Solid - a nice balance of maltiness offset by a bit of bitterness from the hops. On the lighter side of medium bodied and not overly carbonated. Easy drinking and refreshing.

Another can courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty deep amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light hops. Taste is also on the mild side, some hops, light malts, easy drinking but kind of a bit on the bland side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

I had this on tap at the White rose -served chilled in a pils glass.

The color is murky ruddy brown with a thick cream cap w/ ultrafine bead and light lace clings. The beer has an ulfiltered look that gives translucent clarity. The smell of the amber is lightly fruit with a slight diacetyl note with mild toasted malt odor. A mildly creamy body, slightly yeasty feel and fruity with a gentle malt element with medium body and semi-sweet finish.

The taste is above average with an appropriate amount of caramel and bready sweetness and mild toasted notes. There is a slight fruity tanginess from the yeast with slick buttery accent however it finishes semi-dry with low bitterness. This has a bit of sweetness but doesn't fall into the full malt or higher than average hopping type amber categories which brings it down overall for me. the taste could have a cleaner yeast which also makes it lackluster for me. It could use some refining in general, but I prefer a drier amber overall.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sly transparent amber color with some carbonation seen rising to fill a finger’s worth of white foamy head. Soft film of white foamy head congregates around the glass. The lace is the same. The aroma has a soft malty sweet blend of biscuits, white bread, caramel, toffee and grassy hops. Some fruitcake comes in as it warms. The flavor was sticky malty sweet with the biscuits seemingly tasting like they’re honey coated. Some nuttiness comes out. Hops seem barely there. Crisp nutty caramel/toffee/toasty/fruitcake aftertaste. Sticky malty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, good as a red ale worthy of having again for the style.
