Pours a dark ruby, with a superb head of fine, creamy carbonation. Very lovely and detailed lace.

Aroma is slightly musty and malty, with tones of toffee and caramel. Not bad, not great.

Taste is sturdy, with plenty of rich toffee and caramel notes. This one's full-bodied and quite tasty. A solid and enjoyable, if unremarkable, session red ale.

One of my favorite beers at my place of work. We have it on draft which definitely creates a better experience. It pours a very pleasant copper/red and has a sweet malty aroma. Its sweet aroma transitions nicely into a semi sweet flavor that makes for a very easy drink.

I remember really relishing in this beer before I discovered craft brews. Not so much now. This one pours a handsome copper red hue with a generous white head and nice lacing. The aroma is malty but unfortunately in the way of a mass produced beer. The flavor is light and sweet and refreshing but yet again carries the taste of the use of inferior grains(I.e. corn). Its a good beer and better than typical lawnmower beers....but not by much.
