From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Toast, Caramel, Savory

The brewers intention here is a full on malt bomb, brimming with toasty grain and a thick caramel backing this is quite the Red Ale even though our palates are not being assaulted by hops. Exceptionally clean and easy to quaff back for a slightly bigger brew.

I don't usually go for a red ale, but decided to buy some for family members that like reds and decided to try one. I was pleasantly surprised by smoothness and really enjoyed this beer. (187 characters)

Poured a bright amber-brown-red with a faint hint of haze. Two-finger tan, creamy, persistent head, that settled in at 1/16th inch. Hop, spice and caramel nose. Medium body, great lingering malt notes with suggestions of toast, sweet biscuits, the woods, and some citrus and pine. Totally moreish! Well-balanced hops and malt, leaning into the malts. Some light, yet distinct lace forms. A definite re-purchase. (411 characters)
