12 oz bottle courtesy of Papollo. Poured into a traditional pint glass. Pours a hazy rustic copper orange. The haze isn't ultra thick, and there is a slight head yield of light yellow foam that sits on top for the duration of the glass.
Mostly caramel, and some faint orange and light citrus. The scent has a little bit of grapefruit in it. Regardless, it doesn't pop out of the glass, and takes a while to decipher between the different components.
The taste is rather caramel laden with a nice toasted flavor, and some clove tastes as well. There is a touch of sweetness, and slight orange flavors. Nothing spectacular, but an easy drink nonetheless.

This is one of my favorite beers. This brew is incredibly refreshing. Though it isnt the easiest to pour from the tap, the appearance is amazing. It is a nice dark amber color. The head floats atop- an aesthetically pleasing addition. When it hits my mouth I think caramel. The toasted carmel hops are prime. It is a first class amber ale that all should experience.

Appearance: Clear deep copper in color, with a moderate, dense, with medium-sized, dense off-white head, modest carbonation, and thick, glass-coating lace.
Aroma: Light caramel vies with apple rind, and a moderate, slightly earthy hop presence.
Taste: Opens with prominent toasted and caramel malts. As the taste progresses, spicy hops begin to assert themselves, and a faint note of alcohol appears as well. Finishes with a lingering, spicy hop note and caramel and toasted hops as a backdrop.
Mouth feel: Smooth and soft, fairly full, with only slight carbonation noted.
Drinkability/notes: Solid and very well-crafted, a pleasing and very drinkable red ale.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, sealed with a pry-off crown. Served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.
