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.

I was bored by this one...looks nice and red with a little head but there’s just not much flavor to it. Flat malt, a tiny, tiny bit of hops, that’s it. Body has little character and it almost tastes spoiled the flavor is so flat. Bleh

This is a very good red ale with a very smooth finish and a slight hop accent.

Not a big fan of red ales but I know I’ve had better than this. Tastes like a weak tea drink, not great.
