On draft at the Brewery. Good red color, light carbonation. Well balanced- some bitter, piney hops w/ caramel, slightly nutty, sweet malts. Usually prefer my Reds a little more hoppy, but this was good.

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.

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.
