Light brown, burnt orange in body with off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, bread, cinnamon, some lemon/grass hop scent as well. Tastes of lemon, grass, pine, caramel, cinnamon, bread. There's a strange nail polish flavor towards the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Strong, malty aroma has a firm overtone of dry hops, rather like a good IPA. Pours a clear mahogany, quite appetizing, with a thick, fine-bubbled, rather persistent pale wheat head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy, like an IPA, with malty, fruity and caramel notes rounding out the satisfying taste. Smooth texture has average body and plenty of fizz. Go ahead, hog one!

Poured from can into a tulip glass. A hazy dark reddish-brown with virtually no head even after a vigorous pour. Aroma at first is like the pineapple juice that comes out of the cans of pineapple chunks we use for baking, very pungent and fruity. Taste is similar but combined with a rich malty taste. Mouth feel is full, but has low carbonation. This beer definitely improves as it warms up. The maltiness opens up and the fruit becomes more complex. Overall, a pretty nice red ale. This is a sipping beer, take your time and let it warm up, then enjoy.

Poured from the 16 oz can into a snifter.
Pours a ruddy brown color with minimal head that dissipates.
Smells very malty, rich.
Tastes very, very malty with a good deal of hop bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is good.
All in all, a good red ale.
