On tap at tomato bistro. Pours a light red color, nothing special at all. Little white lacing and head. Body is light but perfect for the style. Taste is kinda watery. Some tropical fruit hops and mango. Eh, ok but not much else. Many better reds out there.

Pours a clear amber with a thin lacing head. The aroma is typical red with a malt base and some wood. The flavor has the typical red notes with that wood and a nice balance, The finish is dry and lasting. Warming to the throat.

vyvvy (4500) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap at the brewpub - Pours reddish copper with an off-white head. It has a medium / light body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with mild toast, light sweetness and dark crackers. The finish has earthy / woody hops, caramel, spice and a touch of horehound candy. Pretty good for the style.

ARH (728) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Tasted in a samer glass filled from a tap. Caramel, bread crust, and light spice notes come through on the nose. The clear, dark, rich amber beer is topped by dense and soapy, off white head. A thick ring and a thin, small film island is retained as an average lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter blend. The sticky, medium-full body has a soft, yet buzzy, carbonation. Bready caramel notes appear in the smooth finish and bread crust lingers in the aftertaste.
