2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml can. Amber red colour, small creamy head, off white in colour, decent retention. Aroma was somewhat malty with a grainy edge, some caramel sweetness. Flavour is grainy, some caramel, faint hops in the finish, slightly grassy. Grainy dryish finish. Average body and carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
My Bottom Line:
This deceptively red brew shares nothing of note, not even caramel aromas that are typical to a beer of this billing. Bland and fizzy.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the gleaming dark red.
-That color doesn’t come from malts; it’s obvious in both the nose and flavor profile.
-Tasted blind, this could have been a blond ale. And a tasteless one at that.
-This is obviously drinkable, but eminently forgettable. There are no flavors or aromas to hang on to.
-This is as dishonest a product as their hopless ’India Pale Ale’.

Nice red color. Small head. Very light taste. A bit too light for my taste for an red. Average.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smell of metal, sugar, some malt. Copper colour, white head. Aroma of metal, paper, some sugar and alcohol. Finishes with paper. This isnt a good one. Lively carbon, slightly oily texture. Mid-light body. Mid-sweet.

Pours a clear reddish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Tastes of sweet malt with a bad aftertaste. Light to medium bodied and very carbonated.

At Puck’s sports bar. Good color, but below my expectation. I had a high one because I like the IPA. Watery. I don’t like watery one. Fruity taste.

Draft. Clear amber pour, taste and aroma of caramel, a bit of grain. Little bit of sweetness. terrible body like the others in this line.

Had a pint with Mexican food, pairs better than crap Sol or Corona. It did the job, not hideous.

473 ml. can. Thanks Doug! Pours a clear copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, and a bit of fruit. On the thin side. Drinkable but not memorable.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is light roasted malts, caramel and bland hops. Taste is rich malts with a bland bitterness. Pretty uninspiring overall. A clear amber body with a pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Bottle. Clear honey brown, cream soda, mild caramel in the nose. Thin watery body. The taste is weak watery caramel, a bit acrid bitter malts kind of a sugary sweet finish. Meh.
