look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: bottle

I poured this hopeful beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. Nice label. The beer poured a amber color with a nice tan head. looking good so far. The smell was caramel and nice. However the beer was lacking in the taste department. A little on the bitter side for me. I might try this one again if I could find it on tap.
