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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wood and root beer aromas follow directly into the taste (especially the root beer). Clear medium amber with an off-white head. A light dark caramel sweetness balances the dry woody character well along with a little creaminess in the body which is a bit thin overall. The root beer component (which is not bad) shows up again at the end with some lasting sweetness. A decent red ale, this would be a good pizza beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Samples provided for review. Malty smell when open, with a little Scotch malt in the bargain. Light brown body puts out a nice fluffy head. Crystal and caramel malts can easily be picked up. ops have a bit of grassiness at the IBU delivery system, but there’s also some pine resin in the edge. I catch a little peat from the malts, some dried fig and just a note of milk chocolate. Finishes with a lingering bit of bitterness.

Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of vegetables (yellow squash, etc.).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
A syrupy, raw, vegetal, clumsy affair. Sad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Caramel and toffee malts with a lot of toast and bread on the nose. Creamy sweetness, minimal hop profile, just a bit of a floral note. The flavor is a touch watery, but decently sweet and malty. Some toffee, caramel, and toasted bread. A hint of metal on the finish. A bit of grass, too. Surprisingly decent.
