Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Clear copper color, small off-white head that diminishes instantly. Aroma is malts, a bit sweetish, caramel, maple syrup perhaps? Taste malts, caramel, sweetness, again some maple syrup or something similar. Average body and carbonation. Meh, not really great.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draught at Shade Tree Cycle - ABQ. Clear deep amber. Or with lasting white head. No big aromas but light-to-medium body with early malty flavor balance then dry finish. Clean hops and malt make for a nice easy-drinking ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle- Aroma was light as well the initial drink but then hits you with some citrus from the hops. Medium body of malts flavors and mouth-feel with a nice bittering feel and flavoring that lasts afterwards, but not where it’s a bad bittering aftertaste. Off orange color with white head.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fantástica "Red Ale" se não a melhor neste estilo, o retrogosto de caramelo é mais equilibrado que o comum, possui uma excelente carbonatação e um corpo incrível quase que cremoso.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy to unclear hazelnut red brown with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Grain, crackers, raisins, caramel, dark berries, light herbal/flowery hop notes. Medium body, oily texture but the finish is a bit thin. Light/medium sweet and bitter. Pretty easy drinking malt focused brew, but I don’t find it overly interesting.

On tap @ Moylans. Amber/orange pour with an off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel, earthy hops, and toffee. Kind of watery, though. Some light esters. Flavor is just kind of sweet. Watery mouthfeel. Earthy hops provide light bitterness. Caramel, toffee, and grass. A fair amount of apple, too.
