Pours a deep, brownish amber with an off-white, creamy head. The head is somewhat small, but retains well. Aroma is of malt and some flowery hops but a bit faint. Taste starts with hops and finishes with a slightly sweet malt character. The hops aren’t too bitter but the taste lingers for a while. Good drinkability.

Deep amber. Head vanished quickly,into average lace. Aroma is of malts and caramel, but a bit subdued. .Mouthfeel is medium. Not much carbonation. Taste is smooth,and sweet at the start with a bit of hoppiness to end it. The malts and carmels are very evident,but not overwhelming. Nice balance. Would like it more if had more body and a bigger hoppy bite.

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!

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.
