Drank this one at the brewery. This reminded me more of what I think a Red ale is than most that say they are a Red ale. Dark red appearance. This had a earthy sweetness followed by well balanced hoppiness that was quit enjoyable. Clean finish.

Reddish-amber pour with a nice head. Red ale aroma (caramel and malts). medium bitterness, some sweetness in the finish. A good red ale.

12 ounce can poured a red/copper color with aromas of light citrus, caramel, with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is much the same as the aroma, decent little amber ale that I wouldn’t mind drinking in the heat.

Can while tailgating the Cubs’ Spring Training game in Mesa. Copper appearance with an off white head. Caramel, toffee, a bit earthy aroma. Rich, toasty, caramel malty, a touch piney flavor. Easy to drink.

Wasn’t expecting uch from this and it (slightly) over delivered. I just picked up a cheap, local brew from AJ’s while home for the holidays. It pours a nice orangey-amber color with a very minimal head. The aroma is a little grassy/wheat, and a little more pine and lemon. The flavor is a little sweeter, maltier though.

(12oz can thanks to zdk9) clear amber-red, soapy tan bubbles. nose of cinnamon, apples, caramel. Taste is a bit oxidized, caramel, sweet, low carbonation. Nice caramel linger.
