12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A - solid brown with just a hint of red in color. the head is off white to cream, it quickly faded to a thin film at the top of the glass. thin lacing with nice legs.
S - a bit of caramel and some bready tones.
T - some brown sugar, caramel and a nice breadiness. just a slight hoppiness on the finish. just a slight bitter aftertaste.
M - medium carbonation with a slightly lighter body than i expected but it was pretty well balanced.
O - i enjoyed the beer, not really knowing what to expect. i would definitely drink this if given the chance again. won't go seeking it but it is worth trying just for the unusual balance between styles.

On-tap at Tizley's in Poulsbo, WA. Poured into a pint pilsner. Clear deep red-brown color, nice one-finger head, then moderate lacing. Aroma is deep and inviting--malt, caramel, fruity, with mild floral hops. Flavor starts with malt and caramel, some toffee, nicely balanced, with moderate citrus hops finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin. Overall this is a really outstanding red ale, I really like it!
