@ Thompsons Brewpub, Salem OR.
Been a while since i got to this brew pub again, so went in last night.
Saw thios on the chalk board and asked if it was the same as Workingmans Red , it wasn’t.
Nice looking dark amber ale with a nice sized bubbly/frothy tan head.
The aroma was actually quite strong for a McMenains beer, mainlly of toasty malts , though hops are detectable.
The taste was mostly like the mouthfeel the main thrust of this beer is the malts which were quite nice and as I said "toasty" there is a pleasant enough hop after taste that lingers well.
Very nice mouthfeel ,very smooth and not highly carbonated.
A drinkable Amber, would have again.
