This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark ruddy burnt amber color with a finger’s worth of foamy white head that dissipates evenly. Extremely light messy lace. The aroma had some caramel / toffee malts, light pine, some citrus, then some light breadiness. The flavor brings all of the previously mentioned aromas to blend nicely. Light malty aftertaste, sly malty sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Good carbonation. Piney bitterness tries to grip with an even harshness on my tongue. Overall, this was a decent amber ale that I could have again, preferably with food.

Pours a mild amber color with a thin-head into my glass.

Aroma is full of sweet malt with a light grassiness to the hops.

Taste is full of sweet, nearly smoky malt with a slight grassiness to the hops. Lots of emphasis on malt here.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering chewiness from the malt and grassy hops.

A very nice red ale that does a great job of offering balance.
