Bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: Lighter amber, and fairly clear. Not a lot of retention or bubbles around. Decent ring around the edge of the glass.
Smell: Some sweet malt aromas along with grain and husk wafts. As it warms, some citrus makes itself apparent.
Taste: Nice balance between darker malts, some chocolate, and lingering husk flavors, all amidst some decent fruitiness and balanced hops by the end.
Mouthfeel: Lighter to medium-bodied, but a good crisp nature to the brew by the end. At first it may seem slightly watery, but then the carbonation does its work and rounds everything off.
Drinkability: A good and solid Red that I would go to again. Definitely a nice session before the summer, and probably one even better for the fall.
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
