Got a growler of this at Olivers in Albany on 6/17/11 - cost $10.99. . . .

A: Poured from the growler into a pint glass. Body is clear, coppery-amber with mahogany hues. Small khaki head on top. Not much in the way of visible carbonation. No lacing.

S: A bit of caramel malt, but not terribly strong.

T: Caramel malt, toffee-like sweetness, balanced with a nice touch of hop bitterness at the finish, which lingers on the palate in the aftertaste - occasionally seems minerally, but never crossing over into metallic. At times the hops seem piney or slightly grassy, but not in a strong sense. As it warms, there's a berry-like sweetness too.

M: Heft is about medium, maybe a tad lighter. Despite visible evidence of carbonation, it's there - moderately sharp, but not obtrusive.

O: Overall impression: clean, flavorful amber/red that's nicely balanced with some hop bitterness. I could drink a lot of these.

Pours out to a thin white head and deep Amber red color. Aroma is malty and dry with toasty malt notes. Taste is clean and malty. Mouthfeel is just right. Love it.

On tap at Paul's Pizza in Coxsackie, NY.

This one pours a clear light red, with a small white head, and a hint of lacing.

Smells like toasted bread and mild hops- kinda bland.

The taste is also bland. It just feels like a mid 90s red ale. Insignificant malt backbone with anemic hop character- a boring combo.

This is fairly crisp, and drinkable.

I've had this beer a million times. Doesn't stand out.
