3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap. It pours a darker amber color with a light off-white head. Red hues only if held to the light. The aroma is of toasted malts, a little fruit, and a clean hop fare. The body is light. The taste was offset by an unwanted bit of astringency and there was a higher hop character than I might have expected.

Draft from Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford, CT. The sweet, malty aroma is profiled from the fizzing tan head of this ruby beer. This beer has a roasted flavor, almost an almond note with hints of fruit. Solid session beer.
