3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz. can. Deep red color with light of lacing down the glass. Aroma is toasted caramel, English toffee and an earthy hop element.
The base is mostly caramel malt and toffee. It displays an earthy pine or citrus hop in the finish. The caramel / toffee really over takes the hops. This doesn’t have any real issues to write about… just a very simple beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 16 fl. oz. can. An unfiltered amber-red color with a long-lasting cream colored head. Soft and lacing. Great toasted malt nose with a caramel/toffee sweetness to boot. Medium body that is also smooth. The toasted malts are up front but then this biting earthy bitterness roars in from behind and lingers on at the finish. A decent red.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The New England Taphouse Grille.
Comes to the table a slightly hazy deep reddish brown with a decent sized ff white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of caramel and light brown sugar with bits of earthy citrus hop. The flavor is lightly sweet dark sugary malt with plenty of earth and citrus to counter.Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Standard red ale, serviceable but not horribly exciting.

Pours a birch beer colored red with thin lacing head. Aroma of sweet smelling earthy woodiness. Slighty bitter with a bit of a harsh yet sweet maltiness lending itself to a nutty taste and then ending with a wooden taste. A bitterness lingers afterward.
