Pint at the brewpub. Looks pretty darn red without any head formation. This is malt leaning ale with flavors of caramel and biscuits, maybe just a grassy note here and there. Very inoffensive even for this style. I don’t have much to say about it.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with good lacing. Nose is very light. Clean mouth feel with a light nuttiness and a short, bitter hoppy finish. Different for a "red" beer. Nice, but not great.

Orange with off white head and lace. Light caramel on the nose. Light caramel with nice light reisiny finish. A bit thin but with good carbonation. A tick away from being very good.
