Had on tap at the Arlington, VA brewpub. Pours a mostly clear dark copper body with a tan head that laces the top of the glass. Aromas are predominately of grapefruit and orange citrus with sweet malts in the background. Taste is consistent with the nose and lingers in a way that is gratifyingly balanced. Medium body is appropriate to the flavor profile. Bravo.

Serving type: on-tap

on tap at RB westminster, co. pours a clearish brick red color into an english pint glass. excellent foamy off white head on top. the nose is dry red malts, hints of caramel and toffee, and a grassy mellow hop. the flavor is about the same, very balanced and actually more hoppy than anticipated. the malts are dry and semisweet, while the hops come in towards the finish with a nice bitter pop. one of the better beers in terms of flavor that ive had at a rock bottom. the feel is good too, medium in body, average in carbonation, and smooth in texture. this is a highly sessionable red ale because there isnt much residual sweetness, a burden of the style for me usually. overall a pretty darn good red.

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.
