I was surprised to find this listed as a “red ale” as I would consider it more of a pale ale with extra hoppiness. It pours a nice light amber color with a good two finger head and moderate lacing. A little bitter with good carbonation. You can really taste the barley and hops. A good refreshing summer beer.

Amber beer pours an amber color, prolly a slight bit darker than your average SRM for style. Dropped good clarity and a head over a full inch.

Taste dropped some nice c hops with the amber malts. Plenty of caramel, slightly above average hopping for style. More than just bitterness, imparts some woodsiness hop flavor. Above average overall. Bitter, lively carbonation that keeps it from seeming too malty like some reds/ambers can do.

Color is a true Amber. The smell is just perfect, with the malt and hops both subtly present, but not overwhelming. The taste is just lovely: as you'd expect with a west coast beer, the hops is present, but it doesn't overwhelm. So complex. Just a great beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a copper color with a small white head. The aroma is fruit and caramel malt. The taste is malt and fruit. A good beer.

Clear amber pour with a one-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Taste has a caramel sweetness and light malt upfront. Can also taste an earthy bitterness.
