Bought a nice big bottle of this, poured in a pint

A: pours a nice clear amber-orange, with a thin off white head, has some lacing

S: has a nice autumn aroma, wheat, grains

T: toasted malts, wheats, grains, malty, light hops

M: very crisp, refreshing, to me it reminds me of fall, medium carbonation

O: A great ale, smooth, crisp, refreshing, light but still hearty and flavorful.

12oz bottle poured into a Kasteel goblet glass.

Appearance- Light orange in color with a half finger of bubbly white head that dissipates to about 1/8 layer. Lots of carbonation bubble flow to the top. Nice alcohol leg and very very good lacing for a Red ale.

Smell- Lots of malty smells. Sweet malt, bread malt, bisquits, carmel, and a small twinge of hops.

Taste- I get bready sweet malt goodness. Almost coffee like notes with a slight hop finish. The hop is the same they use in most of the New Belgium brews. An earthy roasted hop.

Mouthfeel- Medium body. I would prefer a bit more crisp bite on the finish.

Overall- A top notch red ale that is very good for malt and coffee lovers.
