2.9/5 rDev -15.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured from the tap into a pint glass.
The color is dark red, almost maroon with a finger or two of foamy white head that last for a short while. Not much in the way of lacing on the glass.
The smell is caramel with a slight toffee flavor and reminded me of a sundae without the ice cream.
The taste is has a nice malty flavor that is sweet with more caramel and toffee flavors. A creamy somewhat chocolate flavor is just on the edges and is only there ever so slightly.
The feel of this beer is medium and goes down well. Not a bad red ale, it pretty drinkable but is a little too creamy at times but overall not a bad beer.
Serving type: on-tap

A: A deeper amber color. Very, very clear. Minimal head but pretty decent lacing.
S: Malts dominate the nose. Bready, caramel, and toast are adjectives that all come to mind.
T: Once again the malts are the forefront of the beer. I feel like the focus is more on the bready/toasty characteristics , which personally I like, and they avoided that generic overdone gummy caramel character that far to many ambers have. That being said there's a bit of caramel but its not overdone.No real hops to be found which is somewhat of a let done but it still does a good job focusing on the malt. Perhaps a touch of fruity esters. Bitterness is appropriate.
M: Fairly low carbonation which is nice and makes it easy drinking. The body medium.
O: A good beer. It would have been much nicer with some decent hop profile, even the typical cascade would have been nice. None the less a good transition beer and its pretty easy to drink a few.
Serving type: bottle
