Nice, rich red/golden color. Not much head on the pour. Beer itself is dry, citrusy with pine aftertaste. Mouthfeel has the taste holding in the back of your cheeks for a while, but not too strong. A good sipping beer; nothing special, but tasty. Probably an autumn beer, not a mid-winter one as I'm trying.

12oz bottle (batch code 07 12) poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Coppery orange with hints of red - maybe a tad murky on the table and slightly hazy. Not very bright for a red. Off white head upon pouring died back to a thin skin all the way across the top and a slightly thicker ring at the edge of the glass. Some strands of lacing here and there.

Smell: When first poured, mostly malt with caramel notes. As it warms up, not a lot of smell - bit of the malt, but muted. With a swirl I can pick some hops that are grassy, citrus, and piney combined.

Taste: Most of the flavor seems to come at the end with this beer. Hard to pick out much of anything at first, then a quick note of malt. The ending has tea-like bitterness, a bit of grapefruit citrus, toasted malt and cracker. Not really amazing in flavor, but definitely refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Despite not making a lot of noise upon cracking the bottlecap, the beer has lively carbonation on the tongue, just south of fizzy. Some lingering hop oils and stickiness on the teeth, but otherwise a bit watery.

Overall / Drinkability: It's just okay. Nothing amazing. I find one is enough and I'm done.

12 oz out of a six from mcdougal's.

A - pours a murky reddish brown , with an odd green hue. Little to no head on the pour, thin lace.

S - malt toffieness, mild sourness, bread

T - More malts and bread, some mild hops and grains. Slight hints of smoke and chocolate. Pretty tasty, but nothing overly complex or noteworthy here. Fruit and some sweetness appear as the beer warms.

M - a little on the thin/watery side, but it has a good level of carbonation.

O - drinkable red/amber ale that is recommended to try, but doesnt quite hold up to some others in this category. Interested in trying some others from this brewery.

Pours reddish-copper with a finger of head that dissipated quickly but left some lacing. Considerable amount of malt in the nose. Malt profile is solid upfront, but it thins out on the finish. The finish is slightly bitter, but it is definitely a diminuendo instead of a crescendo.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy brown hue with a frothy, white, 2-finger head that quickly dissipates in to a wispy lace leaving a nice trail down the glass.

S: Not a huge nose here. Malty scent with a slight hoppy background.

T: Smooth malty flavor that is a little more sweet than bitter. Finishes slightly hoppy.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent red ale – nothing special – or anything I would grab again. But it was enjoyable and easy to drink.

Pours an amber color with reddish highlights. Weak off white head, and minimal lacing on my snifter. The nose is bread, toast, caramel malt, and slight hops. Not bad. Taste is the same profile, but it's a little watered down in the taste department. Feel is medium, with malt roast coming through the most. Overall, an ok beer with several flaws. Cheers.
