A-Deep clear ruby in the glass, one finger off white head with some lacing.

S-Great balance, lots of malt and caramel. But then it has a good deal of earthy grassy hops.

T-Quite malty, caramel, earthy grass dirt. Then ends with a nice bitterness.

M-Light not much carbonation.

O-A great red ale. One of the better ones produced the balance is very good with just enough hops to provide a nice kick to the malt base.

Picked up a couple of singles from Lets Pour back in early October for $5.50 each. Bottled on 8-27-13.

Beer poured amber red with a thin off white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is warming up nicely as the citrus hops and caramel malts are quite nice.

Taste is bready caramel malts that are nicely balanced by citrus hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and decently carbonated.

Overall this is a smackable brew. Bread malts and citrus pair up very well in this brew. Definitely try it if you get the opportunity.
