3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Binnys sampler pack...pours foggy red / amber...thin head. Quite a hoppy nose for a red...nose is more IPAish...which I like. Some malt to take edge off...but not too much. Tasty...will do more

im not a hophead, so i personally didnt care for this much. that being said, for a hoppy red ale, this is quite good. if you want a pale/ipa with more malt and caramel notes, go for this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a cloudy medium amber with a frothy tan head. Light malt-fruit aromas. Body is medium. Flavor is well-balanced sweet amber malts and some good spicy hopness. Finish is clean with a lingering hoppy-malt profile. A very decent amber.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle-- boy oh boy, this Lakefront variety pack keeps getting better and better! Kind of a burnt red color with medium lacing. The aroma is surprising hoppy with some malt. Taste is hoppy too with malt rounding off the edges. I was expecting more red ale than IPA, but I’m very pleased with the beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is grapefruit hops forward. Appearance is redish brown, very little carbonation and very hazy. Taste is hops forward. Grapefruit aroma hopping and a firm bitterness drive this beer. There is plenty of malt present as well, but still a hoppy beer first. Palate is medium full. Bitterness lingers. Overall a good beer. The hops in this are nice. Nothing unique, but very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber with a full beige head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and some citrus hops. Taste leans more towards the citrus direction, specifically lemon and grapefruit. Also contains pine and caramel. Citrusy aftertaste lingers. Medium body, and much more smooth instead of carbonated. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle. Pours a hazy red colour with a large white head. Aroma of orange and toffee. It tastes like a lot of other beers out there but that’s not a bad thing by any means. Sweet caramel malts with a good level of citrus bitterness.
