In a pint glass this beer was a turbid brown color with a small light tan head.

Average aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Not too much going on here.

A little more to the taste. Fairly tart cherry taste, with some caramel. A little bit of biscuit.

A pleasant tartness to this beer. Easy to drink.

On tap at The New England Taphouse Grille.
Comes to the table a slightly hazy deep reddish brown with a decent sized ff white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of caramel and light brown sugar with bits of earthy citrus hop. The flavor is lightly sweet dark sugary malt with plenty of earth and citrus to counter.Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Standard red ale, serviceable but not horribly exciting.

Pours opaque amber/orange with a foamy cream-colored head. No lace.

Nice rich toasted malt note. Some caramel and bread aromas.

Malty one, with some bread crust, some caramel, and a little earth. Hop bitterness comes in, but balances well with the malt. Malt has a richness but not a fruitiness. Some bread toast and crust in the finish. A slight tartness as a sign of freshness; a little yeast too.

Medium bodied and decent carbonation.

Easy drinking and full of flavor. Great at the grill today. I'd buy again.

Poured from a 22 Oz bomber into a shaker pint.

A: Pours a copper color, slightly cloudy with an off-white head that disappears quickly.

S: sweet malt. No aroma of hops. slightly fruity

T: Malty, slight bitterness to balance it. Slight fruitiness.

M: Medium bodied. No carbonation sting.

O: A decent American Amber Ale. Nothing extreme. Would go well with burgers or a cheese plate.
