12oz, "bottled on December". Rigorous pour reveals a reddish-copper ale with a thin bubbly head that dissipates quickly and doesn't leave much for lacing on the glass. Aromas and tastes are similar: sweet, caramel malt, toasted grain, faint fruit. Mouth-feel is rather thin, ample carbonation. Finishes with a very slight earthy hop bitterness. Overall, good take on a red ale, but pretty average at best.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Lightly hazed coppery amber with a foam collar, no lacing.

S. Smells of biscuit dough with sprinkles of light floral and earthy hopping on top.

T. Flavor is significantly nuttier than I expected. Also has a bit of a toasted malt character and finishes with those earthen hops from the nose.

M. Lighter bodied yet smooth in texture.

Thank you to Jamie for this beer.

S- Big malts almost oktoberfest like. Bread and oily wood

T- Biscuit and bread malts forward with some lingering hops in the back. a little spicy herbs also tasted

M- very easy drinker. goes down with no problems

O- More like a Oktoberfest IMO. but a solid red ale. not something i would reach for on a regular basis but glad i got to try it.

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.
