3.3/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Beer was poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Poured a deep amber red color with a two-fingered head of yellow gold foam that slowly faded. Nice lacing with almost no carbonation.

Smell - Malty notes with a very feint estery scent, but nothing overwhelming. Also caught a slight hint of cinnamon.

Taste - Good balance of malty grain flavor and floral hoppiness. Very tender bite, not overwhelming. This one is tough to interpret. Can barely taste the Willamette hops. Very light.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with a nice amount of crispness. Extremely smooth. Almost has a "light beer" quality. Very drinkable with a pleasant oaky characteristic.

Overall - A nice, if not underwhelming red ale. I was looking for something more, but this is a very light 5.3% red ale. You could easily drink 3-4, but the lack of distinctive character detracts this otherwise pleasant beer.

This is a very nice looking beer. Dark red / purple clear with 1 finger head and great retention
Smells nice too. Malty, sweet mostly but very nice. I really like the flavor profile on this one. Very nice malty sweet and bready upfront with a slight hop crisp finish. Very well balanced beer. Perhaps could be a tad thicker and sweeter in flavor but overall its pleasant overall. A very nice sessionable beer with flavor and highly recommend. Nothing mind blowing but if its at a pub, I'd be happy to order one.
