Has a medium malt and fruit presence. Darker red body with tan head. Mainly malt flavor backbone with some fruity plum dectectable. Smooth and refreshing brew went down the hatch rather quickly.
Poured from the tap with an initial head that is just over a finger thick. The head lingers for a bit and is a creamy pale tan color. The beer is a lightly hazy, reddish amber color. The aroma is dominated by malt notes, though all in all fairly light; I get notes of biscuit malt, some caramel/ toffee notes and a berry like fruitiness.
The taste is lightly sweet up front with a focused fruit note that reminds me of strawberries and a bit of something like a sweet plum. The beer is quite quaffable, it just slides down the throat and is almost too drinkable. It has a nice bitterness in the finish that does not quite balance the malt and fruit notes, but still is noticeable. As the beer warms up a bit it begins to pick up some notes of biscuit and toasted grain. In the end this is just so quaffable; the malt really start to shine after it warms up a bit; a mix of fruit and grain that is balanced by a true "kiss of hops".
