On draught at the Hereford & Hops brewpub in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light copper amber brew with a creamy off white head that slowly dissolves to a white ring with excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, a touch of brown sugar and toffee. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of roasted caramel malt, some flowery hops, and sweet apples. Finish is semi-sweet, some caramel apple flavor with a lingering bitterness with some alcohol warmth. It’s actually quite different from the Cleary’s Red Ale with more caramel and alcohol character.
