My parents brought a mixed 6pck home from their trip down south. The beer poured a clear amber with thin white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had hints of bitter hop. The taste is a little sharp but decent to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Pours clear, amber in color with no head. Taste is toffee, toasted malt, and light earthy hops. Medium bodied and sweet. Makes for an above average tasting true to style malty beverage. Nothing to rush out for but easy to drink.

A: This was more of a brown than a red with a small head
S: Malty smell
T: This was a clean tasting beer with a bit too much bitterness for a red ale, It was not very complex and lacked a lot of body
M: Smooth with a bit of bite at the end
O: At first the taste was clean and resembled an IPA, but the more I drank the more I wished I hadn't bought an entire growler full. It was good but should have stopped at one at the restaurant instead of buying an entire growler. If I'm at the restaurant again I will probably buy it again but certainly won't take it home with me.

On tap poured into a pint glass

12 oz bottle, no date. but bought at the brewpub

pours a clear medium amber color, the head fades. malty aroma, no hop flavor. fairly sweet taste. thin body. overall just pretty boring.
