3.05/5 rDev -20.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
A: Dark, cloudy red with a reddish white head of 2-fingers. Retention is very nice. Lacing is good. Solid appearance.
S: Fruit, sweet caramel malt, even some hops. Not a bad smell at all. Hops smell flowery and fresh.
T: Dark fruit, some banana, and caramel dominant, backed by a nice bitter hop flavor. Cloying from the fruit. Aftertaste is a toasted bread flavor, and the bitterness stays. It's a little too sugary and cloying for me.
M: Oily, medium-heavy bodied, nice carbonation. Non-astringent.
D: Drinks alright, but if it wasn't so darn cloying, it would go down much easier. I don't think I can finish it.

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.
