On tap at Sweet Afton. Pours a clear reddish gold. Aroma has moderate grainy notes with caramel and some boozy warmth. Flavor is a bit of diacetyl, buttery coating on pine hops and mild caramel malt. Prickly but mild hops presence in the finish.

Draft. Cloudy red brown with a head that left lots of lace. A decent dry red ale but not spectacular. Very nice though.

Druaght from Oak & Iron in greenpoint bky. Reddish pour, not a ton of head, light hops and malts. It’s as you’d expect a red session to be.

Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, caramel, and a hint of hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, caramel, finish is medium sweet and dry.

Nothing special about the look or aroma. Buttery tast that isn’t pleasant. Light body but results in cotton mouth. Not complex. Yet another example of why Sixpoint is over hyped to the point people think it is good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from my local Whole Foods. Pours a murky brown with a thin white head. Aroma of grassy hops, garlicky hops, pot, and caramel malt. Flavor is more malty than the aroma, but solid-malty with grainy malts, caramel malts, and even some nutty malt. Solid stuff, very malty but a good hop presence as well, so overall it is on the hoppier side for an amber. Underrated on this site I think.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish amber with a nice sized head. The aroma is malty with some bread and a touch of pine. The flavor is malty sweet with the hops coming in behind. Pretty well balanced and a nice lasting after taste.
