A fine red ale here. Had a pint at Sweetwater in Burlington. Pours a charming light, ruby and slightly hazy hue with very little head. Taste is nicely balanced between the hops and malts. Would make a lovely session beer.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with jjpm74 (thanks!). Poured a dark and cloudy redi/amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, light caramel, and I’m getting faint banana. Tastes of citrus, nuts, and toasted malts. Tastes were like the body, on the thin and watery side.

Not really that good. Brown pour and a very small head. Aroma is pretty malty and not all that bad. But the flavor has some malt mixed with a funky sour finish...it almost tastes skunked. Not my style at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A hazy reddy amber coloured beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is nutty and a little toasty. Fruity flavours with more toasty bready malts. Reasonably sweet. Not much hop evident, but drinkable, if a little unexciting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Light amber, off-white head. Aroma is fruity and caramelly. Strong sweet toffeeish malt aroma. Falvour is decent but way too sweet. Caramel and overdone crystal malt. Some sweet estery fruitiness. Low bitterness. Meh... way too sugary.
