This one’s a conundrum. Looks great, smells funky (somebody mentioned ethanol), taste is both strong malt and hops. The smell is a little off-putting, and the taste is a little getting used to, but I can sense what the brewer was trying to do. Might be better on tap...decent

Bottle. Clear light brown, malty and very light pine hop aroma, very juicy and clean on the palate with lingering malty notes. Taste is mostly bitter but with some pine in there and an ash finish. Weird, good, very enjoyable.

A mostly pleasing aroma with just a whiff of ethanol. Not as off putting as it sounds. The taste is dry but juicy at the same time. A quick drop in bitterness and a somewhat tingly sensation at the end

I don’t know enough about American Strong as a category, but it seems that this might be classified differently. Pours red gold, nice pillowy white head. Moderate aromas - floral, yeast, hops. Taste is very well balanced and subtle - a gentle bitter, with a neutral malt framework. Good substance, a little chewy, I fond it to be very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Not the best red ale. Cloudy copper color, good lacing, rocky head. Bitter at the beginning, alcoholic/hoppy in the middle. Almost no linger/aftertaste. Bad for the style but not undrinkable.
