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

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.

Bottle from Cindy's Spirits. Exceptionally dull pour, lifeless brew. Faint aroma, average taste which favors the malt bill. Some toffee and caramel notes, finishes way too quickly, and body is rather thin.

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.

Had at the brewery.

Amber in color with a negligible head. Smells bready, light malts. Tastes mild and bready as well, with decent sweetness coming through. Smooth drinking and medium body.

This is a decent beer that is what it is and nothing more. Not exactly memorable, but I would recommend it to anyone in the mood for an amber ale.

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.

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.
