Nice smooth malty flavor at first, nice hoppy finish. This really is "red ale"

02/06/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Nothing outstanding. OK balance of basic tastes but doesn't impress. I'm not a fan of overt beers, but this makes me wonder 'what's the point'. Mediocre at best.

There is caramel and bread from the malt in the aroma along with pine and floweriness from the hops. The malt and hops are fairly even in prominence. The body is a deep mahogany with orange-ish highlights and a dense, almost creamy, light khaki head. The flavor includes spicy and flavorful pine, grapefruit, and floweriness, along with a noticeable amount of caramel-like malt. The finish includes a little alcohol and resiny bitterness in addition to the lingering malt. It has a medium body with moderate carbonation.

Very smooth and flavorful with a significant malt presence, providing a richer and more complex flavor profile than some of the other American ambers I've tried. It does get a wee bit dry and bitter in the finish, but it's subtle enough merely to contribute a little bite to its otherwise soft and well-rounded character.
