Drinking from a 12 ounce can describing the brew as essentially a grab bag of flavors. “From biscuits and caramel, to cotton candy…” I can see that, or taste that. I think the sweetness stands out the most, but there’s a decent red ale underneath. Pretty easy drinking, if a little thin for my taste. 2017/06/13

Had this at yesterday's Riverfest in Casper.

It poured a clear amber with a small head of foam, a little bit of lacing.

The smell had some caramel malt and earthiness. Very light aroma.

The taste was sweet from the caramel, musty from the earthy element, pretty nicely balanced and an easy drinker. Not too shabby for the usually boring style.

A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Entered into the GABF competition as an Irish Red, so this may be mis-classified here on BA. I will rate my bottle as an Irish Red.

Pours a half finger of light tan head over a clear brown-rust liquid. Perhaps too dark for the style. Smells dark malts with mild hop grassiness. Mineral, light nut, and chocolate.

Tastes chocolate and nut with mild roast grains. Nearly dry enough for the style, but the dark grains are too strong. Has a mineral bite that would like be sharper if chocolate flavor didn't detract. Minimal hop flavor and low esters (primarily pear). Dry finish with fine effervescent carbonation that helps play up the mineral bite. A tad bit more chewy than I would expect.

Not to style, but a nice beer if just consumed by someone not concerned about such things. Which is what I think I will do for the second half of the bottle.

Poured from 12 oz can into pint glass.

Apperance: poured a 1" cream color head that dropped moderately with some mild lacing. Mostly clear amber color with mild streaming bubbles.

Aroma: sweet barley malt, bread crusts, earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied with a damp finish.

Flavor: bread crust, caramel, raisin, ripe fruit with mild hops for balance

Overall: easy drinking, a nice session ale.

Having given a review of another , similar style (which was outstanding) earlier, I was wary to do this one on the same day. Curiosity got the better of me...

A: Golden amber, which is what the beer claims to be--not an Irish Red, as stated here. Head is a little short-lived and somewhat fizzy, but alright.

S + T: Soft, caramel malts... little else. The flavour is also largely toasted, somewhat bready malts. There is essentially no hop presence in this beer at all. The taste does appear to be one that grows on the drinker with a few sips, though.

M + D: Medium bodied, balanced well with a moderate carbonation. This beer is among those that I may not rave about incessantly, but rather, pick up from time to time because it's not terrible.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a copper amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a caramel and molasses smell with some aromas of a bready nature. Along with these smells comes some light notes of earthy hops and a bit of grass as well.

Taste- The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and molasses taste mixed with some flavors of a bready and doughy nature. The douhginess fades all while the caramel gets a bit stronger and the bready takes on a slightly roasty taste. Toward the end some light hop flavors of an earthy nature comes to the tongue, leaving one with a sweet and lightly roasted/toasted taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to slightly thicker side for a brew of only 4.6 % with a carbonation level that is a bit on the lower side. The feel is rather nice overall, as it provides a good base for the flavors to sit upon and be fully appreciated by the tongue, even in light of the lower abv.

Overall – A rather nice “more sessionable” amber ale at only 4.6 % abv. It has a lot of flavor all while maintaining a great drinkability.
