Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Classic deep brown chestnut colored body, with red hues and hints all through the glass. Fairly clear. Head is a big soapy three fingers khaki and tan color, with a light top and sudsy lacing.

Malt action has a bit of nice grainy quality, but some off putting noticeable character. Sticky stanky yeast a little and gummy. Some mild sense of bile, with toasty light brown bred aromas. Not much caramel sense on this either.

Palate improves just enough. Mild light bodied and slightly wet character. Caramel and light bodied mild syrup comes out just a bit but hints towards grain and simple toast on the finish. Almost wet but not too bad.

Palate is saved by a bit of imperfect aroma on this brew, but as for the classic red American ale, there's not too much going on, but fairly drinkable to go, but not one I feel like returning to.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a mahogany color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light malts. Taste is balanced, caramel malts up front, some hops at the finish, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

12 oz.

Pours a clear amber brown, yellowish film for a head.

Smells of caramel and sweet biscuit malts.

Tastes of sweet buttered biscuit malts over caramel and brown sugar.

Medium body with a tingling carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very drinkable medium bodied ale, a bit on the malty side without a lot of balance. Worth trying but not spectacular.

The beer pours a slightly light tan head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a clear dark brown amber with some red notes.

The beer smell is very malty with a bit of hops to it. The malty notes come off as caramel and slightly burnt. The hops do make an appearance in the nose but are very light when compared to the malts.

The beer taste is just as malt forward as the smell with strong caramel notes and light hop notes. However, the hop notes are a bit stronger and are bitter. The hops come more at the end of the drink, rather than at the beginning.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. The body feels a little thick.

Overall, a decent beer and taste more like a very heavy bitter than anything else. The taste is certainly unique when compared to other beers of the same style. I'd recommend to try at least once.

Very light body. Taste was pretty bland if you ask me.
