22oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem. $4.99 Pours very dark amber, really brown with a large,rocky lighter tan head. Nice malt driven aromas..chocolate,biscuits, and caramel ..a little earthy. More resiney hop bitterness in the taste but the malts still dominate..caramel,treacle..slightly burnt bread..very nice. Great thick and smooth palate to this one..goes down a treat. Overall excellent amber.

Poured from tap at Coalition brewery.

Zounds! This is a great red ale! This beer is serious business. Pours with a red-amber hue with a good head and moderate retention.

The nose is nice with fresh grass, earth, fruit, and hops. There is also a touch of funk there too. The palate expands the aromas into a magical concoction of red ale deliciousness.

The texture is fantastic! It's probably the best thing about it. It's rich and layered without seeming too heavy. The finish is decently long and enjoyable. This is the best NW red ale I have had. Period.

Worthy! Oh so worthy!

Serving type: on-tap
