Tastes like liquid smoke. I would never order again. Not what you would expect from an "American ALE." Such a disappointment. Because it was so awful, I would never try anything by Thimble Islands brewery again either. Do not add smoky, stinky flavors to a beer.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Hues of ruby-red, copper, orange. lacing quickly disappears

S: malt and bread. Honey?

T: nice, smooth malts to start, hop bite i subtle. Bread almost on the end

M: medium bodied

O: I could drink this beer for days. It's really approachable. Not intense, just classic to the style.

3.65/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Dark copper color, poured with about 1/2 inch head, dissipated relatively quickly.

Smell - A bit of a bread-y nose, perhaps even a bit of smokiness.

Taste - Malty up front, slightly sweet, maybe even a little bit smokey up front, finishes nicely on the back end with the slightest hop kick. Well balanced flavor.

Mouthfeel - Great carbonation, relatively light body, but doesn't feel thin at all.

Overall - A solid offering I would definitely purchase again. I've heard great things about their IPAs, and hope to try them in a bottle or can in the near future.
