A - Deep and clear ruby hued beer with a collar of light tan foam. No real head to speak of, but there is a little bit of lace.
S - Caramel, malt, and some butterscotch. Smells like a Worther's Original candy.
T - Super-sweet malt bomb with almost no hop bitterness at first. Some grassy hops pop up at the end. Slight copper penny note at the end.
M - Initially really sweet and malty, but saves itself from sugary hell by coming up with a grassy, slightly lemony, dry finish.
O - Not terribly interesting. A little to sweet, but that could make it a great gateway beer for people who aren't into craft brews.

Thanks to Jeremiah for the sample pint-can of this relatively new Iowan here in MN.
Pours red-amber with a short-lived head that dissipates leaving no lacing. Smell was earthy, Lipton tea. Taste is subtle sweetness, but primarily tea leaves and biscuit-malt. A noticeable hop oil bitterness comes in late around the edges of the tongue. Bitterness lingers. Medium mouthfeel, but lower than expected carbonation. Not great, but drinkable.. I did enjoy their IPA a bit more.

Appearance: Lives up to its name. It is a copperish red. A little cloudy. About 1/2 inch of cream colored foam. Almost no lacing at all.
Smell: There's some bread, a biscuit aroma. Don't smell much else.
Taste: Hops are on the back end and are not a strong part of the taste. There's a very slight bitterness. The most pronounced is a malted grain taste.
Mouthfeel: Lighter mouthfeel. Effervescent and tingly.
Drinkability: Very drinkable. Would go well with roasted corn, salsa, spaghetti with a tomato sauce. Might even be very good to put into a tomato sauce.
