12oz. bottle into a pint glass .
A-Pours a clean and bubbly red color, a touch amber and a touch of brown. A 1-plus finger head that tapers to a lasting film leaves some spotty lacing.
S- Toasted bready malts, spicy hops.
T- Big bready malt and grain backbone. A hint of chocolate and caramel.
M- Malts and oats give this brew body. It's crisp and carbonated. None of its flavors show any sweetness, it finishes dry and mild.
O-This beer looks big and flavorful and it just about measures up. It could use a flavor kick but does not suffer from the 'sticky-sweet' Red Ale stigma , a big plus. Smooth and easy drinking.

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.
