Mahogany-reddish in color... Aroma is minimal malty sweetness, fairly weak aroma... Fairly sweet malt flavor, notes of caramel and toffee...alcohol is fairly prevalent, not the best red... Not very balanced and not the easiest to drink... Below average...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery. The look is clear and amber with a minimal white head. Aroma was very weak and couldn’t pick out much more than some malty sweetness. Taste was ok but a little thin. Caught some notes of caramel and a light hop taste but mostly sweet. Not that great and won’t drink again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Clear amber body with a minimal white head. Hard to get much of aroma in this smokey room, but there is some caramel notes. Taste is toasted grain, bread, nutshells and an odd flavor (olive tapenade). Thin and dry with medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark copper brown pour with a thin off white head.
it smells a bit sweet... toffee, malt and strawberries.
the palate is a bit sugary but surprisingly good... caramel malty, toffee, biscuit, grassy, earthy hops and a dry alcoholic finish... the abv% is not unpleasant, it is just noticeable and thinning. .
the medium body is crisp and soft due to ample carbonation. 5/3/7/3/12/3.0
