Smells malty with a hint of caramel. This has a bit more hops from the start than the first three of the sampler. Some light caramel that sticks to the front of your gums. Decent stuff.

Bottle via the Beer Gnome at work.. thank oh kind and gentle creature. Pours a brilliant amber/ copper with light tan head that completly disapears. Moderate nose of sweet malts and some grass. Body is just under the full requirement but is nonethelss bold. Sweet caramel malts are nearly chewy and long lasting. A luxuriously silky finish. hops quietly tinker in the background.

Bottle. Transparent amber pour. Big tan head that recedes to half an inch. Aroma is a ton of caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, a little alcohol, and some sourness. Medium body and carbonation.

Strong fruity/caramel scent, and a taste that corresponded with it perfectly. Slightly syrupy and nearly free of hops. Flavor that lingered on the tongue. Very good example of a hopless red ale. Went great with pizza.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark colored body.
The aroma is rich with caramel malt notes.
The taste is toffee sweetness with a touch of bitterness to balance it out.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a nice and malty ale.
