Not a bad Ale, though not my favorite beer either. Had a semi sweet malty taste to it with a slight rust finish with maybe a hint of cinnamon in there. The taste was also a bit less strong then I had hoped as well. Appearance was slightly red. The beer was fairly carbonated and the bubbles were noticeable. It was fairly drinkable though and I could drink a couple.

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.
