Pours clear blood reddish color with a creamy 2 finger tan head that faded very slowly, leaving excellent lacing coating the sides and leaves rings as it went down; a fine looking beer.
Smells of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, sweet malt, dark fruit like cherry and plum, light herbs, flowers, lightly toasted grains, floral hops and a mild boozy aroma.
Tastes sweet and malty up front, with caramel, toffee, dark fruit like cherry, apple, plum and orange, mixed with grapefruit, citrus hops, grains, brown sugar, cinnamon, floral hops, spices like pepper and coriander, dark rum, maple syrup and a light booze flavor that warms your belly after each swallow. This beer was sweet and malty up front, and then it got more complex and more hoppy as it warmed. The hops were accents and I really liked how smooth this was for such a malt heavy brew even with the slight alcohol nip.
Mouthfeel is buttery smooth, with mild carbonation, a medium body and a very sweet finish that was grainy and like it was coated with syrup.
Overall a tasty and enjoyable beer that is in an odd category altogether (red ale), yet to me was pretty good and very enjoyable. It’s a copper ale, whatever that is, and definitely worth trying.

Formally "the Kronik", this Amber Ale is poured from a 12oz. stub bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A - marketed as a "Rich Copper Ale", and there is truth in the marketing; penny red-orange, hardly any carbonation and a finger & 1/2 of fluffy cream head. Head retention is excellent with beautiful lacing all the way down.
S - rich caramel malts, toasted marshmallow, pine, and very light hops.
T - translates from the aroma well; not sharp at all; rich but not decadent.
M - smooth and creamy; very drinkable; a good session beer.
O - great beer, and one of my favorites of the style. A go-to during the week, and a great paring beer for many styles of cooking.
