Had a couple of pints down at the Sonora restaurant recently.

This red/amber ale was served with a nice head that left a generous lacing down my pint. Nose was sweet malts. Taste started the same as the smell finishing with a nice dry hop. Mouthfeel was fairly full. Overall, a nice drinkable beer.

This is a limited release only on draught at the Sonora Brew House and Papago Brewery at this time?
The color a very deep amber to burnished copper color to the pour, the head impressive in size, the texture frothy and the lace thick and clinging. Malt at the front and the hops underlying this sweet nose, start malt and lightly sweet, top middling and the finish spicy in its hop presence, moderately acidic, dry as a bone aftertaste. An easy drinking beer that is hopped just right, the malts perfect, and over the last couple of years had tap and cask versions, a fine drinking beer year in and year out
