Pours a beautiful shade of dark coppery amber in the Brigand chalice. Modest head but plenty of carbonation. Very light body, in keeping with the Utah Purity of Essence laws.

Some slightly roasted malt with an earthy touch. A little piney and lemony. Somewhat hoppy, but subdued levels of bitterness. This seems less like a pale ale, and the color is so remarkable I'm calling it a Red/Amber Ale. This seems so anemic at first sip, but it actually covers the range of flavors in a subtle way and ends with a bitter, beery tang.

I think the aim is to make something extremely drinkable with just enough hops to keep you drinking. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Emigration Market. Reviewed on Christmas Eve in Salt Lake City with the snow coming down.

Clear red ale with a momentary small tan colored head.

Smells malty with a minty hop scent. Faint sandalwood with a little caramel a small hint of cinnamon.

Starts out malty and nutty with a momentary hit of hop bitterness. Taste makes me think bock beer. Still a little lite on the flavor.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall tastes a little like bock beer.

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden amber color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger fizzy/creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is pretty malty, with some slight roastyness, sweet. The taste is malty, sweet, and with a nice slightly roasty note. Medium body. A pretty tasty brew, glad to find it at the grocery store.
