2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
An inconsistent beer, at first I was prepared to label it among the worst beers I have ever had - positively toxic, but sometimes its not too bad, so I decided to split the difference.

Flat aroma with basically zero head after ten seconds. I’ve yet to find a red ale that pleases my palate.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Odd orange color. I say odd, both because I’ve never seen a beer this color before, and because this is supposed to be a red. Nice head, but it faded quickly. Malty taste, and the alcohol is very evident. Dry to the point I feel I need another beer just to re-wet my mouth.

Pale orange and red; Head was nice looking; Malt accents in the nose. Very mild. Hint at some burnt malt aceents.

Being a big fan of red ales, I was a little dissapointed in ole Pete. Very carbonated and doesn’t take many chances.

Very carbonated - the bubbles never stop! malty, amber. like killian’s but without the nasty aftertaste i always get with killians. overall - passable.

I really enjoyed this one. A nice sweet malty flavor and very smooth finish. I have been very impressed with the Petes Wicked line of beers.

Got this as part of a sampler pack. I am glad I didn’t get 6ers of all of these because for the most part they have been barely above average (I do like the original). This was no exception. Copper colored (not very red at all actually) with a thin head. Mild malty nose. Somewhat bland flavor but easy to drink and mildly sweet throughout. So-so.

A couple of ’CO2’s’ are buried in the text jumbled logo while the commercial description boasts of ’heightened effervescence’. This may be an overduplicated style but some brewers make it well (N.Coast, Roague, Full Sail). This however is just another one of those run of the mill micros aimed at newbies. A little sugary, almost candy-like sweetness is pretty much as complex as things get. Heightened effervescence? Thankfully not.
