3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Red with a tan head. Aroma is very mild but well balanced. Flavor is also on the mild side but well balanced with light sweetness from the malt and some earthy hops. Very smooth mouthfeel, likely due to the crystal malt. Light/medium bodied. Not an over the top red, but quite sessionable.

Very mild aromas, couldn’t pick them out after some hoppier beers. Light bodied and had a very lively mouthfeel that I enjoyed. The flavor was mostly bitter, not their most balanced beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/14/12
Aroma: The nose is both sugary and hoppy, with some malty notes too
Appearance: This one pours into the glass a clear amber color with a light head atop it
Flavor: It has a light-medium sweetness, and a light bitterness, with sugary malts and light hops
Palate: The body is medium-full, with a clean and drinkable feel, and it ends a touch dry
This one was a solid red, that is easiest to describe as not too shabby overall. Really though, this is another very solid offering from this brand new brewpub. There is some very good potential here.
