look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Reddish amber, with nice foam head and thick lacing

S - Upfront malt but a bit muted

T - Strong malt with subtle maple and hops

M -Nice balance, perhaps a little too much carbonation.

O - Very drinkable, but a bit unpronounced for Boneyard. Would reach for an RPM if given the choice

Initial tasting on tap at the brewery. Growler to go which is what I'm reviewing.
Pours dark red, minimal head, nice lace. Smooth up front, caramel, pepper. Tart, slightly bitter mouthfeel.
A very good beer from a very good brewery. I wouldn't have discovered this place except for the Bend Ale Trail. This beer, as their entire lineup, is worth checking out.
Update: A mighty fine beer. Updating scores a notch. Initial rating a bit low.

Growler fill just minutes ago...

- Great clear red color.. light cream colored foam quickly settled to a small ring of lace and some dusting. Looks like a solid red.

- Nice grainy and bready malt... brown sugar, molasses is light... grassy earthy hop aromas..

- Bready grains, sweet caramel and biscuity malt.. certainly a solid tasting red ale.. the way it should be. Nice subtle bitterness.. grassy, herbal.. light zest.

- Easy drinking medium bodied brew without being sticky or syrupy. Well carbonated for the style, and is a little drying and chewy.

- Overall a solid NW style red ale. Proper color, malt bill, and hop flare. Overall doesn't stand out too much, but is certainly a good standard.
