COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maybe you’re not in the mood for a raspberry flavored, low carb, ice, dry maltsicle, and you certainly aren’t in the mood for a Rotgutzen. You are, however, always in the mood for a Pinstripe. Brewed with caramel malts and Liberty hops, the Pinstripe has a slight fruity finish and dance.

If only the beer was as busy as the box it came in. I found the red to be the same as the brown with less aroma, flavor, and mouth feel. I hate to say, but I think this is the miller lite of amber ales. Very boring, uneventfull, watery, little to no malt character, no hop character, not even a perceptive bitterness, is this really beer?

On tap poured a clear deep golden hue w/ a small quickly diminishing head to a ring and some broken lacing. Mild bready aroma. Initial flavor is mild sweet w/ a light bitter aroma of moderate duration. Tastes are rye and sugar. Medium bodied and watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very mildly flavored, only really tastes like barley. Has no notes. Drinkable, though. No off flavors. Just not really great.

Caramel, floral, citrus flavors, not bad but if this is a red I’m a stepchild. My local growler station must have given me the wrong tap. Poured golden like a pilsner. What? Confused, disappointed.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours clear red with a white head that dissipates quite quickly. Nose is malty sweetness. Taste is malty sweetness with a slight buttering hop at the end. Not bad but nothing to search for. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing too memorable here. Mild sweetness and malt throughout. Not terribly complex.

12oz bottle thanks to peterhazelton. Waiting to go to dinner for my anniversary. Reservations at 7:00 and it's now 6:55, and a 45 min drive to the restaurant! WTF!!! Damn women! Pours dark golden color with a quickly dissipating off white head. Grainy aroma of light citrus, and grass. Taste is also grainy, slightly yeasty, rotted citrus, grass, and toasted malt.
