Sweet malt, syrupy, pleasant flavor, with just faint hops. Nice but immemorable.

Bottle. Clear, reddish color. Aroma is the pleasant floral type hoppy smell. Taste is pretty good too. Love the mild floral hops that are a tad bitter but not the smack you in face kind.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from wegmans in northern va. Pours and smells like a good red ale, but has a fairly strong bitter aftertaste. Its decent, but the aftertaste kinda did it in for me. Not the best red I’ve had, not the worst.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This one was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to red color with a small one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing.
The smell had a decent rolling caramel maltiness invading my nose that leveled off a bit as it warmed.
The taste was mainly malty sweet with a light bitter kick close to the end.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriate and didn’t have anything that told me this was bad.
Overall, not a bad American Amber/Red. I’d probably get it again the next time I’m in Virginia.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle (no date but purchased 2 days ago) served in a snifter.
An unusual amount of ressure released by uncapping. Pours dark and murky red-brown in color, hazy and with an over-sized, creamy tan head that has excellent retention and leaves the glass well coated with lacing.
Flavor: better than the nose and drinkable, but still poor.
Feel: soft and smooth with high carbonation.
O: possible infected, making 2 out of 3 (all different beers) for me from this brewer. Should re-visit but the lack of quality control discourages that.
