Reviewed at Cosby Campground, Smoky National Park, TN. Full notes taken at time of consumption.

A- The bottle pours with an orange not red body to a chalice. Pretty much clear of any haze as a white cap forms to about one finger. The fluffy head falls to a thin ring and lacing is spotty.

S- Yeast fruits come to mind with apple esters and some dried light fruits. Toasted, cereal and light crystal grainy hints. Not picking up much and strength is a bit lacking.

T- The paler appearance of the beer shows up in the flavor as it lacks anything beyond lightly toasted malts. Cereal grains, biscuit, light crystal and just a bit sweet. Bready from the yeast with light fruits coming to mind and a finish provided by spicy, earthy hops.

MF- Light bodied with a crisp, foamy consistency. The carbonation is moderately high and it all ends lightly bitter.

Just not up to par with other Red Ales. Has a strong fruity yeast feel and lacks malts and hops to really counteract that. Leaves me looking for more.
