[Tap - Old Market Pub]
A deep dark reddish color with a slight head. This had a very nice balance and the flavors where very good. A tad of extra hops and the rich flavor was great. I liked this beer I can and would drink another.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap@the brewery. Slightly hazy, dark reddish brown body with a dense beige head. Nice, mild aroma of sweet malt, caramel and hops. Flavor is refreshing caramel malt, some chocolate and balanced bitter. Rich and hoppy body, a bit more like a hoppy brown ale than red.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Old Market. This brew ended up being the best of the brews on the taster tray. Pours a darker red with a medium off-white head. Lots of fruity hops in the aroma, fairly aromatic. Taste starts with a light fruitiness to the very lightly sweet malts. This brew finishes with a nicely balanced floral/citrus hop finish. Not overly bitter, but a good dose of hops makes this a good refreshing brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Milder than I would have preferred, but nicely done in the same sense, quite well balanced. Malty, and full of rich fruitiness, perhaps some spearmint, that I am sure has something to do with a hop characteristic that I just cannot put my finger on. Definitely quenches the thirst.
