I had this on tap at Buffalo Wild wings in Colonial Park -Harrisburg PA, enjoyed chilled in a large wheat glass. It is described as an amber ale on the menu.

The color is light amber with great clarity and thick white cap with lace that rings the glass. The smell is slightly malt oriented with slight caramel essence and gentle citrus aroma from the hops. The feel is good with moderately full and balanced body with hops and sweetness in tandem with moderately high carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The flavor has a mildly lemony taste with some light caramel from the malt to bolster the flavor with some light yeast taste with bready malt juxtapostion and slight sweetness mid palate. The smooth bitterness arrives later with mild hop in the background into the finish w/ mildly herbal element and clean carbonated dry finish. Overall this is not wonderful or groundbreaking, but it is a pretty solid beer with good flavor when paired with wings which is what this was designed for. It is is just a little better than average compared to most in the style, but is fairly drinkable.

Buffalo Wild Wings is a personal favorite but I must admit that I had to laugh a little when they put a flyer in front of me that stated Red Hook had created a craft beer especially for them or at least buffalo wings. After drinking a couple I will further add that this is really good.

The color was rich amber with a thick almost meringue like head. The head was so fluffy and light that I had to fight through it to get to the beer.

The scent was malty, caramel malts and barley. Smooth semi-sweet and a touch bitter you can catch some hop aroma.

The taste is of strong caramel malts, barley, grains and an end of earthy, piney hops. Not necessarily sugary it is lightly sweet with some roasted textures. Very smooth and it has a nice balanced carbonation.

This is a nice surprise as it was appropriate for the food but offered a tasty craft beer experience.
