Pours reddish copper with a nice head. A full sheet of lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel, brown sugar - smells like it will be a sweet one - then an earthy tone comes in.

The taste is of caramel/toffee with some brown sugar. Sweet, but with an earthy hop bitterness and touch of toast to balance it.

It is creamy and smooth.

A nice example of a traditional red ale. Sweet, but with an earthy undertone, especially in the finish. I would love to try this one on cask!

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Color is a beautiful reddish amber with brilliant clarity and a tan head of white foam that quickly dissipates. The nose is bready malts, 12 grain bread, breakfast cereal, spicy-almost noble- herbal hop odors. Taste is subdued, soft nutty flavor, slightly muddy, not at all crisp; a charge of bitterness without any forward hop flavor. Very malty but not cleanly so. A drinkable session beer at 4.5% ABV, but muddled and dark tasting. A cleaner and clearer profile would go a long way in taking this from good to great.
