2.63/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours a clear, amber/brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a pungent/butter aroma. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of butter, pungent citrus, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of hops. Overall, this would have been a decent brew, but the butter aroma/flavor had a dreadful effect.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a clear reddish/orange color. A small white head forms, and recedes to a ring. No lace.
S: Toasted caramel, that is slightly sweet. Fruity esters that I get in all their beers. Orange rind, light lemon.
T: Follows the nose with fruity flavors up front. A nice toasted caramel sweetness. Some floral hops in the finish.
M/D: A medium body that is crisp and clean. Easy to drink, one I could have a few pints of.

Again with the fruity esters, but it works better here. Nice flavoring hops finishes everything off which I enjoy.

Serving type: on-tap
