Pours a hazy copper amber color with a nice big 2 finger foamy light tan head that was packed with bubbles and faded very slowly, leaving good lacing with foamy rings as it went down.

Smells malty with a mix of citrus hops, then some caramel, herbs, sweet floral notes, bread and brown sugar; pleasant smelling, and while basic still enjoyable as all the notes really jumped out with strength.

It tastes like it smells, with sweet malt mixed with citrus hops up front, then some rich caramel, toasted grains, herbs, floral hops, wheat bread, brown sugar, orange peel, and some dark fruit like a cherry. As the beer went on it seemed more malty with caramel beating out the hops, making the hops feel like a nice accent. Very sweet overall and not cloying, sweet in a good way like a fine English brew.

Mouthfeel is on the slick side, with mild carbonation, a medium body and a sweet and slightly bitter aftertaste that trails off grainy like an over buttered piece of cinnamon raisin toast.

Overall I thought that this was very good and tasty; not a session beer, but I could have a few from time to time and always be satisfied. It hides the ABV completely and goes down easy.

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.

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.
