I poured this beer and it has a reddish color body with a small tan head to it. The smell is a little sweet and has a malt aroma also. The taste has a little sweetness and malty notes and just a bit of hops on the end of the tongue. Mouthful is smooth and overall a good beer. I could see my self drinking this with some fish and chips in a pub.

This has to be the most underrated beer in the entire Sam Adams library, and I'm not shy about how much I LOVE Sam Adams! There's just something about this beer, how perfectly red it is, how it's not bitter, not boring, not too sweet, and has an overall after taste that is very hard to describe from a novice reviewer, but veteran beer drinker. I really hope Sam Adams brings this back, and doesn't discard it like they do with so many other good beers, like Mighty Oak Ale.

If they sold 12 packs of this beer, I would have it regularly in stock!
