500ml Bomber. Pours a super dyed-out red color...disturbingly artificial. If it’s not a cherry lambic you shouldn’t even think about making a beer this color. Someone call the Reinheinngesptot enforcers. I think the food dye actually interferes in a subtle way, giving the beer a chalky mouthfeel. Malty and mellow in some ways, making it at least drinkable. Hop balance muffled under the artificial taste. Big disappointment from Shmaltz.

Pours cherry red with pink head. WTF?? Malty aroma with some floral hops. Flavors of bitterness (not in a good hoppy way) and cough medicine. Medium body with average carbonation. I had a hard time drinking this one.

First of all, making your beer artificially red is fucking stupid. Second of all, I ain’t buying that "666" ABV shit at all. These two things seriously damage the overall impression. The aroma is good. Fairly hoppy in the pine way. The flavor is a mildly pleasant clash of piney hops and oversweet malts. Still I can’t get over how stupid the whole thing is.

Pour is a bright red with a large pink head. Huh? Aroma is malty and not much else. Flavor is dry malts with a touch of hops and finishes with som breadyness. Nothing great and I hate gimmicks with the red food coloring to look like blood.

I had this last october, and it was a bad experiment. The red, the taste, it was just all wrong. Nice creativity but...

on tap at the Spuyten Duyvil. BRIGHT pinkish red/magenta colored body, like nothing else. Bright pink creamy head. BRIGHT! aroma is hoppy, sweaty, vegetal. flavor is hoppy, bitter leafy, & a bit medicinal, but also lots of caramel malt. finish gets more hoppy bitter. more on the hoppy side, but decent enough balance of caramel malt.

I had this on draft. What an insane color. The beer and the head were crazy red with a hint of blood orange. I had such a hard time getting past the color that I didn’t have to much to say abou the beer. Not much of an Ofest for me. No spices. Some malts and sweet flavor with some pungent bitterness.

good flavor as an amber astringent pale ale. bright red color with no other apparent alteration. bitter tang and hoppy citrus mid palate. sudsy foamy and not an octoberfest by a long shot....but hey not a bad beer!

Draft at Hop Devil. WTF orange. Seriously.

No, seriously. Why does this have a bright orange head. Weak, light cranberry aroma. Rice. Goes down easy, light corn/rice taste, fusels, tar. Not as drinkable as a real octoberfest. And if this weren’t bright bullshit orange I would’ve given it a 3.1.

Cask @ Brazen Head: OK whats up with the red dye job. I don’t drink green beer either. I really couldn’t smell much of anything in there. Yeah some malt but meh. I did pick up some kool-aid powder, punch flavor, but I don’t know if it was my imagination due to the look of it. Holy crap as I am typing this the Kool-aid pitcher guy was on Family Guy. What are the odds. Also what are the odds that such a crappy beer gets my longest rating.
