look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a reddish light brown color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Toasty, sweet malt with some mild hop character that's mostly earthy. Also some weird must from the yeast

T- The toastiness continues but it's quite a light toastiness as is the hop bitterness and flavor. Easy to drink, though pretty plain.

M- Also plain with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- I feel like they wanted to make a red that was very red, but not all the way brown, yet they ended up at a halfway point which doesn't really lead to anything interesting. Like they wanted to redefine the style but ended up making something very...plain. But it has enough character to keep it drinkable, hence the generous score.

A: This brew pours a slightly cloudy red/amber with a dense light tan head. Good head retention and nice lacing.

S: Nice aroma of caramel and graham with a balanced citrus and mild pine hop. A little bread crust in the background.

T: Caramel and raisin balanced with a citrusy, somewhat earthy hop. A bit of lemon in the finish. Finishes semi-dry. with low aftertaste.

M: Medium body with a mild creaminess. low/moderate carbonation. A little acidity on the tongue and the tiniest bit of astringency

O: The aroma is quite nice but the flavors are a bit muted for the style. The flavor seems to fade quickly. Just not that exciting a brew. Definitely a nice beer though, just not as good as some others in the same style. Almost drinks more like a mild. Having said that, I'd order this in a restaurant but probably wouldn't buy a sixer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Deep brown cherry red filtered brew with lots of carbonation, 2 fingers of beige head. Fine thin lace like lacing.

S: Citrus, sweet toffee, fruity like cherries, coffee, very candy like.

T: Fruity like fruit punch, citrus, light toasted malts, coffee. Light bitter hops linger on the palate as well as fruity notes.

M: Medium body, medium high foamy carbonation, smooth finish.

O: Got this one in Williamsburg, VA, at the cheese factory, drank in Clyde, NC June 23, 2014. Really well done in spite of mediocre reviews.

a nice beer from my hometown. Nice ale flavor but lacking a bit of boldness associated with most ales. Overall, a commendable effort and an enjoyable beer, served well chilled. Flavor tends to lose its appeal as it warms. Bravo for bringing a good beer that is brewed in Williamsburg
