@ 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.

This arrived wearing a nice red with slight glow to it, with only a ring of head. Lace was minimal but present.

The smell had good flavor but was slightly muted, caramel malts dominating. The taste was simple but pleasing, again dominated by caramel malts. Hops barely touch the tastebuds in its finish. Simple but effective and definitely drinkable.

First had: on tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA

Good basic red ale. Served in a 20oz. mug, a clear reddish amber with a finger of frothy white head that retained well and left quite a bit of lacing. Simple aroma, sweet biscuity malts, and light citrusy hops. Taste of sweet caramel malts, toasty, bready, subdued citrusy hops in the background; no big surprises, but quite solid for the style. Medium body and easily drinkable.
