A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and is too dark to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is rather malty with flavors of grain and has ever so subtle hints of caramel and sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite malty, but doesn't have much in the way of interesting flavors from them.

Poured from an undated 12 oz bottle. This red ale is actually more brownish-red with a murky appearance. A fluffy and slightly off-white head quickly dissipated leaving plenty of lacing.

The aroma was perfumy sweet with a strong, fruity almost wine like quality; no hop aroma detected.

The flavor begins with a slightly sour and sweet flavor with faint hints of molasses. A very slight hoppiness teases the palate. The taste has a slight candy flavor with an almost puckering sourness lingering in the mouth; not altogether unpleasant, but distracting.

The mouthfeel is decent with a light and soft feel on the palate with restrained carbonation.

This amber was just okay. I believe the ale is not the freshest and lost its hop profile. I would like to have a fresher bottle or even better, on tap.

A - A deep caramel color with a creamy and bubbly head. Big and rich head to being with and dissipated but maintained a quarter of an inch throughout.

S - Sweet caramel and malty notes.

T - Sweet and malty with a crisp and nicely balanced bitter finish.

O - This is my favorite from MPBC and I remember this being one of my gateway microbrews at Mountain Town in MP circa 2003. Try this brew!

This is a big malty and chalky mess. It isn't pleasant to drink. And the only interesting factors about it are the ones that are completely turning me off to this beer. I had high hopes that this might be the saving grace after some disappointing beers from this brewery, but it was not meant to be it seems.
