orange amber with a lasting white ring on top.
malty caramel aroma along with notes of chocolate, toasted nuttiness (mild coffee, too), roast, cream and orange.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Arundel Mills - Didn’t like this one very much. Expected a very drinkable red, but the taste really was off. Color / appearance was good and inviting. Not recommended, but maybe this was a bad batch.
