Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass
Aroma- Has a nice caramel and malt aroma.
Appearance- pours a murky copper color with a small off-white head.
Taste- Has a malt, hops and fruit flavor with little aftertaste.
Palate- A light to moderate bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish.
Overall- A better than average American Amber/ Red Ale. I would drink this again.
