Nice red ale though nothing too special. Not sure I would purchase this but would drink of available for a change of pace

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.

Amber clear pour. Off white head. Earthy and caramel aroma. English yeast characteristics as well. Flavor is also a little yeasty. Earthy hop aroma and toasty caramel malt flavor.

Location: Draft at Bonkers!, 3/4/14
Aroma: The aroma is clean bready malts, some caramel, and some light hops as well
Appearance: It pours an amber color with a medium head and some average lacework
Flavor: The taste is clean malts, some light sweetness, and a light bitterness as well
Palate: The body leans light, but not watery, with an easy drinking mouthfeel to it
I already covered my enjoyment for Bonkers! in my review of Lumberyards APA, but it is still a great name. My opinion hasn’t changed in the 5 mins since I entered that rating. This beer, however, is only okay. I was just excited that Bonkers! has 2, count them 2, craft beers!

Great color. The lacing is heavy for such a light head. This beer just tastes a bit yeasty to me. It reminds me a lot of Fat Tire and for the life of me I can't understand how that became one if the most popular craft brews in the country. I mean...I'll drink it if I have to...if PBR and Bud are my only other options....but I really don't wanna. Yea...this red ale makes me feel like that. And it even has 50ibus. Where'd they put em? I've tasted ales with less hops and more flavor many times. I'm confused
