An excellent red ale that is full bodied without the corresponding strength. This allows one to enjoy another (easily).

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Intense pine-sprusy, super sweet fruity, malt-syrupy aroma, very pleasant. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, with a bit sharp bitterness in aftertaste. Medium body, a bit too spongy mouthfeel. But seems it is mean to be easy drinkable pale ale. Weird but I don’t find it as amber ale at all.

Appearance: Rich Dark Brown Amber, Minimal Head and Lace. Medium Carbonation
Smell: Citrus Rind, Honey, Orange, Faint Caramel Malt.
Taste: Cirtus Hops, Caramel Malt, Slight Apple Tartness
Mouth-feel: Big Carbonation, Medium Body, Dry Finish, Lingering Tartness
Overall: Wonderful Red
Comments: This is an excellent Red Ale, that could be argued as a red IPA, as the hop character is huge!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 Deep red with medium off-white head. Very hoppy aroma. Earth, oak, pine, some citrus and some caramel. Medium watery mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter, oak, fruity, round and lasting hop bitterness. Overall: good! Miss a bigger mouth feel. A little watery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Reddish amber beer with a beautiful fine foam, tastes very hoppy without being like an hop juice. Very clean taste despite the pronounced final bitterness. Some caramel sweetness. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice dark amber colour, with light head, but it stays around for a while. Aroma is caramel, slightly smoky and hints of hops. Body is slightly bitter, the dry hops definitely coming through, not too sweet and well balanced. Aftertaste is slightly malty and wooden. In general this is a light beer, the tastes are not too strong and are on the light side. A proper red ale in a way, balanced between taste and heavyness.
