Reddish color with an off white head. Hops are mildly noticeable in the pour but the aroma doesn’t linger. Taste is slightly sweet and malty with a slight bitterness in the finish. Mouth feel is medium with light carbonation, while drinkability is good because of the smoothness of the finish and the nice malty sweetness.

Medium dark red color, though not much head and it did not last long. Decent aroma, inviting, mix of sweetish malts and the bitterness of the hops. Taste follows the aroma well, slight sweetness of the malts at first, with reasonable bitter aftertaste from the hops, making it well balanced

The beer pours amber in color with a finger of off-white/khaki colored head. Mild citrus hops on the nose along with some grass notes as well. Toffee sweetness and bread. Unfortunately, the nose is rather bland. There’s a bit of sweetness of caramel and toffee and some mild citrus and grass hop flavors. A touch of bitterness, but a definite malt extract flavor in there as well. Medium in body and carbonation. Underwhelming.

I typically don’t drink Red, but tried it at the LA beer festival and really liked it. Since my palate was shot at the festival, I thought I give it a try at a local bar that had it on tap.The beer begins a nice deep red color. the head imposing and frothy in its texture, leaving a thick sheet of lace to seal off the glass. You are greeted by malt, and some light to middling floral tones from the hops, fresh and quite pleasing to the senses. Begins sweet, the top is middling in feel, the finish bitingly hoppy, and the aftertaste dry. I guess wasn’t too drunk after all. This is a good beer. Will try their IPA next.

Pours red like the name. Getting a trio of flavors here. First is a sweetness. Then some cereal tastes. Finally some hop notes. Balanced but a little watery.

Apparently a new microbrewery in LA. On tap at Blue Palms in Hollywood. Appearance: Light hues of red and brown, giving rise to a smooth tan head. Smell: A noseful of fresh malted grains. Taste: Sharp hop flavours ride on a light champagne style carbonation, followed by a nice mouth feel and smooth malt body. An interesting buttery driness coats the mouth. Nice head retention and balance of malt to counter balance the hops. A very drinkable Red which seems to be a rarity these days!

On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a hazy red-amber body with a white head. Aroma is dusty with caramel, light hop resins and husky grain. Flavors are of slightly soggy malt, wet dog and grainy. Not as hoppy as the aroma. Lively carbonation. That said it is still decent compared to the amazing large amount of boring amber ales out there.
