3.53/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A-a dark amber with just a covering of white head that leave some lace around the top

S-malty, caramel, raisins

T-Am waiting for the beer to warm since right now it is all hops and almost no malt. As the beer warms the malt taste comes out more, but not as much as I expected based on the smell.

M-light to medium body, moderate amount of carbonation

D-Was excited to try this beer especially after smelling it, but didn't live up to my expectations. Flavors get lost in the cold and it is just a little too hoppy for my taste.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

Aroma: Light caramel vies with apple rind, and a moderate, slightly earthy hop presence.

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.
