Poured from 22 oz. bottle into tulip. Appears to be hand bottled. Has the classic "homebrew cap"

A: Pours a deep copper with a smallish 1 finger white head that sticks around.

S: Lots of malt in the smell. Slight bitterness from the hops.

T: More malts in the taste. Cardboard. Skunky hops at the end.

M: Watery and thin. Lacks carbonation.

O: I'm disappointed with this beer. I had the CEO stout from Right Brain and thought it was pretty good. This beer just lacks in every area. I'll probably try their others in the line up. Maybe I got a bad bottle. But I cant see myself buying this one again.

Poured from the bottle a dark hazy rust color with two fingers of frothy beige head.

Aroma of tart ripe fruit and white wine grapes and a thin whiff of caramel malts.

The taste delivered the tartness of the aroma with canned cherries and white wine and to a lesser extent, caramel malts. The tartness lingers thru the finish.

Medium bodied and quite dry with a lighter carbonation.

An interesting amber ale from Right Brain. The tartness was an unexpected surprise as I thought this one might be a malt bomb. I'm glad it was not.
