A good refreshing session beer that meets the below 5 abv mark. Obtained from TMoney2591 in a trade. Pours into a pint glass, a hazy caramel color with a good size off white head and some lacing.

Smell is biscuity malts. Tastes good, a malty Red Ale....Biscuity and bready..no caramel or other flavors, a little grassy hops at the end for balance.

Mouthfeel is a hair light, still crisp and not too sweet. Nice malt forward balance. A good session beer. Would like to try it on tap.

Golden beer with a reddish hue and a white head that dissipates quite fast, leaving almost no lacing behind.
It has a sweet smell that resembles burnt sugar and cracker jack, with hints of alcohol.
Taste is somewhat sweeter that expected as well, with the same sugar predominance but there are also some bitter hops to balance it a bit.
Light to medium body, easily drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to the fatkid13 for this beer.

A: Simple auburn toffee color with some haze to it. Head fell quick leaving a film across the top and a medium sized off white ring around the side of the glass. Fairly straight forward so far.

S: Cider, cooked carrots, minor caramel, cheap OJ and Lucky Charms

T: Starts with red fruits across the front of the palate with an eggy custard savory taste lurking under the surface. Quickly turns to your traditional caramel with spritzs of cinnamon and perhaps vanilla. Little bit of tree bark bitterness just a tad on the dirty side adds the next piece of the puzzle, but its blended in well. Finishes with cooked strawberries, watermelon and cotton candy.

M: Medium body and fairly hard across the palate

D: Overall this beer has nice flavor but too watery. It could use a jolt of flavor, but at the level its residing it remains quite quaffable.
