Serving: from bottle--purchased at Sound Brewery. Aroma: moderate apple aroma. Appearance: very small, light-brown, initial head that disappeared in seconds. Fully diminishing longevity and fair lacing. Hazy, dark-orange body. Taste: moderately sweet, cherry-like initial flavor, and moderately sour finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: good.

22 oz. bottle- Pours very dark ruby red with a thin tan head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet, some hops. The taste is the same, light caramel malts and hops imparting a dryness in the finish. Body is medium to light and carbonation is somewhat high. This was good, not great, I actually liked that it was a lighter body, not so thick caramel malty, but nothing special here.
