2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rockbottom brewery in Halifax. After having the rock bottom classic ale I assumed the red would be a similar counterpart. The red was full of roasted malt and bold aftertaste. I found the red a tad spicy, not much different then the red at Rouges Roost down the street.

Draft pour at Denver location. Pours amber with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Smells nutty and roasty. Tastes boldly roasted with a malty finish. I'm not a fan of reds usually but this isn't bad. The palate is pretty simple though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured at Rockbottom in Ballston, VA. Reddish amber color with a nice head. Lacing coats nicely. This beer tastes a bit malty and the finish is somewhat chalky. Not a bad brew but does not stand out.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour. A lightly malty toasted caramel malt impression initially. A bit of light sweetness although the beer does lack complexity. It isnít a bad red ale, but it could be better.
