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!

Dear pour copper red. Nose all sweet malt Some toffee. Taste sweet malt up front and even more sweet mid palate. Very light bitter finish. Pretty easy sinking after all day on the boat.

On tap at then brewery. Cellar light amber pour with an off white head. Malty aromas. Pleasant malty notes with a hint of citrus hop bitterness. Not overly complex but solid. Average body and mouthfeel.

Draft at Cooke’s seafood on vacation. Pour has a mostly brown color with a bit of red highlights. Aroma has malts, light hops, and light bitterness. Mouth feel is medium light with good carbonation. Flavor is typical red malt, decent dose of hops, and a clean finish with light bitterness.
