3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is big on roasted coffee, chocolate, and some citrus and grains. It pours a dark and clear, copper red / brown color retaining a medium-thick white ring. There’s a moderate amount of micro bubble lacing down the glass. The taste is a light bitter with a medium-high malty sweet. An above average carbonation goes down with a slick texture. The medium, malty body finishes with malty caramel, light grass, and some citrus and stone fruit (peaches?). The aftertaste is very light, and mostly clean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Darker red pour with no head. Low carbonation levels. Sticky caramel and biscuit notes in the nose. Toasted bread, caramel, hints of molasses and hints of hops. Overall bitterness is very low. Sticky mouthfeel, with a nice full body. Although I’m not a huge fan of the style, this beer is well made and pretty tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Beer House in Yorktown Center, Lombard, IL., and shaker served showing a clear, walnut color, with a nice layer of fairly persistent, creamy, soft white head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was roasty, with a touch of smoke, nuttiness, and smooth malt. Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation, low hop bitterness, and a mild, smokey/ tanniny astringency, the flavor seemed to wash out a bit, and lose some of it’s character, but was still very quaffable. Styled more as a Brown Ale, imo.

A decent red ale that rates more like a porter. Pours dark red to almost brown. Strong alcohol contact and has a nice aroma.
