3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A: reddish-amber color; clear with a moderate, creamy head of limited duration. Little lacing.
S: nice malty aroma with hints of bread and toffee.
T: light, grassy hops, a trace of citrus, and a light malt backbone. Hoppy for style, as is most obvious in the lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and dank herbal hops. Taste follows aroma, medium-heavy bitter. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Very good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. A little harsh for my taste. Pale, but not as bitter as expected. Did not like this variety of hops. Not for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great ruby red/brown appearance. Sweet (but not too sweet) malty aroma... maybe with a hint of pungent funk. A light IPA taste with a slight pungent flavor and fairly drinkable. I like it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Revel Red pours a clear rusty orange color with a light tan head that lasts a good while. The aroma is caramel and citrus. The flavor is caramel up front with a citrus finish. Overall this beer is decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.

The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish.
