On draft. Amberish color with a red hue/ Very smooth, light hops. Very drinkable. Not very complex. Sessionable.

Big thanks to Steve for sending this bottle my way. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours a dark reddish-copper color with a thin off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some amber and brown malt. Overall, quite malty for an amber. Some piney and resinous hops come along, plus a bit of citrus. Flavor loses those hops, and is a bit earthy and malty all at once. Not too much sweetness; more generic malt flavor. Medium body with moderate bitterness through the finish. A bit disappointing for a Lawson’s brew.

on tap-pours deep red with qa tight offwhite head and trailing lace. Aroma is medium malt-roasty, spice hops. Taste is medium malt-roasty, spice hops.
