Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date.
A- Pours a dark reddish amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before shrinking to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.
S- Smells almost like a red ale the way the hops play off the malt. Sweet cereal grain malt with a dash of hop fume.
T- The flavor is also more toward a red ale profile as the malt weighs in with the bready characteristics but not so much that it gets in the way of the subtle yet solidly present hop bitterness. The only thing I don't like is the watery aftertaste but there's enough sweet/bitter duality here to keep my interest.
M- Quenching and somewhat slick with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- Not something I would drink all the time but certainly serviceable if it happened to be the only option.

Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap

Purchased: Single from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville
A: Pours a dark copper-colored beer with a nicely sized white head. Very good lacing and head retention. Quite a bit of floating sediment is seen in the glass -- I'm guessing hop particles?
S: Aromas are pretty light, with a hint of grassy and floral hops and not much else.
T: The taste is mainly of hop bitterness, with no malt character. The bitterness has an unpleasant astringency to it.
M: The carbonation gives this a crisp mouthfeel with a medium body. The finish has hoppy bitterness and an aftertaste of the astringency noted before.
O: Overall I wasn't too pleased with this, my first beer from Lonerider. It seemed like a one-trick pony with bitterness as the only noticeable trait and marred by an off-taste.
