Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, light pine. Taste is toasted malts, some caramel, but not nearly as much as the aroma would indicate,a bit of hops are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

This beer left me bewildered. I don't get it. There's nothing distinguishing about this beer. I can't give it less than a solid three, but it ain't worth more than that.

From the tap and Bel Air location (recently sold). Pours clear, reddish-brown in color with a small head. The nose is pleasant with a bit of malt. A bit of malt in the mouth as well. Medium bodied. Easy to drink. Nice!

Had on tap. Pours clear, tan in color with minimal head. Taste is toasted malt, grain,with chocolate and caramel tones as it warms. Medium bodied, clean easy drinker. A really good red ale that I would have again.

Drinking this nice little red this afternoon I know I've had this before. Or else it was something that tastes nearly the same, which is entirely possible. This is a competent American red, and there is a lot of similarity between some of them

It is on the brown side of red with nice continuous head. The aroma is clean, mild and malty.

The taste is very middling too. It's balanced, with hops being lower in the picture than on some of the style, and that's as it should be. It's a nice clean malty taste that leaves you refreshed.

This isn't a brew that will wow you with any extremes but it is a well made drink that you should not refuse. Have one.

On draft at the Bowie location.

Dark amber colored in the glass, no head. Aroma and flavor is all sweet malt. No real hop flavor in the taste at all. Medium bodied.

This is a pretty nice red. Hits all the right notes, with no offensive flavors. I could easily see drinking a few of these while out with some buddies.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes
