Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, amber-toffee coloring with a ton of carbonation and a clingy, low profile, off-white head that leaves a filmy lacing along the glass. Aromas of sugary sweetness, with tangy caramel, roasted nut, and hints of chocolate. Flavors are roasted and sweet forward, with more of the toffee and chocolate combination coming to the foreground. Roasted notes turn to a slight char character at the tail-end of the palate, with a subtle bitter hops character shining through there, as well. Smooth and light in mouth. Drinkable throughout, with a roasted and sweet aftertaste. The finish is light, slightly effervesced, with a slightly sweet linger. This is a very drinkable brew, but it doesn't do anything to separate itself from the middle ground of this style.

A nice little session Red Ale. At 4.9% you could drink a few of these. Pours a clear amber color into my pint glass. Decent size white head and good lacing. Head retention is above average. Smell is mild. Some caramel and bready malts.

Nice mild taste, a little grassy hops balances the malty flavor. Caramel and bready malts make up most of the taste.

Mouthfeel is a bit on the light side but still acceptable. Nicely balanced, crisp and refreshing.

Worthwhile as a session beer. Nothing outstanding about it.
