing in its wake.
This is a nicely balanced brew, perhaps slightly on the maltier side but well-balanced. The aroma features toasted malts with a touch of sweetness backed by floral hops. Not a stunner but a very good form of a style many BAs shy away from since the style itself is not "extreme" in any way.
The same balance is there in the flavor. This beer is both malty and hoppy, mingling a pleasant mix of toasty and sweet with an herbal note and ample hops, particularly floral but perhaps a touch of citrus element as well.
The body is medium with light to moderate carbonation and the malts giving this one a lift in richness and body.
I don't think this one's phasing out the Fallen Timbers (particularly since that one's an American Red) like Summit Street is taking the place of Glass City (Pale Ale). This one's a better red, though, and proving that MBBC's brewing as a whole is genuinely improving.
