Six-pack from grocery. Caramel and biscuit, with a touch of hay/grass aroma. Medium body with a a mix of bitter and sweet. Finishes easy with some lingering sweetness. Pretty good overall.

Very little head, but nice and pillowy; light and fluffy. Nice apricot undertone, with a sugary aftertaste. Easy drinking here, and thatís what I like best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. For an amber style beer, not too bad. Caramel notes in the nose and taste. Some very mild bitterness in the finish and a touch dry. Medium carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had an amber/red colored body with a one finger white foamy head that leaves a great amount of speckled spider web lacing.
The smell had a decent amount of caramel malts, lightly hopped.
The taste was mainly sweet through the malts, dry bitter aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, it sat really light, was pretty sessionable, and the carbonation is pretty smooth and decent for the style.
Overall, this was not a bad American Red ale, but it wasnít exactly anything to really seek out again either.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a small off-white head. Nose is a little bitter, like some hops in there have turned old. I can get a little caramel in there, but itís subtle. Taste is also old and a little bitter. Very little substance, and itís clearly been on the shelf too long.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Looks exactly like their "pale ale" and frankly tastes almost identical, too. Yep, itís amber. Very even keeled and clean, with little to distinguish it in any way whatsoever. Mild caramel malt, sweet finish, light hop kiss. (#5393, 12/1/2013)

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber with a small off white head - hints of caramel malt in the aroma - Bdoy is of caramel malt with a small hint of hops - Short thin finish - Something is not quite there and it is not interesting at all

Thanks to iNBe. Reminds me of the ales that came out in the early days of the microbrew movement. Decent stuff, not super exciting put very drinkable. Serving: Bottle

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours cloudy amber with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a way too sweet red malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Not much taste.
