12 oz bottle. Nice red ale. Has a little more hops than a usual red which i like.

In color it’s almost red, more on the amber end, with a touch of red. A thin, off-white head sits atop the beer, which has light carbonation and no head retention. Lacing is wet and slides down too quickly to retain itself. The aroma is a pleasant mix of soft caramel malts and light hops, but very plain. In the mouth, well, it’s kinda weird. It feels a little too thin on the palate. Full in flavor, more or less, but a little too thin-bodied for the amount of caramel in this. It feels a little too wet, too. Bitterness comes through in the finish atop a stale caramel grain flavor, but oxidation seems to be ruining the experience for me. Every once and a while this tastes like it’ll redeem itself, but it never really does. It’s, really, just as I pegged it: a mediocre red/amber ale. Would I suggest it to someone else? No.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 This is a great red ale with a nice malty flavor but an even better hoppy finish. It is heavy enough to go with red meats and fine to enjoy on its own. Very drinkable, especially on $3 tall beer Wednesdays. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Clear medium dark amber, one finger head, sheets of lace. Nice, cleansing caramel malt, grows easily through the palate to a politely bittered finish. Very well done, quite drinkable, particularly for sessions. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2013
On tap at the brewpub with Kramer, Andrew, and J-Dadmond in between sessions of The Festival. Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Soft musk. Crisp malt, light hops. Gentle malt and toast. Soft hops and malt on the finish. BeerandBlues2 (13814) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel and toast malt with floral hops and pear esters. Flavor is malt forward with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. robobeerbelly (78) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2013
This was a pretty good beer. Little bit light on the flavor and a little bit bitter for a palate.
