UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Growler form Growlers to Go This is the first growler purchased from the location on the Boulevard in Richmond. T he ale poured a clear red color with an off white head and lacing. The aroma of caramel malts and some yeast. This is malty beer with a very pleasant taste and very drinkable. The ale had medium body and average. Carbonation. The finish was clean with no bitterness. 12 oz can from Growlers to Go Nice ale. The can version was very frothy (filled the glass with foam).

Ruby red amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Sweet caramel malt dominates the nose. Sweet caramel malt and a rock candy like sweetness. A touch of what I think are earthy hops. Medium body with good carbonation.

Pours kind of a burnt scarlet color with an average head but a lot of lace. The aroma is sweet and somewhat nutty, but with floral hops dominating. The flavor is very, very mild. A little caramel, a little bready malt. Slightly rich finish, something like humus.
