3.64/5 rDev +6.4%
Poured into a Dogfish signature snifter. No readable freshness date.
A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves clots behind.
S- Sweet cereal grain malt and some caramel is actually quite pleasant.
T- Toasty malt brings more caramel notes. Very mild hop bitterness. Quite innocuous but it doesn't taste bad at all. A metallic aftertaste surfaces after a while.
M- Standard, actually a bit thin. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- Was expecting much worse from this considering the score but its sweetness, quaffability and considerable amount of flavor sort of won me over. The only downfall was the thin mouthfeel but this really isn't a bad beer overall.

3.38/5 rDev -1.2%
Appearance: Amber to light brown and mostly clear. Pours a ½” inch head that fades quickly. Decent amount of lacing and moderately carbonated.
Aroma: toasted bread, caramel malts, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a fairly dry finish.
Flavor: Flavors the aroma – a significant malt presence dominates this brew. Nice mix of toffee, whole wheat bread, and earthy hop spice.
Overall: A very good session beer.

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.
