Bright copper orange with a very sticky off white head. Tons a great lacing.
Smells of piney hops and caramel malts straight away. Touch of citric bitterness in there. A sweet sticky bun note is mixed in there as well.
Taste is balanced with the piney hop and slight citric notes. The malty caramel and oats come in as soon as the hop notes recede. There's a burnt sugar note on the backend. It's a little light in body.
Mouthfeel is light and mildly carbonated. Feels like it could be a touch more round.
Overall this is a good red ale, and one that could be session able. It won't weigh you down but also won't overwhelm your taste. I would definitely try this again, only maybe in bottle form out of curiosity.
Serving type: on-tap

Bought 2 cases after my local distributor had these onsale a few weeks back. First, I noted that on the label this beer proclaims to be a "hoppy red ale". By today's standards, it's not all that hoppy. Sure it has some hop nose to it, but it's pretty tame it terms of today's hop forward ales. With that aside, it's a solid beer all around. The malt bill is very well put together. It has some nice bready & light toasted character. Has a wonderful versatility to it that pairs well with almost any food. Had this one with steak, grilled pork, chicken, salmon, etc. This one holds up well to just about anything.
As I mentioned, the hops are pretty tame and they lend themselves a nice spicy character. The beer feels medium-full and is nicely carbonated. Brewed pretty clean with no apparent off-flavors. Overall, a very solid beer. Enjoy it as a nice solid red ale and don't be too letdown by a lack of insane hoppiness.
