Not bad. Medium amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is interesting. Roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Tons of carbonation on the palate. Flavor is much like the aroma. Roasted malt and caramel. Finishes bright and spicy.

A standard red ale, well-made, but just not anything to sit an marvel at when you are drinking it which can be nice sometimes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a clear reddish-brown color with chill haze and moderate off-white head. Aromas of bread, roasted barley and very faint hops. Pronounced malt-sweetness just barely balanced by hops bitterness and dryness of unmalted grain, some fruitiness from the ale fermentation. Light-body with a well-rounded mouthfeel. Well-crafted and easy to drink.
