This starts with a huge beige head and murky brown body in my Sam Smith Imp. pint. Nose is fresh crystal malt and floral hops and not terribly strong. Yeasty and balanced in the flavor, with a tight, almost tart quality throughout. Not terribly hoppy, but not malt doused as many Amereican red ales are. Another solid effort from this brewer.

Bottled on Dec. 2017 notched on label
12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler pint glass

Look- Clear. Deep reddish amber with 1/2 finger of off white fizzy head and some thin lacing. Head lasted less than two minutes.
Smell- Very light floral and woody aroma.
Taste- Clean and mildly bitter. Bready and not sweet. Finishes a little bitter.
Feel- Thin bodied with a little bit of bite from the carbonation.
Overall- Not a bad Red Ale. A safe choice but a little mundane. It would probably go well with steak and a baked potato. This beer reminds me of background music, It's good and serves a purpose but it isn't memorable.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Overall: A headless wonder that's best described as dead. With so many great amber options, there's no need to return to this one.

Virtually headless, no lacing, no bubbles. Amber, tea-like color. Lots of little particles suspended throughout.
Nearly aromaless. Slight caramel malty smell.
A sleepy flavor profile far from robust. Some mild citrusy, grassy notes. A few fungal/woody flavors, followed by a bready finish.
Moderate to low carbonation, medium-light body.

Malty, caramel medium and burnt, herbal hopping with floral and woody notes. Pretty middle of the pack amber ale. I expected more from Evolution given the high quality of their other beers.

Appearance: Pours a very deep red color.

Overall: Aroma is caramel and woody. The taste contains citrus, bready malts, grassy hops, and light toffee. This is a very nice beer with a lot taste.
