3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is amber/light brown with a creamy, off white head. Bottle is a bit over carbonated. Aroma is dominated by citrus and floral hop. Taste is where this beer misses the mark. Starts with a nice caramel and biscuit malt flavor and gives way to a distinct foot like taste as the hop bite kicks in. Must have something to do with the balance of the citrusy Centennial hop with the caramel malts. Mouthfeel is medium, and finish is a nice hop bite with a slightly lingering stickiness and bitterness. This sounded like a beer I’d really like, but it doesn’t come thru

This brew had a nice crimson color. There was nothing memorable about the aroma of taste, except a bit of bitterness at the end. What I did notice and like was that it was a very nice brew overall.
I have had several beers from 4 Hands, none great, but everyone was good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium to light iced tea color. Tan head is a little rocky and dissipates quickly---only got about 1/2 foam and I poured it straight down the middle of a tulip glass. Slight citrus aroma and maltyness. Good crisp taste with only slight bitterness, thin mouthfeel but that’s okay for this. 4 stars.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at taproom. Pours light red with a white head that disappears quickly. Fairly big grapefruit on the nose. Huge grapefruit on the tongue. It does pucker the tongue a bit which is nice I suppose. Finishes clean. Nice.

Super malty red ale with a nice hopps backbone. Smells malty. Had a sweet finish with a hip bite at the end. Pours copper in color with a white head. A decent beer. Had out of a bottle at home.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Reddish amber pour with about a half inch of head on top. Abrasive hoppy aroma. Lighter orange and pine notes. Flavors of resin, pine sap, caramel and some earth. Astringent bitterness in the finish. Hints of booze come through as well. Interesting.
