Along those eastern fringes where the earth marries sky, a swell of vermillion floods the horizon, and soon the virgin rays of the rising sun fire flickering tendrils that glisten red in the dew drops dangling from branches that only last month were burdened by icicles.  And like the rebirth of this fertile land with the advent of spring, you celebrate your own reawakening with a heavenly pint of this honey red ale.  For in your glass you behold an angelic beverage of auburn and red, and with your first sip you are animated with smooth, bready malt, which melts away to reveal depthful layers in a delicate dance of caramel and earthy, spicy hops.  And now those sunbeams flicker red through your pint, and as those rising bubbles release their subtle aromas of flowers and honey, your invigoration embodies the life-giving earth and the celebration of spring.
