Pours a clean, deep red-amber, with a very limited amount of carbonation. Lacing is also quite minimal on this pouring.

Nose is caramel maltiness and a snap of lovely floral hops. A good start, for sure.

Taste is similar -- a fine melding of a session-worthy, toasty amber or red malts ale with an abundance of citrus and floral hops.Very solid, enjoyable, and worthwhile, as everything from Carson's has been so far.

Draft pint at Map Room.
Dense, rich and creamy foam, murky reddish body, long lasting head retention.
Dried apricot and sweet malt aroma, malt dominates.
Dry bitterness atop a significantly burly malt body, with a mild undercurrent of citric hoppy fruitiness. Some earthy spice as well. Smooth and medium bodied with a significant malty heft to it. Overall pretty good, interesting to see this show up here.

It wasn't bad but it's not breaking any barriers here. Kind of a cross between their red wheat and an IPA. A beer that doesn't know exactly who it wants to be.

Would not seek out again, probably would not purchase either.
