appreciably dry, thats my favorite part of this red, its not sweet like some american ambers, definitely more of an irish dry type, which i think is appealing in this beer, which is medium bodied but full of carbonated life. decent hops on it too, bitter enough but real drinkable. intentionally safe i reckon, but its the good safe, the kind thats born from an understanding that your recipe is really pretty polished. medium bodied and fluffy in feel. magically refreshing when cold, but less nice when it warms up, so drink it quick. the carbonation, which starts brilliantly, is also constantly depreciating. there may be a touch of interesting grain in here, id guess flaked oats in some proportion, it has that softness. davidson has proved to me this week that their beer is all solid, but a step below incredible, maybe a step and a half, but i havent had one i wouldnt drink again.

I had this poured from tap, into a frozen glass, too cold to taste, too cold to enjoy. The next one was served in the same glass and it was good. Nice head that left some lacing. Copper colored ale that was not overwhelming in the mouth, the oats are the predominant note in this beer and I could taste the breadiness. I enjoyed it.

Enjoyed at Longfellows Inn in Saratoga Springs, NY, this red ale is a deep copper-red color with an off-white, decent sized head and very full lacing. The aroma offers a nice malt-apple-whisky medley. The tongue picks up a pleasant lemon apple-wheat with nutmeg-malt with a great dry wood finish. Better than average for this style. The body is medium light with modest carbonation and mellow, crisp feel. Very much a decent brew and worth a try.

Bottle purchased at Oliver's Beverage in Albany, NY. Freshness dated. Pours reddish brown with medium head. Malty aroma. Thin body - biscuity flavor - didn't seem quite balanced in terms of flavor. No strog aftertaste. A very average Red Ale - glad I didn't buy a 6-pack.
