3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber to pint glass. Aromas of overt rich malt but also a hint of cardboard in the background. No detectable hop present - how unusual for an American Red! Pours clear amber-mahogany with an off-white head that retains as just a collar and a dusting across the top. Taste is bread and biscuit malts. Moderate high carbonation with a thin mouthfeel for the malt. Back half of palate is a rough bitterness that seems a little medicinal and finishes astringent. Some good aspects of this beer tail off in the taste, especially as it warmed.

Great aroma of caramel and nuts with a bit of chocolate. Deep ruby red color. Very caramel and actually a bit hop forward in taste. Slight smokiness. Smells better than it tastes.

Draught @ the Beach Chalet restaurant. Clear deep golden to amber pour. Aroma is spicy, some herbs, yeasty and with some grains. Flavor is slightly bitter, grainy and malty. A bit watery and boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Toasted malt, toffee, and bready hops. A hint of fruit esters, floral and grassy hops, and some celery notes on the finish. The flavor has a bit more pronounced celery/vegetal quality. Sweet bread, toast, and toffee malt base to the beer. Some light hop character, same as the aroma, and a very mild hop bitterness.

From sampler at the brewpub, 17/08/12. Pale ruby with a cream foam draping the tube. Peach confectionary and rose aroma. Sweet, peachy malt and flowers departing blandly with a hint of strawberry yeastiness. OK.

Some strong toasty and caramel taste. You can really feel the hop bitterness. But honestly speaking just not my favored taste.

Im not a huge fan of your average red ale, and this is a bit beneath average. So, I would pass on this.
