This is probably the most balanced brew I've had. Strong, slightly spiced malt, a bit of cream, a touch of floral hops and the hint of warm alcohol. It stops just short of heavy to remain very drinkable. Prominent lace head, beautiful deep color, subtle nutty aroma and lingering toasted flavor.

Had a bottle with bbq lunch at Coopers in New Braunfels earlier today. No bottling date visible.

Beer was amber brown.

Nose was malty without a lot of side characteristics.

Taste was caramel malts with enough hopping to balance things out.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied and fairly refreshing and smooth after a nice hike along the Guadalupe river.

Overall not a bad beer, a nice compliment to the bbq.

The bottle says it is has ABV 5% but the description on BA says 4.5% Its not really red and its not Amber, it is more like a translucent brown. Notmuch of a head has some lacing. Not bitter at all. nice and refreshing. Could use some more Hops.

12 oz. bottle, pilsner glass

A – Very much a rich, red/amber color, suggesting caramel and Vienna malts. Very clear. A half-inch of off-white bubbles rises and then leaves quickly. Looks very clean.

S – A lot of fruit aroma, red delicious apples, green grapes, maybe blueberries. Crisp bread crust and light toffee malt, and some light floral hop notes.

T – A ton of the same fruitiness as on the nose, apples and cherry skin, a touch of blueberry. Floral, slightly herbal hops. The backbone is all malt, bread crust, biscuit, sweet caramel, and light toffee. Just a touch of hop bitterness throughout.

M – Although a bit sweet on the front end, carbonation is sudsy though moderate, and the touch of bitterness on the finish helps the balance. Medium-full in body with some residual sweetness, mildly juicy throughout. A touch of oiliness on the back end.

O – Not a style I gravitate towards, but one of the more impressive reds I’ve had. To style, flavorful yet mostly clean. A bit more carbonation and attenuation could serve it well.
