Not a strong amber/red ale. Taste seemed a little toned down compared to other amber ales.

Got this at Pluckers in Austin, served in a glass. Dark(ish) red color. Great balance of hops, malts, and spices. Smooth finish. Enjoyable beer - great with wings.

Bought in six pack in Texas and drunk on the beach in Florida. A little lite on the mouthfeel but overall a very enjoyable amber ale. A good balance of hops and malts and the label ain’t bad either.

Reddish Amber almost copper draft pour; thick beige head; decent cap and retention; pretty good lace and clarity. Semi sweet caramel nose; semi sweet caramel malt flavor. Lite, almost watery mouthfeel; moderate carbonation. Lite, almost nothing, hop linger...
