Pint at the brewpub. Looks pretty darn red without any head formation. This is malt leaning ale with flavors of caramel and biscuits, maybe just a grassy note here and there. Very inoffensive even for this style. I don’t have much to say about it.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours copper with offwhite head. The aroma is toast and slight caramel with a roasty touch and a hint of lemon. The flavor is toast, a little bit of caramel, and slight roast. Distant earthy hops and a slight metallic note are in the finish.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Amber with good lacing. Nose is very light. Clean mouth feel with a light nuttiness and a short, bitter hoppy finish. Different for a "red" beer. Nice, but not great.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Orange with off white head and lace. Light caramel on the nose. Light caramel with nice light reisiny finish. A bit thin but with good carbonation. A tick away from being very good.
