Pours a dark copper tinted red, clear with cap of dense slightly off white bubbles, moderate retention. Scent brings toasted malts, light roast, light caramel, earthy and grassy hops. Toast comes through in taste, light roast and chocolate along with mild caramel, bitter earthy, grassy and lightly spicy hops. Dry, moderate carbonation, smooth. Solid intro to a new local brewer in a style not approached by many... nice to have a beer not overly hopped once in a while.

Handsome coppery red in the tall glass. Lovely head. Malty and rich with a nice sweet kiss. The carbonation in the mouth is just as inviting.

Roasted malt with a caramel taste. Browned biscuits and hops. A nice beery, malted smell. Just bitter enough with a very restrained hoppiness. Sprightly taste underlain by a mellow malt. One of the better Red/Amber beers I've had, and if rated as an Irish Red it must be the best of that mangy breed. Sensationally drinkable.

Had this on tap at Earth Bread + Brewery in Germantown. [Transcribed from notes - 05/29/2012 visit.]

I may have a shallow review of it but it was pretty good. I didn't think I was in the mood for a red but a sample brought me around.
