3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Pour is a cloudy dark orange with a large white head. Aroma is sweet amber malts and a wee bit of hops. Flavor is again a nice thick malt with a little hoppy backbone. Decent beer. Nothing great but nothing bad either. A heavy malt forward beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
