3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Blackstone Brewery in Nashville, TN.
Beautiful red color. Great floral hop aroma. A little more than is usually expected in a "Red Ale." In a city that is generally lacking in acceptable micro brews, this one stands far above the rest. Great restaurant and a great beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, malty and reddish amber in coloring with a lovely off white head. Fresh, fruity hop nose, with some flowery honey notes as well. This is a great bitter defenitely made in a British tradition with an American hop twist. Smooth with a balanced mouthfeel and a dry, crisp finish. This one covers all the style bases, a definite home run.

On cask at Blackstone. Poured ruby with a dense tan head. Floral hop nose. Sweet malty taste with a floral finish. Soft mouthfeel. I thought it was great on cask, but didn’t try the draught, which probably wasn’t quite so good.
