3.13/5 rDev +0.3%
Bottle into pint glass
A – 1+ finger frothy off white head, reduced quickly to a crown with lacing nearly all around the glass, a clear brown gold 3.5
S – Relatively mild, roasted caramel malts and leafy florals 3.5
T – Caramel malts dominate, mildly spicy; hops give a slight citrus zest, bready with an odd bitter finish 3
M – More than moderate carbonation is perhaps a bit too much, milky mouthfeel 3
O – Squarely in the “decent” category which I do not seek beers out from again. I’m sure AHBC can improve upon this 3

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Clear copper-gold with thin off-white head. No lacing.
Smell: Cherry, caramel, and spicy & floral hops. Smells more like a Vienna Lager with a touch of citrus.
Taste: Very malty, semi-sweet, with cherry, toast, apple and caramel. The light hop counterbalance cuts the sweetness with spicy, floral and citrusy hops. Aftertaste has a strange sharpness to it.
Feel: Moderately high carbonation, light to medium body, fairly dry finish. Feels a little spritzy.
Overall: If it wasn't for the aftertaste, this would have been a fairly decent ale. As is, meh.

A - Pours a reddish orange with a thin layer of foam that quickly dissipates.
S - Sweet and slightly malty
T - Smooth. Only a slight hint of the malts. Surprisingly well balanced
M - Watery and fairly smooth
O - Not bad. Similar to a pilsner with extra malts. i wouldn't buy it, but I would drink it.

Part of a long ago delivered BOTMC, time to give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a nice waft of balanced malt and hops. Pours into my SAPP a deep amber color with a thin tan head. On the taste this brew hits up front with a thick mouthfeel followed by lots of caramels and some butterscotch all mixed in with a sight hop bitterness to temper the sweetness. Taste actually fades to a nice caramel sweetness in the finish while the hop bitterness fades into the bcakground. This is a very hearty and solid brew.

3.1/5 rDev -0.6%
12OZ bottle poured into a stemmed goblet.
Appearance- Dark copper color with active carbonation pours a nice one-finger head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a nice crown on the beer.
Smell- not a very strong smell of anything to be honest. Grain hints, no hop smell, but maybe some breadiness there.
Taste- A nice taste. Surprising that I couldnt smell much for hops, but they are certainly there on the taste, front and center. The grains are there balancing out the hop bitterness. This beer is listed as a Red Ale but that doesnt seem right to me at all. Tastes much more like a pale ale than anything.
Overall- A decent beer. I wouldn't turn one down if offered, but I'm not sure I would seek it out either.

2.25/5 rDev -27.9%
A - Golden brown with a thin head that leaves a lacing that sticks to the sides.
S - Light malt and hops, a little bit of citrus from the hops.
T - Malt flavor with a bit of hop bitterness in the end. All pretty light flavors.
M - Light mouthfeel with a good amount a carbonation.
O - It's not horrible, but could really use something to push beyond just being a very basic ale.

2.95/5 rDev -5.4%
Light copper body, good clarity, no carbonation streams, topped by two fingers of level just-off-white bubbles.
Slight bready aroma, but not really assertive enough.
Light sweet malt at the tip of the tongue.
Nice hop nip at the swallow. Clean finish.
Overall a not bad, not impressive ale.
