3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop notes of roasted, caramel, and pine, light soap for the yeast, with hints of dark dried fruit in the background. Head is small to average size, frothy, off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light amber/orange. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively to fizzy carbonation. A nice surprise from a beer called Red. Lots of Pale Ale aromas, and a flavor that’s just a little short on the sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was faint nut and caramel. The flavor was bitter and tangy with notes of caramel, sour nut, and lightly rough fruity and floral hops. The finish was medium length bitter and rough hops. Medium body. Eh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2011 Bottle. Smells like your average English ale with a splash of hops. Some sweet notes but most of the nose is malt and alcohol. This is on the dry side but pretty enjoyable. A bit of alcohol on the finish. B plus.

On the twelfth day of Christmas 2011. Pours clear reddish rown with a white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, caramel and some florals. Taste is very light bitters with sweet finish. Tastes very unfinished. Light and airy. Overall this seems very incomplete, much more malty then other APAs.
