pint out of a cask with added amarillo hops.
look is red and hazy, with a small sprinkling of filmy head. smell is light and wheaty, with some sweet malt and bitter earthy hops. the taste is similar: slightly bitter, oaky, dry leaves, herbal hops, slight vanilla.
really good amber, more of an imperial

Remarkable aroma coming off this one. One is hit in the face with maltiness, but an antiqued musk of something else that, after contemplation, could only be the oak barrel and perhaps a heavy dose of yeast. Not that this is unpleasant: it's refreshingly unique from many other beers and could easily become an acquired taste. The color is rich and beautiful but there's nothing stunning about how it sits in the mouth. It's very tasty, if one is looking for an unfamiliar and perhaps challenging taste.

Pours a clear red color with two fingers of head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down th glass.
For a label that claims is malt forward, I smell mostly hops. Citrus, pine, and herbal. Then I get the caramel from the malt. Not getting much of the oak in the aroma.
Nice caramel and bready flavor. The hops add nice complimentary flavor of citrus and pine. Mild oakiness and vanilla notes. Bitterness is low but enough to make this a nicely balanced beer. Finishes with just a touch of alcohol.
Lucid nailed the carbonation in this beer. So smooth and softly textured. Just wish the body was a little fuller.
The oak could of come out some more. Otherwise a very solid red ale bringing some good flavor.
