3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Rock Bottom / Cincinnati OH --- Clear medium red amber with a thick rim head, streaks of lace. Solid aroma of malt and hops. Taste opens with strong caramel malt infused with a little sweet apple. It grows noticeably through the palate, adding effervescence. Hops show up late, but only enough to bring things to a nice balance. A very drinkable beer, especially over a long evening.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light caramel. Light fruits. Light body. Light bitterness that lingers. A fitting beverage for the Pruneyard Food Desert (Campbell, CA).

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Rock Bottom Denver. Amber and clear appearance with a small diminishing white head. Mild aroma of toasted malts, citrus fruit, earthy hops and bread. Bland flavor adds light caramel and a touch of pepper/spice. Light thin body. No thanks.

Essentially, this tastes like a watered down amber ale. Little hop character and/or malt sweetness. Not worth having.

A copper red ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet nutty caramel malt with light grassy hops. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light cloying sweetness, light bodied, boring. On tap at RB Chicago.

Draft at Rock Bottom with Mitch before the movie The Counselor. Pretty much what you’d expect from a Pittsburgh brewpub. Low on body and flavor and probably overpriced.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. The aroma is mild and malty. The favor is a little bitter, but overall mild. This beer is not a stand out red ale, but drinkable.

Pours reddish amber, no head, with aroma of mild malt, brown sugar, and a hint of caramel. Taste is very light, malty, some caramel and mildly bitter. Easy to drink, very light, but not much flavor.
