Pours a dark red amber with a medium beige head with good lacing. Has an abundance of caramel malt with pine earthy hops,dark fruity notes. A medium body with a bit sweet and sticky mouth feel. Sweet caramel malt and earthy pine hops bitterness on the end that linger awhile. Brew seems a bit heavy for an amber style ale but has lot of flavor and good sweet malt character. A good brew.

A: Burgundy with an off-white one finger head that settles to bubbles and foam. Thick lacing.

S: Piney hops, biscuity malts, grapefruit.

T: A nice malt/hop balance. Smooth, sessionable. The cranberries on the finish kinda killed the overall taste. Bad choice of ingredients.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: I don't know if traveling in my wife's suitcase from LA to Mississippi messed up the taste. But I was expecting more. Once again, the cranberries cut in on the taste.
