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.

A- deep red brown with fluffy white head that leaves good lace on glass

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.
