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!

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber color with a light tan head. The nose brings some lightly-toasted malt and biscuits as well as light pine and citrus hops. A bit of an earthy character there as well. Taste is light malt with a bit of hops. Slightly bitter and dry feel with a good body. Drinks pretty well and is another well-made beer from DuClaw.
Serving type: on-tap

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Duclaw, Bowie on 14 July 2006. Quite handsome - clear, bright, mid coppery-red in colour. Hint of smoky malt in the aroma. Some sweetish caramel in the flavour. Pretty unremarkable on the palate until a metallic tang kicks in at the finish. Not really my thing.
