Pours a reddish-orange color with moderate head that never fully dissipates.

The smell is rather mild, but pleasant. Some hops and sweeter malts are noticeable.

Tastes very much like it smells, but with a feint touch of alcohol. Definitely tastes like a red ale.

The body and carbonation on this is on the lighter side and it certainly goes down the smoothest I've had from Lagunitas. Very pleasant mouthfeel.

Overall, a very solid red ale overall, and something I will definitely pick up again.
