Bottle. Quite alright. The taste is very sweet and at the same time rather strong. Doesn’t look too good though.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of caramel and alcohol, slight bread and sweet tea notes. Not really imperial red ale .. cause it’s not red. Golden with white head that persists for some time. Closer to imperial pale lager, has that assertive Heineken like crap hops, almost like old hops. Sweetness at the end. Body and bitterness helps to cover mediocre malts. Average at best.

Sweet and boozy! Hops are missing. $3.99/11.2 ounces at World Market makes it expensive IMO.
