2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical brew pub red ale. Very sweet and sticky. Not to pleasant aftertaste. A little on the weaker side aswell.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light western hop aroma -- also lightly caramel. The ’red’ was actually less red than their ale. Briny brothy, medium hopping. Clumsy.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap-pours a standard clear copper color w/a slight white head. Not a lot of aroma, a touch of roasted malt. Has a weak roasted malt/barley flavor w/just a touch of hops-does give it a little more bite than your standard Amber. Slight metalic/medicinal finish. Not a great example-but better than the Macro crap.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
True to style, this beer is very fresh tasting. Definately hoppy, it leaves a soft, satisfying finish.
