Actually kind of surprised about the reviews this was actually tasty enough to order a whole pint of. Had it as part of the sampler.

A - Very good red ale a 1/2 inch of foam sticky white head. The beer itself is a bright amber brown clear in color.
S - Has a citrus hop smell strong but not enough to cover up a sweet malt base with caramel notes.
T+M - I found it quite good almost like a "Nugget Nectar" lite. Smooth hop profile, crisp light to medium body. and a sweet finish with some lingering hops.

Overall even though it was one of the best beers I only ordered a pint of it. Was not worth repeated purchase like a growler. A very tasty beer to have with feed.

Serving type: on-tap

@ Rock Bottom Stuart St., just before last night's Baroness show.

Amber with a thin, tight head. Great retention, foam smears my glass like a lengthy skid mark. Mildy toasted grain and a very mild citrus aroma. Tastes about the same with a mild caramel sweetness to balance mild hop bitterness (38IBU). I've used the word "mild" 4 times already and that sounds about right - it's a very James Taylor beer.

A red ale harkening back to the days of balance and restrained hopping. A very clean beer.

Serving type: on-tap
