Pours clear amber with 1/2 inch head and moderate carbonation.. Taste is caramel malts, light hops, and dark bread. Above average for the style. A quality beer that I would not hesitate to pick up again.

Very light body. Taste was pretty bland if you ask me.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a mahogany color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light malts. Taste is balanced, caramel malts up front, some hops at the finish, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

A: A red amber color, and a white head.

S: Slightly bready and a touch sweet. There is a subtle fruitiness as well as flora notes.

T: Bready with a slight biscuit note, lightly fruity with a note of caramel, and the finish has a touch of a bitter cling.

M: medium body, with mid to high carbonation. Slightly dry..

O: Overall not a bad beer.. I was a little skeptical with the aroma, but the flavor won me over.. I could rock a few of these.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Classic deep brown chestnut colored body, with red hues and hints all through the glass. Fairly clear. Head is a big soapy three fingers khaki and tan color, with a light top and sudsy lacing.

Malt action has a bit of nice grainy quality, but some off putting noticeable character. Sticky stanky yeast a little and gummy. Some mild sense of bile, with toasty light brown bred aromas. Not much caramel sense on this either.

Palate improves just enough. Mild light bodied and slightly wet character. Caramel and light bodied mild syrup comes out just a bit but hints towards grain and simple toast on the finish. Almost wet but not too bad.

Palate is saved by a bit of imperfect aroma on this brew, but as for the classic red American ale, there's not too much going on, but fairly drinkable to go, but not one I feel like returning to.

L: Pours a clear red with an off white head

S: Balanced malt and hop aroma. Earthy hop. Somewhat yeasty, leathery, woody. Some light English notes.

F: Tastes pretty much like it smells, a bit of an English flair. Bright malty flavor with a wee bit of a currant flavor. A little bit of a woody or oaky note, but not too much.

F: Medium light body, medium carbonation. finishes semi-dry.

O: It's an OK beer. Drinks more like a brown ale for me. Pretty decent.
