From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Toast, Caramel, Savory

The brewers intention here is a full on malt bomb, brimming with toasty grain and a thick caramel backing this is quite the Red Ale even though our palates are not being assaulted by hops. Exceptionally clean and easy to quaff back for a slightly bigger brew.

STYLE: American Red Ale | ABV: 6.5% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

Surprisingly tasty, well-crafted beer. Nice dark red-copper color with some fluffy white head and minimal lingering lacing. Smells of some nice fruit, malt and caramel. Tastes similarly, along with some faint fruity hops, vanilla and bread. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. Will check out more from this local brewery.
