Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep reddish-amber color with an almost none existent tiny foam head. The head fades almost instantly leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is mostly of a caramel nature with some other sweeter and sugary aromas of brown sugar and molasses. Other aromas of a lightly toasted bread and a bit of an earthy and pine hop are there as well, producing overall a well-rounded smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a clean, lightly toasted bread flavor with a rather decent level of caramel sweetness. The caramel is joined by some brown sugar as the taste advances with the roast letting up a bit. All the while, some hop flavors start working their way onto the tongue with some flavors of an earthy and herbal nature coming to the tongue. With a little bit of tangerine and some light pine also joining the flavor at the end, a rather smooth, moderately sweet red flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of both its thickness and carbonation. Both are rather nice for the easy drinking feel of the brew all while upholding the sweeter and lightly hopped flavors nicely.

Overall – Very easy drinking but with a good level of flavor and complexity. A rather nice red overall.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was amber colored even though it really is a red ale. Who cares right? The beer had a tan head and the beer had a great smell of vanilla. The beer was nice and clean tasting with a very faint vanilla taste on the initial hit. I think I will give this beer another shot.
