Tap... Poured red with a hint orange and a beige head. Aroma of earthy, leafy malt and hops. Well carbonated and a lot more hops in the initial flavor than amber ales (which is nice). Other sweet, candy-like sugar-malt notes before the dry, hoppy finish.

Even more wonderful organic beers. This time a red with a significant roasted barley taste. All in all one of the better red ales.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent orange bronze with a clingy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malt and a fairly fresh citrusy hoppiness. Body starts about average for the style with a decent toasty sweetness and resiny hop balance before a crisp, bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and smooth.

Another quality beer from Laurelwood. Bottle from Johnís Market poured a beautiful red color with a nice white head. Good lacing. A little hoppy for an amber. More like a I.R.A. Still, a well balanced beer.
