3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one is from Shmaltz and I think it must have been put out in October for Halloween as it was in the clearance section.
When you pour it it’s quite red, even with my colorblindness it seems off. The head is all pink. Most definitely a Halloween beer! It’s quite sweet, I’d rank it just a tad below the sweetness of a Innis and Gunn. Some honey and malt. Other than the obviously fake color I kind of like the flavor. I might pick up some next season and try some more from Schmaltz.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours "blood red" like they say it does, and has a minimal pink head that dissipates. Has aromas of licorice, artificial sweetener, bread, and a bit of caramel. Has a slight hop bite, and is in between a light and medium sweetness. This beer is really light and bland. Drinkalbe for sure, but this beer is way overpriced for what it is. A big dissapointment from an excellent brewery.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Don’t expect an Octoberfest/marzen here. 12 oz bottle. Pours bright red- artificial look w/pink head that mostly dissipates. Slight bubbles stay. Hard to pinpoint flavor, weak twizzler a little tart, hint of beet; is not very good. Mostly bitter impression. 3.5 BD

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle-kind of reminds me of the line from Airplane! when the controller talks about the pilot landing the plane, "Geez, this moron is all over the place." Fizzy red pour with a pink head, some kind of fruity aroma, my brain says cherry, but that’s because of the color. The taste is a bad marzen of malts, becoming overwhelmed by hops. Metallic finish. Good thing it was only 99 cents. Produce place.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear raspberry red with small redish pink head that seems to last. Aromas of light malt and light earthy hops. Flavours are mild bitterness, fruity, grapefruit, minimal sweetness.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Definitely an odd beer. Pours a hazy raspberry red with a rocky pink head that leaves a bunch of sticky lace. Faint nose but I could get some herbal hoppiness and some blood-red orange fruitiness. Flavor was earthy and semi-bland with a semi-fruity slick blood orange fruitiness, mild bitterness, and a bit of toast. Not a fan.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from JB long ago. I had forgotten this in the beer cellar behind other beers. Pours hazy red with pink fizzy head. Aroma of earthy hop and malt. Flavor is malty, earthy, lightly sweet, earthy astringent bitter in finish. Light-medium body with high carbonation. Might have been old bottle, I did not enjoy this.
