3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep red colour not much head or lacing. Dried fruit aroma biscuity. Sweet malty taste a touch of cocoa. Overall pretty basic red ale. Not bad but not interesting either. Acceptable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent copper brown. Many visible bubbles Small head. Pleasant aroma consisting of malt, caramel, and dried, candied fruit (particularly cherry). Thin and relatively smooth. Caramel, dried cherry, malt, and a wee bit of tart, with a mildly hoppy and dry finish. Also not overly sweet as the flavours may insinuate, due to the dry balance. Quite good for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear red-tinted medium amber with a short off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, bready yeast, maybe slight nuttiness. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, low sustained carbonation, lingering sticky toffee and bitter finish. (4/5)
Pretty straightforward red - not a lot to say about it. Had it, move on. (12/20)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark red with a tan head that didn’t stick around too long. Some aromas of bread, syrup, and caramel. Has a light-medium body with quite a bit of carbonation. Very malt forward with a slight roasted flavors as well. Medium bitterness. This isn’t a terrible beer, but definitely not on my watchlist.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent reddish brown, but head is fizzy and fading. Points off. Aroma is malty, biscuit and caramel a little. Taste is better than the aroma; malty again but a little stronger with a longish toffee finish. Feel is actually good, not thin. Overall, not a bad beer if you’re somewhere for one and this is on tap. But I’d move on after one.

A fine red, nothing memorable however. Pours a nice clear amber. Smells a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is basic, a bit of fruit, with a balanced finish. Had in the bottle at the brewery.

poured a bright amber-red 2 inch tan head lasts a bit then goes to a glass lacing ring.
Sweet toasty caramel grains up front is then balanced with a rush of cedar and citrus tastes from the hopping...finishes wet and slightly dry with a great biscuit after taste

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rouge claire avec une petite mousse beige. L’arôme faible du malt. Le goût est très maigre aussi. Un peu de malt, très peu amertume.
