Big bubbly off-white head. More dirty brown in color with red highlights toward the light. Nose of grain. Taste is hops upfront, grain in the end. Light cotton mouth dry finish. Good during dinner. Overall not bad, I wouldn’t drink again. Tasted with AirForceHops.

Draft. Pours a ruby bruin body with an off white head. Malty body with a caramel malt tone. Cereal notes, bread and toasted malt. Very dank wet malt tones, alright but not a huge fan of the style.

Poured to the growler from Jk himself. Great to get other beers from Alchemist but American red ale isn't my ideal beer. If it is, good color, good dirty finish. Tastes great and is a good start before you finish with a HT.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub on November 4, 2010.
Pours an amber-red color with a good light tan head. A finger or two worth with some bits of lace here and there. The nose brings out quite a bit of toasted bread, caramel, and some light dough. Amber malt in there as well. Some very light earthy and floral hops.
The flavor is just really, really nice. This is insanely malty and flavorful for the alcohol level. Caramel and bread crust plus a bit of toast and a nice earthiness to round things out. Great body with a very nice level of bitterness. A very quaffable brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Gorgeous color, head, lace. Hoppy nose seeps onto the palate alongside red malts and steeped tea. A little more mild on the palate than I'd like; bring me more flavor and we'll talk. Interesting, though, and glad I got to try it.

From 10/26 notes. Growler purchased from the brewery 10/23, drank three days later. Pours a muddy, murky light brown with 1 finger head. Not really red at all. This is not a very visually appealing beer. Nose is earthy greens with some subtle fruity, grassy notes. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, but with decent carbonation. Taste is vegetal, some hoppy pine notes, salad, greens, hints of butter. Finish is mild bitter, watery, vegetal, leafy. Honesty this was a disappointment, overall it’s kind of a mess. I would probably pass on this one, in its current form, if given the chance again.
