Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts and grains. Taste is malts, caramel, some grains, smooth and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall makes for a fine session or warm weather beer.

On tap at Yard House in Northridge, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, toast, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet toast, earth, and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid toast and nut qualities all around.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A real nice fluffy light tan to light khaki head, three fingers tall, sitting on a nice red copper brown body. Nice and large, a booming red body, crystal clear, virtually no rising carbonation, looks very nice.

A nice faint sticky malt, and some spicy brown sugars. Faint English hitting bitter and hint of tea aromas. Pretty solid.

Palate comes with a bit subdued tea warmth. Malt thickness and caramel richness a bit watered and toned down. Comes almost crisp finish, which really enhances the toasty aromas of brown bread and blackened crust. Muted caramel and sugars, with big toasty and dry finish

Overall it's a doable red ale, but misses some of the malt thickness and sweetness I am expecting.
