Dark coppery amber in the Ciney snifter with a modest head. Spritzy enough in the mouth. Fruity yet dry. something like cherries and wheat cereal. Aroma is slight and hard to define, but unobtrusive.

This is quite tart. I'd even describe it as a sourish sensation that I'd associate with well-charred grain, but this is something different. Even a vegetable flavor, like a summer squash with some artichoke cooking water. Some very dry toffee with an odd woody, grainy taste.

Refreshing, though, and an improvement over the usual Irish Red Ale, which is what the brewer call this. IBUs rated at 25. From the 32 oz jug purchased at Community Coop Market in Bellingham.

Served in straight pint glass.Poured a very deep brownish red color with about a half-inch of tan head that had lightly moderate retention and OK lacing.

The aroma was solidly malty, rich and with a certain earthiness, and was topped by some crisp hops. The flavor profile was pretty similar, solid, but not heavy, malts and just the right amount of tangy hops to provide a counter-balance.

The body was good, fuller than the average example of the style, but still not weighty or thick. Drinkability was smooth and easy, I could have a few of these without getting bored. Overall, a nice take on a style that often lacks personality, this one is certainly worth your time when you see it.
