January 16, 2015

12 oz bottle, mug

A – Medium to deep amber, mostly clear. White bubbly foam of about an inch, moderate retention.

S – Browned, toasty bready malt. Light caramel sweetness. Some spicy hop aroma, also lightly floral.

T – Caramel malts and toasted bread. Spicy and floral hops providing a firm backbone. Moderate bitterness from hops.

M – Fairly sudsy, moderate to high carbonation. Malts are flavorful without being too sweet. Bitterness and spice are moderate and provide great balance.

O – My first Bristol brew! A very nice red ale, very good balanced flavor, an easy drinker with just a bit of a bite.

Cooler cold on a hot day? Serviceable.

A&S: White fluffy head that pours about a half a finger and retains as specks on top. Leaves tiny bits of lacing. Beer is a semi-lively full orange color. The aroma consists of sparse citrus hops and a heavy malt component, and some mild sweetness.

T&M: Little too malty. Lacking in the hop department. A little heavy on the palate due to its high malt content. Pretty bland. On the light side of medium body, on the low side of medium carbonation.

Overall: Not super drinkable. It wasn't like this beer is awful, I just wouldn't seek it out again and wouldn't recommend for the style (much better options out there).
