3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy red-brown, no head. Aroma is pleasant - hops and sweet citrus fruits. Body is relatively light, crisp and clean. Palate is grapefruit that fades into a slight sweetness and the finish is slightly hoppy. Overall quite delicious and enjoyable, very sessionable, but could have packed a bit more of a punch.

On tap at Tim’s House and then again at Tim’s House, then Tim’s house again and then, yes, Tim got this beer one last time. I’m not a huge Red fan, but this beer is the best example of the style I’ve found... Killians need not apply.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Reddish amber in color, translucent, large frothy white head, very sticky lacing.
Pale musty slightly earthy malt aroma.   A bit mustier and dank like maltiness on the tongue.   Seems a
little thing, not much body.   Hops are soft.   This is a malt based beer, but its not that malty
either... Hmmm...   Flavor from start to finish, but body and mouthfeel lack depth.   Not watery, just,
well... bordering.   Finishes with a touch of pale fruit skin, otherwise pale earthy/grainy/barnish
maltiness.   Clean beer, just not big enough.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Deep amber body. Slightly cloudy. Large fluffy off-white head. Good retention and tons of lacing.
S: Grapefruit, resinous pine, and sweet caramel malts.
T: Very much like the nose. Highly hopped up with grapefruit, orange, and pine. Plenty of malt shines through giving a nice balance from the caramel and lightly bready backbone.
M: Smooth, medium bodied. Resinous finish with moderate bitterness.
O: A very nice hoppy red. Its not Nugget Nectar, but you shouldn’t hold that against it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out a nice looking clear darker amber with a decent sized off white cap that left some spots. Has a pleasant aroma of honey and sweetness, pine, caramel, oranges and something earthy. MMMM good bitterness that seems to flow in waves, unsweetened grapefruit and pine bitterness and bite, darker caramel than usual, orange, earth. Tasty beer. Smooth carbonation, wonderful bitterness that just seems to swirl around. I dig this beer on most levels but get bored on a couple of others.
