Draft at Brewpub. Nice ruby amber color, minimal head, malt aroma. Just a nice drinkable red ale with a richer body that one would expect. The malts give it the solid feel and the taste is grainy.
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark ruddy burnt amber color with a finger’s worth of foamy white head that dissipates evenly. Extremely light messy lace.
The aroma had some caramel / toffee malts, light pine, some citrus, then some light breadiness.
The flavor brings all of the previously mentioned aromas to blend nicely. Light malty aftertaste, sly malty sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Good carbonation. Piney bitterness tries to grip with an even harshness on my tongue.
Overall, this was a decent amber ale that I could have again, preferably with food. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
An amber ale with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light cinnamon hearts, ok. In mouth, a sweet nutty malt with caramel notes, lightly roasted character, grassy hop, ok. On tap at brewery. AdamChandler (4977) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Dark golden. No nose. Harsh pine and bitter. Most of these so far just have a smooth mouthfeel and too much bitterness for the malt backbone hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2012

Draft at the brewpub - Pours a darkish red-amber in color with a small whitish head. Aroma is only slightly malty woth some hops. Flavor is pretty much the same. Not that impressive, but drinkable...
