look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Very clear orangeish amber. Nice looking caramel-tinted, fluffy head. Good retention; decent lacing.

Nice roasted and caramel notes, with some tea thrown in for good measure. Pretty low key nose, but it smells great. The taste is consistent with the nose, with some fruity notes and sweet tea. There also is a subdued nuttiness in the background. This brew is mostly sweet-tasting, but there's a little kick of bitterness going into the finish, which is dry. Pretty much perfect for the style. Actually, I kind of feel like I just wrote the style description. This beer is light-bodied and slippery with a good amount of carbonation.

This is an amazing example of the style and a great beer all around. Nicely done.

Appearance is a reddish-copper color with a thin layer of head. The nose is lightly malty. The flavor profile is clean and relatively light with a focus on malty sweetness. The finish is semi-dry and very pleasant. This is a very sessionable red ale.

Serving type: on-tap
