3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of loose light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is toasted malt, caramel, mild floral and citrus. (6/10) Taste is medium sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry and mild bitter finish. (3/5)
SighÖ I have regret. Not that this is a bad beer - itís not. But itís just what it says on the bottle: an original red. And thatís about all it is. Nothing interesting or memorable here. (12/20)

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a bomber bought in the Seattle area into a tumbler on 12.21.13.
A: See through amber.
S: Sweet smelling. Citrus, flower.
T: Follows nose. Citrus, flower, slight bitterness at first.
O: This was decent at first, but then an acrid bitterness grew from the back end to overwhelm anything else. Elysian seems to like to over hop their beers. I love IIPAs with crazy high IBUs, but an overly hopped amber or stout (Dragonstooth)? No thanks.
This would have been a drain pour, but a friend chugged it down.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Dig Beer Bar, Beer Cats Osaka Party event. Not much in the nose, some toasty maltiness maybe. Good roast malt initial, moderate bittering, with some bite to it. Not a lot of "red" character. Okay, but not much going on here.

On tap at Dig Bar. It pours a reddish amber with a malt forward caramel/toffee aroma. Medium bodied with a zesty mouthfeel. The taste is a satisfying malt caramel with a green bitter hop bite.
