Bottle. Deep amber-orange with a thin carbonated quick disappearing head. Smells of caramel, malt, light berries, and an earthy undertones. Medium thin light watery body with soft carbonation. Deep ruby berry sweet caramel malt with fairly faint herbal and bitter hoppy finish. Rather enjoyable overall. Like a bitter with softer undertones overall. Carbonation is a little dry.
Bottle from the brewery. Amber-orange with a medium high, fine head. Earthy caramel malt aroma. Rich amber / caramel malt flavor with some grassy hops, salt, and a mineral finish. Decent buy not all that memorable. Slightly watery. The best of their three beers.
