Poured into a Lawson's tulip.
Appearance- Poured a very dark red, black cherry color. A nice 1/2 inch of frothy off-white head.
Smell - The smell is balanced between the hops and malts. Smells of toffee and caramel for the malt. A nice dose of earthy hops.
Taste- Very good. One of the better red ales that I have had. Very earthy hop flavors, pine, with subtle hints of the toffee and caramel. I can also taste notes of roasted nuts. The aftertaste even had a hint of tropical fruits, especially pineapple.
Mouthfeel- Balanced carbonation. Easy to drink. Has a nice bitter snap that is left in the mouth.
Overall - A very good red ale offering from Lawson's. I still prefer Lagunita's Mongo Red Ale, but nonetheless, a great beer.

@ Prohibition Pig
Mostly clear deep chestnut color with a little creaminess on top that shrinks to a patchy ring. Moderately hoppy nose...sort of dark and piney with a bit of tea, nuts, and malt to balance. Nice, balanced hoppy flavor: zesty, juicy citrus, increasing pine needle bitterness, some caramel malt mixes well with the "darker" hop character. Medium bodied and solidly bitter. I like this more and more as I drink it...

Big thanks to Steve for sending this bottle my way. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
Pours a dark reddish-copper color with a thin off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some amber and brown malt. Overall, quite malty for an amber. Some piney and resinous hops come along, plus a bit of citrus. Flavor loses those hops, and is a bit earthy and malty all at once. Not too much sweetness; more generic malt flavor. Medium body with moderate bitterness through the finish. A bit disappointing for a Lawson's brew.
