2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: Pours an amber color with a light head. The nose is lightly hoppy with a touch of caramel and some light diacetyl and thin malty notes. Thin flavor with a touch of hops in the backend with a little more diacetyl. A little thin for a red, but it’s not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Reddish amber beer with a strong foamy lightish brown head. The aroma is dulled berry fruit with a tart finish, and the flavour is roasted, and fruity with a bitter/burn’t finish. Overall quite a drinkable and refreshing fruity drink with a bitter finish.

Wasn’t quite what I expected. Not a hoppy red and not a particularly malty version either. Fairly light and fizzy with some slight acidic notes to it. Might require another review later from another batch. Did not feel this one.

Tin. Poured very red with medium off white head. Much lacing. Hayey aroma, with a tiny bit of pine. Rusky flavour, with a full mouthfeel. Medium finish, the hop shows up, and the finish lingers.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can.Pours hazy chestnut with thin off-white head. Aroma is woody, with fruity background - light citrus and berry. Full textured mouthfeel. Flavor is toasty caramel with a light bitterness. Finish is mild citrus fruitiness and light resiny bitterness. An extremely mild sour lactic note underscores all of this and gives it just a hint of complexity that beats some others in the category.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz tallboy courtesy of ericandersnavy. Pours a light amber body topped with ivory head. Aromas of balanced caramel sweetness and light piney/citrus hops. Flavor is similar and very malty with just a touch of grassy/floral hops in the end. Not a real standout, but, I could drink a bunch of these floating down the river.... I found it ironic that GF Hop Head Red is in the same style category. Cause I would drink the hell outta that if it came in a tallboy!!!
