3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is of caramel with a little grassy citrus in there. Pours a clear red amber color with decent white head. The taste is mostly balanced piney bitterness up front with some smooth sweetness on the end. It was light to medium bodied. Nothing really stood out to make it great but overall a good and smooth red ale.

Watery chemical tasting bland amber ale. Could do with more body, character and bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel and malt dominant the nose. Dark amber pour with a gigantic head. Seems a little over carbonated. Taste is more caramel with some slight hop bitterness. Palate seems a little light for the color. Overall, a good amber but not one to seek out.

Very good 'drinking beer'. Nicely red/ golden. Nice fruitiness up front (mostly crisp apple) but finished with a perfect caramel. The starting and finishing flavours go so well together, it draws you in for another sip as the caramel lingers beautifully. This is an anytime beer.

Bottled. Tan head is thin and slightly lacy. Deep amber color. Creamy caramel aroma with light toasted malts, some dried apricot, hint of raisins. Hops are slightly floral and resiny, a hint of grass. Round caramel flavor but not sweet, finish is surprisingly toasty, some molasses. Round bitterness, lingering finish. Medium body, smooth and rounded caramel malty texture.

On tap at the brewpub. It poured a reddish/amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of toasted malts, grassy hops and some toffee. The taste was similar to the aroma with some hoppiness. Decent.
