2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
More amber than red ("blood red"...really?). Smooth sweet caramel malts. Modest bitterness with hints of rye. Nothing lingering about the finish. Not bad but nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish brown color. Head dissipates quickly with almost no lacing. What flavor there is is mostly malt, very little hop balance to the sweetish biscuity taste. Thin, dry mouthfeel, almost need a glass of water with it. Mediocre.
