2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Great color. The lacing is heavy for such a light head. This beer just tastes a bit yeasty to me. It reminds me a lot of Fat Tire and for the life of me I can't understand how that became one if the most popular craft brews in the country. I mean...I'll drink it if I have to...if PBR and Bud are my only other options....but I really don't wanna. Yea...this red ale makes me feel like that. And it even has 50ibus. Where'd they put em? I've tasted ales with less hops and more flavor many times. I'm confused

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer is transparent with a copper body. An inch or so of creamy, off-white head sits on top. The aroma brings sweet breads, fruit, malt. Hop character emerges more in the flavor than the aroma, offering a light bitterness mid to late palate. Subtle pine and resin amid a fruity, slightly sweet malt bill. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

Can from Flagstaff. Nice amber color with a lasting white head. Aroma reminds me of malted milk with some green hops. Flavor is mild with only a slight hop bite at the finish. Okay.

Sampled at GABF. Pours an orange with some cloudy, white head. Sweet nose, orange, yeast, root veg. Flavor is malty, orange, root veg. Very simple. Clean finish. OK, but not a game changer.
