3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crimson in color, just like it says. Citrus flavor with hops and malt. Head doesn’t hold long. Sour aftertaste. Tastes sweet on the palate but just the opposite on the aftertaste. Not something I would likely drink again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, bright ruby amber; good rim head around a light cover, dots of lace. Hard-edged malt moves smoothly through the palate, adding dark fruit to a sour and bitter finish. Good for sipping, good with Havarti and baguette.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The beer pours - as advertised - absolutely crimson. The taste of this beer is primarily malty, with some biscuty notes. There is also a solid hop overtone, that shows up at the beginning of each sip. On the whole, it is one of the most drinkable beers I’ve had in years. It isn’t so heavy that it makes you pace yourself, but yet isn’t thin enough for you to forget about it between sips. The Caramel and Munich malts are just right, and the little notes of hops that come through on the aroma are just right to keep it interesting from the first pour to the very last.

Pours a hazy amber with ruby hues...a super thin tan head. Aroma has some tea notes and light maltiness...yam n.tes. Flavor follows suit...balanced...some dry leaves and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is more earthy/bitter than malty/leafy.
