Very smooth maltiness and a very nice caramel taste midway and through the finish. A little high in the booze dept so don't drink too many. :-) Also don't think this one too cold, I think. That hampers the caramel taste.

Slightly hazy copper-amber pour with a tinge of red. Two finger off-white head with great retention and crazy lacing. Huge resiny, piney, malty nose with hints of toffee, caramel, brown sugar, blood orange, and a touch of grapefruit. The taste is just as bold and juicy as the nose. Hints of pine resin, pink grapefruit, blood orange, toffee, caramel, sweet bread, and brown sugar. The balance is perfect and the drinkability is off the charts! The mouthfeel is smooth with a subtle creaminess along with a bit of hoppy bitterness on the finish. Probably the best example of a Red Ale I've tasted.
