The beer pours a dark amber/red color with a thick frothy off-white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a nice crystal and roasted malt scent; sweet with a touch of roasted character. The taste is decent as well. It has a smooth caramel malt flavor that's sweet up front but dry in the finish. It also has a mild roasted character that balances out the palate. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It has a solid malt flavor that's not overly sweet like some red ales.

3.6/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: It was poured from tap into a small tasting glass at the Becker Brewing Co. tasting room.

Appearance: The body had a deep reddish amber color with good clarity and some visible carbonation. On top, the head starts off as a tall and soapy layer of suds. It quickly fades to just a wispy thin layer of tiny bubbles. Lacing is minimal.

Smell: It has a modest overall aroma with some light roasted grain and sweet bready maltiness with some very light hops way off in the distance.

Taste/Palate: There is an easy medium body with a lightly sweet malty character. It shows some light roasted and caramel notes that are lightly balanced with modest nondescript hop flavor and mild bitterness. Its texture and carbonation are light and easy to drink.

Notes: Well, this was a nice very drinkable beer and that's about it. I would drink it again but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.
