Pours a dark rust orange-amber with white head. A watered down aroma of caramel and malts. A caramel, fruit, and malt aroma with some grain. A grainy and sweet caramel malt aftertaste. steelhead3686 (269) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2017
This one poops a very rich almost deep red, but it’s clear and clean with a slightly toasted head. It doesn’t have an overwhelming aroma, but what it does have is a nice even blend of malts. The evenness continues in the taste with its lights bitterness and sweetness. It’s a light bodied beer with a thin but somewhat fizzy body. I’m not a big fan of amber ales, but this is one that I could certainly see myself drinking regularly.
