3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is amber in color with a dense khaki colored head.
S: A solid citrus hop aroma such as grapefruit and orange with a bit of floral notes, too. Plenty of sweet caramel malts, toffee, and some toasted bread character.
T: On the hoppier side of the style but still a good balance of the toffee and caramel malt along with the citrus and slightly piney hops.
M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation.
D: A nice red/amber ale, which seems to usually be a terrible style for brewpubs. Would drink this again.
