Can. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is toasty with some dough coming through underneath. Taste is lightly sweet up front, but has a bit of toast throughout. Meh.

Unfortunately drank out of a non beer clean glass, and there is whether it’s in my mind or legit a taste of detergent. Caramel aroma, nice ruby appearance. Mostly malt forward, but has a moderate hop bitterness to back up the malt. Medium light bodied, finishes with a little piney and woodsy hop flavor. At 5.8 it’s Sessionable, but could use a little more body in my opinion.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a semi-dark red and leaves a brown/red colored body, half finger white foamy head that dies within about thirty seconds, some light lacing that slides into the body; the aroma has caramel malts coming through in a bland sort of way, shallow earthiness to it; the flavor is mainly sweet through the caramel malts, caramel aftertaste, dry finish; its pretty easy on the palate and is somewhat sessionable, carbonation is somewhat smooth for the style and good to me; overall, not a bad American Red/Amber ale, though it could be construed as an Irish Red because of the lack of hops, still acceptable to have again, though I may not seek out

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich ruby and deep amber coloured body with a bright almost violet tint and a large, seven centimetre tall tan head, rather billowy. Aroma of malt, caramel and a hint of light spices, all with a good yeast nose. Medium-bodied; Deep caramel and sweet flavour with a bit of raisins, figs and a little earthy malt note with toffee. Aftertaste shows a touch of spices, but the main flavour revolves around the good malt, strong sweetness from pit fruits and raisins and a little spice kick at the very end. Overall, a good earthy and rather sweet beer with a lot of caramel notes and hints of spices and earthy flavours. Great to try,and the can makes it that much better, especially from the last frontier. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-May-2013 for US$1.70 sampled at home in Washington a few hours before leaving again for Alaska on 03-October-2013.

Tap. Pours a clear reddish amber body with some finger frothy beige head. The nose is sweet and slightly grainy with just a light hint of floral hops. The flavor is on the sweeter side as well, there’s a distinct sweet white grape note under the caramel that isn’t all that pleasant. Minimal to no hops present. Light to medium bodied with a bit of clingy stickiness and fizzy carbonation. Not terrible, but nothing I’d choose to finish a pint of.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can:   Deep amber, thin to moderate frothy off-white head, little lacing.   Pale breadiness and soft apple/pear skin on the nose.   Moderately sweet pale breadiness up front, a little fruity in an apple or pear aspect.   Not as malty as I like my Ambers.   Low bitterness, very minute.   Certainly more fruity than most.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of apple/pear skin, light breadiness, toasted malts.   Easy drinking, but could stand to be more malty and less fruity.   Tiz okay.
