Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rudimentary amber ale, but striking red color (befitting the theme of this brewpub).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the brewpub - a very malty amber ale, so much so that it is hard to even notice those hops trying to break through - very sweet, nutty, with touches of nutmeg and other spices (this makes things a little more interesting) - the boiled vegetable character I noticed in their IPA is even more noticeable here, and it really detracts from my enjoyment of the beer.
