Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is some caramel malt but also a weird vinegar sourness. Flavor is better with some chocolate malts and a bit of cherry let on the tounge.

Pours a clear amber with two fingers of off white head. Aroma is slightly spicy and a little caramel. Taste follows. Not a bad beer.

Bottle to pint. Dark red pour with very little head. Watery nose with a bit of roasted malt. Thin body, some smoke, soapy mouthfeel, bright, lager-like finish. Average at best.

12oz bottle. Very underwhelming. Pretty but not nearly as delicious. I’d give it a skip.

muddy brownish copper with hardly any head or lacing. Caramel, graham cracker and a subtle sense of bananas come through on the nose, but none of it particularly pleasant. Taste features sweet caramel malt and butter. light body, medium carbonation, and a lingering sweetness. This wasn’t too good, but extra points for the cause.

Amber is not one of my favorite styles and this one comes up short on convincing me too. Pours a dark orange with minimal aroma, the taste is thin with only a bit of malt flavor to work with. I would pick the blonde over this red.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, deep red appearance with a light brown head. A touch fruity, burnt caramel malty, somewhat herbal/piney hoppy, slightly spicy, albeit uninspired aroma. Metallic, burnt malty, bitter herbal hoppy, tangy flavor. Too much metal.
