A: Poured from the botlle into a Sam Smith's nonic-style pint glass. Body is clear reddish-amber with a half-finger off-white head that settles to a bubbly film. Some splotchy lace.
S: Good nose for a red/amber ale - caramel malt/toffee is prevalent, but there's just a touch of citrusy hops as well. Faint bit of earthiness too.
T: Very nice. Clean. Balanced. Good amber/red traits: strong caramel malt foundation, with some toastiness as well, but there's a good amount of citrusy, tropical fruit-like hoppiness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.
M: Medium in heft, body is wisely lighter than it could have been given what seems to be a fairly large malt profile. Where some bigger amber/reds can become slick and heavy, this one remains on the lighter side, enhancing its drinkability. Carbonation is modest; it could use a touch of fine prickliness, but all in all the mouthfeel is a plus.
O: Good stuff. Not a standout, amazing beer in any single category, but overall, this one's well done.
