2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

At big Seth’s going away party on 11/2/2013; was an awesome day! Aroma is earth hop. Flavor is thin, watery, bitter, gross. This is a huge miss.

On tap at the alchemist pub in Waterbury, VT. Very easy to drink, with a sweet honey finish that doesn’t linger.

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.

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.
