Poured from the bottle into a stemless wine glass.

A deep glowing red body with nice rising carbonation in the models. Dark chestnut hues complete the edges. Great fluffy but in control tan four finger tall head on top, clumpy lacing while drinking. Great looking amber.

Very small nose. Light toasted grains and small caramel sweetness round out but its pretty closed and subtle.

Wet notes on the body and slightly gaseous. Tingling light carbonated palate feel of small caramel and almost brown sugar. Flattened soda like character a bit too.

Overall though just comes out ok.

Pours a clear copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of hops, and a hint of fruit. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hops, hint of pale malt, and a hint of fruit. Overall, weak appearance and aroma, but more complex body.
