Had this once at the tasting room. It was new at that point.

Pours a deep amber color with a white head. There is not much hop aroma which may be because they were leaning toward the irish side of things.

Overall the aroma and flavor seemed a bit muted for my taste. It seems too conservative for a nw brewed beer. However, there wasn't anything too negative about it either. Just an inoffensive easy drinker.

I filled a Tap-A-Draft jug at the brewery. Poured in to a pub glass.

Pours a clear mahogany brown color, garnet red when when held up to the light. Modest off-white head.

Smell is faint, an acerbic aroma of wet grain.

Taste is good, A bitter charcoal flavor upfront, with a sweet caramel flavor to follow, and a dry bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light bodied but slightly cloying.

Overall a good red ale. A nice balance of sweet and bitter flavors in a nice drinkable brew.
