3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours amber red with an off white head. Malty toffee sweetness, light fruity hoppy notes, and hints of grain. Well balanced and high on drinkability. Pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Unlike most red ales, this one actually is a little red, orangish red if that. So many so called red beers are not red at all but amber or brown. Slight flowery aroma. Slight bitterness on the palate but not obnoxious to say the least. For the most part well behaved. Yes, a tad of those ale attributes are present but overall a pretty good beer experience. Nicely done for a red ale. Many manners and much refined.
