From my notes.

This pours an amber-caramel color. There’s a light aroma with some caramel notes. Very one-dimensional.

The flavor is malty-sweet, with a rounded caramel character. Could use some roast or hop presence to give it more definition. Otherwise nothing stands out on this beer. True to style?

This beer really exceed my expectations. In all honesty I only bought it because it's brewed in Kalamazoo which is my hometown. So when I saw it on the shelf this far away from home I bought it just because. Anyways this beer is good. It's got a bit of a cinnamon and Carmel taste, a bit of hoppy-ness, and great overall flavor. It's dark and has a decent head!

16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 5/2/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light roast, citrus peel, herbal, grass, light pepper/pine, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate citrus/earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light roast, citrus peel, herbal, grass, light pepper/pine, and toasted earthiness. Light herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, citrus peel, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate citrus/earthy hops flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great red ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate citrus/earthy hops flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Very rich and complex on malt flavors for the ABV; with balancing hop character. A very enjoyable offering.
