Had this on tap at a local hotel in Stamford, CT. This was one of the first beers from a fresh keg
A - Beer pours a nice dark amber color that has a tint of orange. A very small white fluffy head develops but quickly flattens out and disappears.
S - Distinct musty malty and bready tone with a hint of floral hops to balance the profile.
T - Sweet cereal malt flavor with some hints of fresh baked bread and a mild hop tone to finish the taste. This is quite a well balanced beer that has a nice complex array of flavors on board. The beer seems to start sweet and hoppy but finish malty with an excellent balance.
M - Very light mouth feel that is light on carbonation but robust in flavor.
D - Quite a nice beer here that is very sessionable with around a 5% abv. I could drink this beer all day long! Well done Cottrell Brewing Company!

Red-amber beer with a thin head. Some noticeable carbonation.
Rustic malts with an earthy toast. Light pithy hops offer nuances of citrus, specifically, grapefruit. A little toned-down, but decent.
Good hop bitterness with some citrusy and herbal flavors. Pithy, but darker malts contribute a faint roast character and hints of muddled pomme fruit. It does taste a bit restrained.
Mellow mouthfeel with a light-medium body and a carbonation level that's a little on the coarse side. Very drinkable.
I'd like to get a few more of these, because I think my bottle could've been fresher. Shows a lot of promise.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A nice pour delivers a blood orange to red body, and fairly opaque. Head is off white and makes even bubbles with large clumps and some soapy like retention, capping off at about 3 fingers tall.
Nose is a bit biscuity, with some caramel sweetness. Lots of dough and cookie like sensations. Not particularly hoppy either.
Palate comes with a mild grapefruit aroma, and an interesting finish. Front forward palate hot with a nice grapefruit bitterness. A bit of a wet body but some good caramel malt sweetness seems to easily get through. Weird finish though as the beer almost feels stuck in my throat. Nice mix of juiced grapefruit on this which really gets quite stuck in the mouth a bit. Slightly dry and grainy finish after some time passes.
A very interesting but odd tasting brew, certainly worth trying.
