This poured a darker amber to red color with a beige head. Aroma was of metal, light toasted malt and some biscut. Flavor was much the same, dry and somewhat bland but nothing offensive.

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.

Yawn! Pours amber with a big white head that rapidly dissipates. Not a lot on the nose. The taste has a bit of biscuit to it. Meh!
