Poured from into a pint glass.
A- Nice dark red color. Minimal amount of tannish/white foam, doesn't last very long.
S- Toasted malts and hops are the most evident in the nose. There is a good bit of caramel / burnt sugar.
T- The taste is very malty and nutty. The hops blend very well here, Cascades I believe. This is not an ultra-sweet red, but is definitely what I consider to be a "malt bomb." Think big toasty malts and caramel, with hops in the background.
M- About average on the mouth for this type of malty brew. Light to medium body with just the right amount of carbonation.
O- This is what I consider to be a great seasonal beer. It is not extreme, it is not incredible. It is just very drinkable for the fall season. It is a bit different than most of the others out there, in that there are at least initially some noticeable hops. I plan to drink a few more of these before they are gone this year.
