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

I don't usually go for a red ale, but decided to buy some for family members that like reds and decided to try one. I was pleasantly surprised by smoothness and really enjoyed this beer.
