On tap in a tall mug on 3/5/10 at Fox & Hound Pub, Albuquerque, NM
Medium brown with tobacco burst hues. Clear. Thin head with skim retention. Not much lace.
Lots of floral hops in the nose. Smells kind of juicy. Light candied notions. Earthy hops, too. Caramel malt is prominent though there is subtle breadiness.
Tastes plenty earthy with a showing of pine bitterness. Dry. Smooth caramel and bread. Manages to avoid being too sweet. Strangely, there are mild hints of fruit a slightly roasted twinge. Perhaps Scottish malt? Unsweetened chocolate and a hint of espresso toward the back end.
Medium-full body with an even, coating feel that lingers on the finish. Carbonation offers moderate agitation.
Overall impression: quite good. Happy to have tried it.
Serving type: on-tap

New Mexico, to Tempe, to Orange County. I didn't realize that I had bought two bottles (one from two different stores) when I brought my $120 beer haul to California. Here's 12 ounces, and on to the beer:
Red...dark red colored. So dark that it looks crimson. A low head is formed on the head with just a few dots of lace sticking to the glass. The aroma at first has a touch of dry cardboard. Much of that clears up and underneath comes a pleasing hop aroma, pine, esters, passionfruit, and toasted sugar in small doses. Complex indeed. More hop forward than malt is the aroma, so there is some irony to taste a beer that's more malty than hoppy. Malty, fruity, toffee. Soft hop leaves and tea help diversify this red ale. Somewhat bitter like many IPA's, but sweeter. A bittersweet flavor lingers in its aftertaste of this medium bodied, low carbonated beer.
Yes, I like this one. Now I'm glad that I "accidently" bought a second bottle :-)
