3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, dark reddish brown, full dense tan head that fades, leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is moderate, soft hoppiness with evergreen character. Toasty malt flavor, mild bitter hop finish leaves a slight linger of pine trees. Simple and easy to drink. Medium body, low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amber pour with a thin, quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is caramel, toasted malts, and a light nuttiness. Faint trace of citrus hops. Pleasant, just not particularly strong. Taste is more hop forward than I imagined. Toasty malts are still evident, but are overpowered by a stale hop taste. Finish is dry and biscuity, like a weird pils. Mouthfeel is pretty good, a little heavier than light bodied. Drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12. oz bottle. Appearance deep and clear red with a generous off white head. Aroma caramel and some earthy hop aroma. Taste- Malty with note of caramel a tea -like tanic finish with a firm bitterness. Overall drinkable but has a distinct tea-like flavor that throws it off. I would like to try it again from a different batch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not sure what the red marker on the label is. Brown pour with a decent head. Pretty yeasty aroma with a floral, malty undertone. Lightly tangy amber with a fair amount of sweet malt. It is not heavy on the hops, and has a mild aftertaste. Not bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is very bitter for a redale. Bitter at the end. If you have it on tap it can be placed at back of tongue and very nice. In bottle hops bitterness hits pretty hard.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL. Poured a clear reddish amber with a nice, medium, beige, rocky head that has decent retention and leaves very nice lace. Nose is very nice citrus florals, nectarines, air freshener, loads of caramel. Taste is malt-forward, nice citric character to balance with a slightly suddy, soapy palate. Very nice nutty bitterness coming into play. Slight diacetyl that is appropriate for the style. Really good session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Amber with a dirty white head, two fingers thick but quickly settles. Medium to thick lacing. Caramel comes on strong, hint of a hop smell, with some earthy notes and a slight chocolate finish. Smooth caramel with surprisingly bitter hops finish. Dark roasted malts are subtle underneath the caramel giving it hints of possibly coffee flavor. Light body with low to medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Beer pours a dark, rich red color with a very small head. Aroma is malty, with notes of yeast. Flavor is malty, with touches of bread and yeast. Another flavor I canít quite place. Okay, but certainly not the best Iíve had from them.
