3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This sounds a lot like the beer I’m drinking, now called Bellevue Winter Ale--west coast double red ale. Maybe my differences in perception from 1st review are just that, but maybe the recipe was tweaked a little. Resin, caramel, fresh plum. Busy off-white head on slightly hazy dark amber. I taste lemon, cherry, alcohol, woodsmoke. Tingles the mouth, while light on the palate. Tangy finish. Nothing wrong with but not quite to my taste.

Clear dark amber color with ivory head. Nice floral, tea leaf, pine, spicy hop aromas. Medium body. Hoppy floral, tropical fruit, spicy hoppy flavors with a solid toasted caramel base brew__good hoppy red ale.
