I tried this for the first time tonight at my local Buffalo Wild Wings. I normally drink darker beers, but I wanted to try something different, and the menu made it look good. It looked good in person, as well; clean, with a classic caramel coloring. Visually very appealing. I have seen a lot of reviewers say their beer didn't have any head; the head on mine was somewhat smaller, but noticeable and attractive. The beer didn't have any strong scent to it, but it tasted very good. It's an American pale ale, and a good representative of such: very clean, very hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. It drinks smooth, with a slightly sweet finish. I thought it had a very nice mouthfeel; full, but not too thick, with a slight carbonation to it. It was highly enjoyable. I had a couple while waiting for my friends, and a couple more with my meal - pairs well with wings, which I guess is the idea that BWW is going for!

All in all, I'd say it's a very good beer. Not amazing, and probably not an actual game changer, but very tasty, and worth a try.

Buffalo Wild Wings is a personal favorite but I must admit that I had to laugh a little when they put a flyer in front of me that stated Red Hook had created a craft beer especially for them or at least buffalo wings. After drinking a couple I will further add that this is really good.

The color was rich amber with a thick almost meringue like head. The head was so fluffy and light that I had to fight through it to get to the beer.

The scent was malty, caramel malts and barley. Smooth semi-sweet and a touch bitter you can catch some hop aroma.

The taste is of strong caramel malts, barley, grains and an end of earthy, piney hops. Not necessarily sugary it is lightly sweet with some roasted textures. Very smooth and it has a nice balanced carbonation.

This is a nice surprise as it was appropriate for the food but offered a tasty craft beer experience.
