Appearance: Lovely reddish brown hue and soft carbonation, excellent looking red ale. Slightly off white small head.

Aroma: Brown Bread, Caramel, Earthy Hops and Very Soft Tones of Molasses

Body: High, Low body overall. Clean taste with a mild earthy/dirty hops tone and bitterness.

Taste: Nice overall flavor for a red ale, the caramel and brown bread notes began the ale which mellowed out and blended with the earthy hops flavor. The bitterness play it's part more in the middle of the ale and blended down towards the end bringing up a sweet cereal grain sweetness to finish.

Overall not a bad red all, it has it's own character and is one of the nicest traditional red ales I've had, very solid and should be searched out by all red ale fans, Cheers!
