2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle (from the MI mix 12 pack at Meijer- Big Rapids, MI), served in a shaker- poured a transparent copper brown color, light carbonation, thin white ring about the vessel with several frog eyes. Aroma of caramel that needed another minute on the stove, and a light malt smell. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt had a good amount of sweetness added to it- but it wasn’t awash in it, middle has some refined sweetness- almost like brown sugar (but not quite, you know what I mean?), finish has a slight pop of acidity from hops. Decent, but nothing to take your clothes off about.

Aroma: caramel and malt. Appearance: clear, burnt orange coloring. Taste: more caramel and malt. Palate: light bodied, tons o’ carbonation. Overall: not the best amber. Probably will not get again.

Clear, amber-brown pour with a small, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by caramel malt and bread. It has a light body with slightly sticky texture, average carbonation, and a sweet taste.

bottle. Most of this ended up on my countertop when the bottle exploded upon opening. I did take a sip of what was left in the bottle, and it was hard to taste much through the ridiculous over-carbonation. Your basic amber with caramel malt and no discernable hops.

Draft at Harrison road house. Decent appearance. Couldn’t get much out of the flavor. It tried to taste a little fruity but ended up falling short

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Deep amber color. An off-white head. Decent lacing.
Smell: Not much to speak of here. It just smells like a beer. Piss poor description, but it does. Definitely dominated by malts, as you’d expect from an amber.
Taste/feel: Definitely the best part of Red Glare -- it reminds me of a Hefeweizen. That’s what it really reminds me of, and I love that. It has a lot of banana in the flavor, and then there’s some tasty malt in the finish. Very, very respectable beer. The feel is a bit above average, and it works well with this beer. The banana sweetness with the fizz makes this seem a lot like a Hefeweizen at first, but the finish is more reminiscent of an amber.
I like this one quite a bit. I’d gladly have it again .... especially if I happen to get it on tap at Liberty Street.
