More on the holier side, with a slight toasty finish. Fine, solid; nothing life-changing.

12 oz bottle into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a darker, slightly murky copper color. The head is a finger high, with a shade that's a hair off-white. Its creamy texture and decent retention cap the body off nicely. Some lacing sticks to the side of the glass. (3.75)

Smell: This doesn't seem to have the heavily sweet malts of a typical red ale - rather, the malt backbone is more reminiscent of lightly roasted grain and bread. Gentle notes of coffee (?!) and piny hops give it a bit of depth, but generally the nose is unexciting. (3.25)

Taste: A fairly typical red ale. The initial malt notes consist of slightly burnt bread/caramel, before transforming into a finish that's lightly hoppy (think pine)...but also somewhat musty. Yeah, this one is pretty meh. (2.75)

Mouthfeel: Despite starting off with a full body, this also leaves the palate fairly quickly. Ergo, it combines to create something that's both rich AND easy to drink (if not refreshing). If anything, this is the brew's crowning achievement. It doesn't rely on powerful carbonation to cleanse the palate, just dryness. (3.75)

Overall: Red ales don't really work for me, so I won't go seeking this out. All told, it's a pretty forgettable beer - even after putting my style biases on the backburner. (2.75)

3/5: Meh, it's okay enough...
