Draft poured into a pilsner. Nice one-finger head, unfiltered red-honey amber color, not much lacing. Aroma is subdued initially, when it is cold. When it warms up a bit, the aroma is still mild, but very pleasant--gentle malt and floral hops. Flavor is malt, mild hops, a bit of pine, not citrus-like, a bit of sweetness. Mouth feel is on the thin side of medium, not thick or chewy. Overall this is a very good red ale, not quite outstanding. It was great fun to sample, and I would drink it again.
