This is an average red. Easy to drink, flavorful and smooth, but nothing to really set it apart from any other red.

Draft at Vedge. Pours a deep brown with some off-white head and lace. Nose of dark roasted malts, bread, tobacco, dark fruits. The flavor is dominated by robust roasted malts, fairly dry, no hop flavor, some bread and yeast. It was a decent beer for what it is but not really my style.

Decent red ale that is very drinkable. Little roast flavor and a light hop palate. Not too much to it.

Pours a slightly hazy amber brown shade with thin white head, not lasting, small lace. Aromas of malt, cherries, light berry, biscuit, and yeast. Taste is very muddled and somewhat bland, get some berries, malt but not much else. A little hoppy. Mouth was on the weaker side. Not a fan really.
