A nice little session Red Ale. At 4.9% you could drink a few of these. Pours a clear amber color into my pint glass. Decent size white head and good lacing. Head retention is above average. Smell is mild. Some caramel and bready malts.

Nice mild taste, a little grassy hops balances the malty flavor. Caramel and bready malts make up most of the taste.

Mouthfeel is a bit on the light side but still acceptable. Nicely balanced, crisp and refreshing.

Worthwhile as a session beer. Nothing outstanding about it.

This poured a deep amber hue that had a robust character and was topped by a decently thick off white head.

The scent is a touch weak but very nice. A scorched barley aroma is mixed with a roasted grain and malt that is very appropriate.

The flavor is more impressive as the roast and toasted grain is more evident. There is some caramel malt sweetness and a hint of burnt toast.

The feel is dry with moderate carbonation and an easy drinkability.
