A: Pours a clear ruby red with a medium-sized tan head. Fades somewhat quickly. Decent lacing on the glass.
S: Quite malty with mainly caramel and bready malts. A little bit of herbal and fruity hops.
T: A little herbal and grassy hops up front with a bit of caramel. Toasted bread in the middle and then fades out with graininess and some tea.
M: Medium bodied, decent carbonation. Not watery at all for 4.4%
O: An unremarkable but decent red ale. Simple and drinkable while staying true to the style. Sessionable for sure. I quite enjoyed it to be honest.
Serving type: bottle

Had a 14-ouncer on tap at Hadlock Field, home of your Portland Sea Dogs, in Portland, Maine.
Appearance: Pours an attractive amber with a frothy off-white head that sticks around for a long time. Lacing is heavy. Looks good; happy to be drinking this on a frigid April day.
Aromas: Nose is kind of faint, but there's a a note of maltiness and some caramel along with hop bitterness.
Taste: Very good red ale. Tastes include caramel, malt sweetness, toffee and some earthy backbone. Really good.
Mouthfeel: This has a good, sturdy body and an approachable flavor profile. Easy on the palate. Kind of surprised the IBU is so high; not super bitter.
Overall: I love a good red ale, and this is one. Really tasty set of flavors and enough complexity to keep you interested. I was bummed when it was finished, but with the low ABV, it wouldn't be too wild to have another.
Serving type: on-tap
