Great taste for a red ale. Perfect color and head on the draft pour. Very fresh. Not too much bite. Not a red ale fan, generally, but this one might fix that.

Strong caramel malt notes and a some slight roasted flavors. Looks nice and sloppy. Draft at DTW. Mmm somewhat nutty. Not too strong on the nose. Thick and relatively heavy mouthfeel.

drdisque (822) - Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
From 16 oz. can at Lions game. Appearance, aroma, and flavor is overwhelmingly of strong caramel malts. That is the primary flavor. Also some roasted notes and slightly sweet fruitiness to the finish. Pretty solid amber ale.

Tap sample. Poured clear dark ruby hue with medium frothy white head that lasted with very good lacing. Medium aroma of earthy hops and malt. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt and hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

9/11/2014. 16 oz. can. Redbrown with a tan head. Sweet malty aromas with dark fruit and light hops. Malt forward brew, earthy with a hoppy finish. Not bad at all.
