Great aroma of caramel and nuts with a bit of chocolate. Deep ruby red color. Very caramel and actually a bit hop forward in taste. Slight smokiness. Smells better than it tastes.

Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Toasted malt, toffee, and bready hops. A hint of fruit esters, floral and grassy hops, and some celery notes on the finish. The flavor has a bit more pronounced celery/vegetal quality. Sweet bread, toast, and toffee malt base to the beer. Some light hop character, same as the aroma, and a very mild hop bitterness.

From sampler at the brewpub, 17/08/12. Pale ruby with a cream foam draping the tube. Peach confectionary and rose aroma. Sweet, peachy malt and flowers departing blandly with a hint of strawberry yeastiness. OK.

Some strong toasty and caramel taste. You can really feel the hop bitterness. But honestly speaking just not my favored taste.

Im not a huge fan of your average red ale, and this is a bit beneath average. So, I would pass on this.
