2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear copper orange with some light peach highlights and an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, reducing to a medium film and large collar and having fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light bread malt, grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was a lot like the aroma with a light bitter malty flavor with just a hint of caramel early on, progressing with a mild hoppiness and a light citrus presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a light citrus peel bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery, dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall I found this brew to be a mildly hoppy and slightly fruity Red Ale with a very good drinkability...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
