Start the car. The lights are about to turn amber. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Past the alley where thieves and pimps sell corporate brews and good men soak it up like vermin, blissful in their ignorance. Past the jackhammers who want their three and a half percent. Keep going. Towards that golden orb, the size of Zeus’s ass, that hovers over this crazy town. Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink amber, and drive like a bastard towards that saintly light.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse brewing co pint glass

A: Pours beautiful slightly hazy deep reddish amber with a frothy light tan head that settles and laces well.

S: Fruity, floral, light citrus, some caramel malt sweetness.

T: Light citrus hops, some fruity maybe even berry notes, a little pine, backed with bready and toffee malt sweetness,

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but not bad.

Poured from the bottle into a sniffer. Probably my favorite red ale to date. Not a high ABV but loads of malty flavor makes up for it. Notes of carmel, malty sugar, toffee, and fruitless are tasted. There is crisp slightly bitter aftertaste that balances this beer out excellently. Had this beer after about two years of aging as well as new. Both tasted great with the aged one being more malty as expected. Seriously loved this beer and is highly recommended.
