Two dollar draft special @ Rock Bottom KOP. Red bodied, strong white head, light bodied with a hoppy aftertaste. Middle of the road, yet quaffa me beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber with a medium white head and good lacing. Caramelly, bready, grassy, earthy, biscuity, and earthy aroma. Taste is husky, caramel, bready, soapy, lightly grassy, and malty with a crisp finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

b3shine (5195) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Draft to taster at Rock Bottom Cincinnati. Looks solid; a transparent copper with foamy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt and light hops with a touch of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

crossovert (7006) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Just and absolutely mundane red ale. Not super malty or hoppy, perfect for the people who want bland beer that is colored differently.
