Had a pint of this among others during my latest visit to their Pigeon Forge location.

The beer was served in a pint glass with maybe a 1/4" off white head when it arrived at my table. The color was a nice copper.

The nose was slight but had hints of toasted malt.

The taste was quite nice. Predominantly a toasted malt but with a fruity hint of apples or ripe pears. Minimal hops balance this brew out.

Mouthfeel was nice and robust. Just a little chewey with nice mouth coating and aftertaste.

Drinkability: Probably my favorite of all the beers I've tasted at Smoky Mountain Brewery. I would recommend starting with this one.

Medium amber with hints of red in appearance. Smell is mild with very slight hints of hops. Mouthfeel is full and is very noticable on the side of the tongue. Taste, this is a very inviting flavor. There is a sweet flavor with a little hint of beech wood (we think), nice. Overall this is very drinkable brew. One that will go well with a good burger

Appearance - orange/gold color, light crown with some spotty lace.

Aroma - decent malt, a fruity and sweet albeit light hop presence.

Taste - predominantly malt-based with a light roast character. Very light hop profile but tasty.

Mouthfeel - medium body, average carbonation, just above average body.

Drinkability - great session pale and a fine start to the sampler set.

Had this as part of a sampler. This is a pretty good example of a red ale.

A - Came to the table in a 5.5 oz cylinder and it had a very deep amber color with a small amount of head that was falling quickly leaving no lace

S - There was a malty/nutty/bready smell to it with a faint whiff of piney hops

T/M - The taste was very much like the aroma. It was a nice example of a red but nothing very noteworthy. Carbonation was in good order but it had a bit of a metallic after taste

D - The overall drinkability of this beer was about average. I certainly wouldn't turn one down but I wouldn't seek it out either.
