12oz bottle in Sam Adams glass
best by December (in the fridge since June)
A: Dark amber/red color with a 1/2 finger creamy, light tan head that coats the glass and leaves tons of lace.
S: Pine in front with citrus in the back combined with a distinct sweetness
T: Sharp hoppy bitterness that is quickly blended with caramel sweetness.
M: Round mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation
O: A very good example of an American Red ale, I wish it was 6% vs. 7% so I could keep drinking. I'm not usually a fan of this style, but it turns out to be great as the weather gets cold. Given we have a lot more cold ahead of us, I wish I had more of these in the fridge. Worth trying.
