Poured on tap into a pint glass. It has a light amber/red hue with a minimal white airy head. It has a faint sweet hop smell. It has a light malt taste with a mostly citrus body and a light hop finish. It has a crisp and fresh mouth feel with a semi dry finish. Overall it is an ok red ale.

This was served on tap in a pint glass.
The color was red/amber with a bar pour's kind of head, just a film that allowed no lacing.
The smell was a bittersweet citrus hops over a light caramel malts.
The taste was basically the same.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good hoppy Amber that I would have again.
