3.8/5 rDev +7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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

A-Pours a hazy copper color. A moderate layer of soft foam sits top the beer. Lighter rings of lacing.
S-Mild yet pleasant. Malt stressed nose. Caramel and sweet, toast.
T-Again, it is soft and far from hoppy but it seems to work in a certain essence. Caramel and sweet toastiness. A light layer of bitterness on the back end without much hop-derived flavors.
M-It has some body to it. Even during a hot Summer night these went down quite willingly.
O/D-Simple, sweet and somewhat refreshing. Sometimes a mild and overall rather agreeable beer just hits the spot.
Serving type: can
