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.

This is an excellent Red Ale that borders an a Brown Ale. It has a smooth, slightly sweet flavor. More malts than hops here. There is a mild hop flavor, but very little bitterness. The malts have a nice caramel flavor with a bit of toastiness. Smooth and tasty. The smell and mouth feel are right on par with the flavor. It looks great in the glass too, it retains a 1/2" head and it a nice reddish amber. I like that it comes in a can also. Great job, I'll be adding this to my regular rotation.
