On-tap at 5 Points

A: The pour is amber in color with a finger or so worth of off-white head.

S: Fairly malt forward, primarily caramel malts with a hint of toasted bread. The hops are there, but in the background and are floral with a hint of citrus.

T: Some caramel, toffee, and perhaps even a bit of chocolate to go along with the bread. The hop bitterness is somewhat minimal, and there is only a light citrus note to the beer.

M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation to it.

D: I prefer my ambers/reds to be a bit more hop forward, but this wasn't too bad. Easy enough to drink and nothing bad to say about it.

Poured into anonic a clear rich amber/bronze with a thinner but well retained soapy-like white head,aromas were bready in character along with some mild caramel sweetness,the cascades used are pretty subdued.Flavors reminded me more of some of the PA ESB's I used to drink when in living in Philly,what I mean is its bready with subdued caramel and fruity malt notes with a decent shot of piney/citric hop in the finish.A little prickly in the mouth and not like alot of American reds but its decent.

Pours a deep golden, slightly reddish color with a nice head that packs its bags fast and leaves leaving hardly any lacing at all. Aroma is malty sweetness with hops, kind of citrusy and slightly piney. One of the better tasting red ales I have had as the hops is the star and balances well with everything else. Smooth going down and leaves a nice hop and malt aftertaste..
