Pours brownish red/ Amber. Thick, medium, light tan head. Lasts a bit.

Smells malty, caramel, hints of hops, roasty.

Taste roasted malt, caramel, light earthy hops. Slight sweetness. Finish is semi-sweet with bready linger. Medium body and smooth medium carbonation.

Creamy and syrup(y), balanced flavor. Not too sweet not too bitter. Great beer anytime especially with salty food

Had on tap at the Detroit Zoo, served in a clear plastic cup. Not optimal, but will serve. Pour produced a thick, creamy layer of off-white head. Nice hang time. Color is hazy garnet. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, very pleasant. Taste is the same, with some bready and nutty notes. Solid brew to style.

Edit, 11/4/17: had this a few times on tap since and this one is one of the greater examples of a red out there. Creamy and smooth, with nice fruity tones that play against bready malts. A must-have.
