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.

Pours a clean orange-ish to copper color with an off white head. In the aroma, a mellow caramel roasted malt. In the the taste, caramel roast and a grapefruit citrus rinds. A small hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry grapefruit rind in the aftertaste. Kind of standard in the beginning and big hops in flavor, quite nice.

Off tap at the brewery this beer was a clear, bright orange color with one finger of khaki-colored head. The retention was good but the lacing scant. The aroma was acceptable, a light blend of caramel malt, bread and some hints of nuts. The flavors were quite similar with the sweet malt, bready malt and caramel malt combining nicely to create the distinctive sugar cookie flavor typical of the style. Baked goods! The nuttiness and a medium bitterness were also detected on my pallet. The body was medium, the carbonation good and the mouthfeel average.
