On tap at Bruery Provisions shop. In a 4th of July flight. About a 3-4 oz pour. Pours a nice amber/red/orange color. Film for a head with a bubbly ring. Nice lacing.

Aroma is amber-ey. Needs some hop aroma. I like hoppy ambers. Not much to say about the aroma.

Taste is good. Nice maltiness at first then a nice hop bit with a bit of flavor. Pretty tasty. Not super flavorful though.

Mouthfeel is nice and dry with a good carb.

Overall a refreshing summer amber. Good but not amazing. Try it if you see it.

On-tap at Provisions

A: The pour on this a cloudy amber color with a big white head.

S: Lots of hops on the nose, which is quite nice.  Big citrus and floral notes with a bit of grass.  There is some candy-like sweetness and a bit of toast and toffee maltiness.

T: There is sort of a tea-like flavor with a moderate bitterness.  Some grassy hops and light floral notes are pretty much the bulk of the hop flavor.  Some bready malts and a bit of toffee sweetness.

M: The body is medium and the carbonation is also medium.

O: The nose was pretty nice, but the flavor was not quite as good or enjoyable.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a light to medium amber with a somewhat fizzy off-white head, solid lace and retention.

S: Noticable pine, American hop aroma.

T: Some good crystal malt flavour. Pine needles, grapefruit and some melon rind form the hop characteristics. Pretty standard red ale flavour.

M: Medium-bodied, smooth, easy going on the palate.

O: A nice American red ale, there's nothing to blow you away here, but nothing bad either.
