The beer was served in a pint glass.

A - Amber/Light Brown color and almost perfectly clear. A nice 2 finger white head with great retention and lacing.

S - The aroma is that of sweet malt character. Some bread and biscuit tones as well.

T/M - The beer starts with the sweet malt character and develops into a well balanced beer with nice toasted malt to even out the sweetness, mild hop bitterness. The beer finishes very smooth and creamy. Good carbonation and light to medium bodied.

D - Extremely.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Red ale with decent head retention. very clear and plenty of carbonation.

S: Slight waffle syrup with caramel notes. The alcohol comes through in the smell somehow.

T: bitter more than sweet, and plenty of dry hoppy flavor.

M: very dry and slightly soapy in the wash.

Quaffable but only for the right price.
