Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Nice freshness and tartness, real zip. Nice smell. Would have liked a bit more heft and for it to have been a little boozier.

Aroma is the best thing here- floral & a bit exotic. Appearance is average. Flavor on the malty side; body chewy. Overall decent n drinkable.

Poured a hazed deep ruddy amber with a light tan head that doesn't last long but leaves a small amount of soapy lacing. The aroma is a mild blend of grain, fruit, and earthy hops. The taste is a little more robust, but follows in suit. The body has a pleasant thickness to it and and a good smooth finish. A tasty red ale.
