4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub a while back.
Red with off-white head.
Big on the caramel malts, malt character definitely the feature here, although there is great balance with the hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Funky Buddha. It pours cloudy deep red, with a large beige head. The nose is dark fruit, leather and chocolate. The taste is caramel, red fruit, wood, leather, milk chocolate and spice, with some dryness in the finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewpub. Murky red brown. Thin cap. Aroma has fruity malt, the palate is slick and thin. The flavors are also very fruity (orchard fruit), and has an old world feel to it. The flattish palate makes it seem like a cask pour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had hoped for more excitement in this beer, but it did not yield anything particularly mind blowing. It was a decent beer for the most part, just not a memorable beer. It was a little nutty in flavor, but pretty subtle for the most part. There was a bit of carmel in this, but not enough to really jump out at you.

Nice dark red appearance, a bit too sweet for my taste.... but enjoyable and drinkable. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Red Dawn is a decent Red Ale. It pours a nice deep red color with a hefty head. The initial aroma is that it will be very malty with heavy roasted nuts. The actual taste doesn’t deliver quite the nuttiness that seems to be in the aroma. It has a slight watery taste and leaves you wanting something more. Overall though it was good.
