I had this at the original Blackhorse in Clarksville with a burger. Pours a hazy amber/red - true to a red ale. Head: A medium-small thick head that drops to a thin layer after a few minutes. Taste: Dominant malt flavor, but not overpowering with hints of fruit and caramel type flavors. Decent amount of carbonation, but fairly easy to drink overall. Not a bad red, but not my favorite.

Appearance: Hazy amber, with a thick off-white head. Almost no lace.

Aroma: Toasty caramel malts. Typical but not bad.

Taste: Light in body, fruity and toasty malts. Actually a pretty tasty and enjoyable session ale.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, pale, ruby-tinted caramel coloring, with a sparse, low profile, off-white head. Aromas of roasted caramel, sugary highlights, and subtle fruity esters. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with notes of caramel and berry blending together. Subtle roasted notes in the backbone, but overpowered by the initial sugary sweetness. The body is light, effervesced, and slightly sharp, leading into a sugary sweet aftertaste. The finish is cloying, with the syrupy, sugary sweetness of berries and caramel lingering on a bit. A bit lopsided, and a bit all over the place.

Pours light brown with a little orange. Not much head.
Smells like nutty malt, light grass.
Taste is similar to smell. Nice buttery aftertaste. Not very hoppy.
Not my favorite style but a decent brew.
