Can, in Sedona. Pretty amber with a huge, fluffy, off white head. Aroma of lightly toasted caramel malts and some pine. Tastes pretty sweet up front, with some nuttiness, bread, and toasty malts. Finishes nice and dry, with a good dose of herbal hops. Nice.

How did I miss this? This was from my AZ trip back in April, here goes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking ruddy brown to amber color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipates to a semi-thick close to thin lacing coating the sides of the glass. The smell had a nice dry caramel maltiness with a fairly decent allocation of bitter piney hops but were pretty subdued for the most part. The taste was mainly sweet caramel malts and they danced nicely along my taste buds. The palate was about a medium in body with a semi-sessionable quality to it. Overall, good red ale worthy of having again.
