Part of a beer sampler on Valentines Day. Perhaps a little better than some of the mass produced reds, but it tasted a bit watered down and weak. We thought this beer was average for the style, but not outstanding by any means.

Donít prejudge this brewery for their horrendous, generic looking labels, they actually make some very nice beer. This one is labeled a Red. It reminds me of Red Banshee by H.C. Berger Brew. Co. and Jamaican Red , yet not as much depth, by Mad River. A very tasty and authentic Red.
