Great color and pour, but weak on taste and smell. It could be so much more if it was just a little stronger!

On tap. Appearance: Pours brilliant reddish amber with a finely bubbled white merengue-like foam cap. Smell: Malty aromas with traces of grain and caramel. Taste: A malty caramel palate with a mild bitter accent on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium light body and medium carbonation.

A - Brick red, moderate cast but still mostly transparent. Moderate off-white head that dissipates quickly, leaving a ring. Significant lacing.

S - Mostly malts in the form of bread dough and floral and grass hits from the hops.

T - Add caramel to the nose, and you get the opening taste. The middle and end are a gradual increased hop bitterness, but the close fades back into the sweeter caramel and sugar flavors.

M - Light, brisk, with mild drying in the close.

O - A delicious and drinkable red, making the case for the gentle brew.
