2016 vintage. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a dark amber with nice clarity; big fluffy light tan head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and very sticky lacing. The aromas are nonexistent. It doesn't smell bad, it just doesn't smell like anything. There's some toasted malts noticeable when you dig really deep. The flavors are clean and bitter. Nice earthy hop bitterness. Lots of pine. More toasted malts, but the hop bitterness might outweigh the malt backbone. There's a subtle spiciness. Possibly some rye in the mix. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is really nice. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with fluffy active carbonation. It's very creamy, smooth and easy to drink.

I might not personally love this one, but I appreciate it. It's very clean, crisp and refreshing. The aroma department is lacking though.

Red ales are growing on me. I believe this one is a holiday special edition seasonal. The spice taste is relatively mild, however, and it has a bit of hop to satisfy hopheads like me.

Received in a BIF and enjoyed this hoppy red. What made it really cool was the beer was canned on 11-25-15. The day my son was born and I became a dad.

Looks like canned November 6, 2015 enjoyed December 30, 2015 in a snifter.

Look - Head exploded with popped top and after weak pour. Light tan, large bubbled head. A lot of lacing because of that. Dark red amber body.

Smell - Caramel. Malt. Toffee. Raisin.

Taste - Malt. Caramel. Hop?

Feel - Doesn't sit well. Hairspray alcohol burn. Dry.

Overall - Hops are all but gone. Malty red ale.

12oz can (11/23/15 #146 date stamp) poured into a milkshake pilsner glass.

Appearance: Mostly clear dark copper-amber color. Initial 1/4" thick light tan foam died back to give a thin foam across the top and lots of lacing all over the glass - big sheets and strands. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Lightly hoppy - fresh cut citrus juice.

Taste: Solid piney hop flavor from start to finish with some toasted malt in the middle. The finish has a tiny bit of herbal character to it. A tiny bit pungent.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, a bit sticky on the teeth. A bit of a lingering spicy finish all over the mouth.

Overall / Drinkability: Given the style, it's a great looking beer, but nothing special flavor wise. Good, but not amazing. Easily drinkable though, but I'm not sure I'd want another.
