Draft. Average carbonation with hoppy aroma. Very well finished beer, not overly hoppy or bitter. Very smooth. Clean finish. Will definitely buy again.

Reddish brown with tan head. Caramel malt aroma. Medium-light body, lightly carbonated. Flavor is fairly sweet up front matching the aroma but settles in with some drier malts and a touch of hops at the end. Pretty good balance.

From a can. No date. Reddish-brown pour with a foamy tan head. There is a noticeable toffee malt sweetness on the nose but perhaps some syrup. Earthy hop note. The mouthfeel is medium with some acidity. The taste is sweet and malt forward like brown bread with a mild earthy bitterness at the end. Pretty standard for the style.

Red copper color off white head. Toasty malt nose. Some roast here, some caramel malt. Hops and roast give some bite in finish.

greg extra can. malty english style red rather ruined by hops. not a good partnership. modestly drinkable.a bit thin.

Pours deep burgundy straight from the brewery. Just enough malt notes to counteract the bitterness. Stop by the brewery for an amazing tour.

luttonm (6979) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Reddish deep brown, small cream. Fruity malt aroma, very mild hops. Astringent malty body. Odd bitterness, not very pleasing.

Ktwse (5677) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Pours clear copper with low off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, hazelnuts. Taste is roasty and nutty sweet with a mild citrusy finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

snoworsummer (6285) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Draft at the Lost Dog Pub. Pours clear reddish copper with a fizzy off white head. Smells like toasted caramel, toffee, with a hint of coffee and bitter piney hops. Tastes very bitter and like burnt malt, a hint of sweetness. Light/medium body and carbonation.

Quick3Beers (1515) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a copper from a can, nice malty aroma is balanced with floral hops, a good balanced beer, perfect for drinking on the Cape in early spring.

Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a glossy red color with a decent transparency about it. Streams of carbonation were seen rising. Bar pour yielded a film of a white head, barely any lacing. The smell had a toasted caramel to toffee blend in front of a light coffee and then a light bitter piney hops in the background. The taste was moderately sweet with a drawing bitterness trying to come out here and there. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed to be good for the style and to me as there’s a decent smoothness but still allowing a light sharpness over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a good Amber/Red ale I’d probably have again.
