nice amber pour with medium to thick head, very malty and the hops are perfectly balanced. The most full flavored of the Sam Adams ’normal’ beers that I have ever tasted. Too bad we don’t get much of their non-mainstream stuff out here.

About as red as you can get, with a big head. I could drink this all night and not get tired of it. Good social beer and quite tasty, but in the end not that special.

Bottle: Nice light red color came with a thick off white head that quickly disappeared. Light malt scent to it. Seems like an average red with nothing that stands out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foamy off-white head and nice bright-red amber color. Fruity malt aroma, very soft toasty edge, and some mild earthy hops. Medium sweet crystal malt flavor and light bitterness. Super clean and dialed-in to style. Not bad as a simple session ale, which is just what it should be.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Got this in a 12bottle sampler pack. Pours a beautiful deep red with a creamy white head. Aroma is malty and robust with hints of toast. Great flavor and a wonderful crisp and full finish. Great, great beer and the best red ive ever tasted. Highly recomended.
