Poured from a growler into a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, carbonated, amber-copper coloring with a thin, sparse, filmy white surface coating. Aromas of rich, sweet caramel and nut, with a decent amount of roasty highlights. Some subtle hops presence at the tail end of the aromas, as well. Flavors are light on a smooth, light body. Roasty flavors initially, with a solid nut and caramel backbone. Malty and rich, with a touch of hops to clean everything off the palate. Mild bitter aftertaste that vanishes quickly for a clean, smooth finish. Very tasty brew.
Serving type: growler

I had this on tap at P-Sams in Torrington CT. I had seen Back East beers in the stores and had spoken to people about so I gave it a try. I started with a sample of this and a toasted Lager. Both were good but I went for the Ale. Served in a pint glass.
A - Copper color
S - I don't remember the exact characteristics, but it was pleasant.
T - I thought it had a nice full body taste to it, but not overpowering. It was a good red ale.
M - Some substance was there.
O - I was surprised to see it is only 5% ABV. I would have guessed closer to 6%. It had some substance to the beer, but it went down easy. I could have had more than2 with no problem. I left the restaurant thinking I may have to invest in a six of this.
Serving type: on-tap
