Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a glossy red color with a decent transparency about it. Streams of carbonation were seen rising. Bar pour yielded a film of a white head, barely any lacing.
The smell had a toasted caramel to toffee blend in front of a light coffee and then a light bitter piney hops in the background.
The taste was moderately sweet with a drawing bitterness trying to come out here and there.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed to be good for the style and to me as there’s a decent smoothness but still allowing a light sharpness over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a good Amber/Red ale I’d probably have again.

Enjoyed this brew recently on tap while on vacation on the cape. It was better than expected. Nice balance, malty but with a slight bite with a fragrant nose and medium color. Nice brew!
