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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
