Sampled back on 10/23/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours copper-brown in color with a thin white head. Left a lot of lacing with each sip. The aroma isn't much actually, maybe some caramel with some grain. The taste was much better than the smell. A tad 'watery' at first but has a lot of complex flavors at the end. Perfect carbonation and great balance. Smooth to drink and goes down easy. Better than many other 'Red Ales' i have had.

This is a good beer if you do not drink a lot of red ales. Lighter in color than your average red ales. Can not taste any distinctive hops.Taste very watery but did not taste terrible. It has a very smooth finish. Can not taste that much malt. It's like it needs a little chocolate malt.

Medium strong. Good but I've had better.

Did not note where I first had the beer but I've ordered it more than once.

A: Golden brown color. One finger head. Cool bottle artwork.

S: Hard to explain. Pretty basic beer smell.

T: Very refreshing to start. Goes down like a cheap watered down beer but ends with a complex aftertaste.

M: Very smooth! Great balance. Aftertaste is a little rough but it fades quickly.

O: A good beer for a hot day. I would definitely buy again.
