Honestly, I think this bottle was probably stale. The problem with this is that I bought it at the brewery, kept it chilled and only had it for two weeks. Skunky, metallic and very disappointing. What I had tasted on tap there was actually good. I would have this again at the brew pub, but I'll think twice before picking up a bottle. Their bottles do not have a bottling date on them.

Pours clear amber, with golden highlights. A light khaki head leaves tons of lacing from the ring that forms around the glass.

Smells tang, malty, a bit roasty.

Taste is similar to smell, a bit of roasted malts, and tangy hop. Nothing that sticks out, but not horrible.

Texture has a bit of bite, not as smooth as a red should be, imo. Feels a tad thin, but is easy to drink.

I have been curious about this company, but this beer doesn't inspire me...

DOA

Lots of tan head and residual foam. You have to be REAL careful how you pour this beer so teh foam doesn't overflow. Semi-sloudy copper and bronze amber color. Can't make out any bubbling.

Nice toasty malts combine with spritzy, astringent hops for a clean and malty aroma.

Flat and thin palate from start to finish. Good toasted malts and earty, astringent, almost lemony at times, hopping. Pretty simple overall. Finish is bitter and slow on the fade with some heavily toasted malts.
