Pours amber red with a slight haze. Thick, creamy, off-white head. 1.5 inches slowly dissipating. Sweet, malty nose, with caramel and yeasty notes. Medium light body and decent lingering Well-developed lacing. Toast, nuts, caramel, and pumpernickel bread on the palate. Very low on hops - would have enjoyed greater hop-malt balance. Tasty.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, grapefruit, orange zest, toast, floral, grass, brown bread, light nuttiness, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, floral, grass, light citrus, biscuit, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt flavors; with a light hop balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale style. Good balance and robustness of malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This one nearly is red, at the very least a dark red-orange. The sheer darkness gives it a certain thickness and opacity, though it's clear otherwise. On top, a tan head grows at firs to over two fingers, then settles to a firm, creamy foam about half a finger for the rest of the session. Lacing is left beginning with a hearty ring and following with solid patching.
This red has a pretty nice nose, favoring malts but with a touch of hops imparting earthy notes. Otherwise, there's a toasty note running through, a bit of nut, light caramel, and some leaf. It could use a bit more so it doesn't take as much effort to draw out.
The taste goes more leafy, with breads coming through as the strongest malt element, and toasty at that, while caramel does add a dose of sweetness. I don't have the can with me anymore to verify English varietals of either hops or malts or both, but there's an extremely distinctive tea-like note and minerality. A very light touch of some dark fruit flashes before an earthier component finishes it out. This is a more old-school red, to be sure.
The body is quite good, a firm medium heft supporting without overtaking it. Crispness is light but constant, allowing a thick sort of smoothness to fill it out.
