Draught. Pours red with a small head. The aroma is malty with hints of biscuits, crackers, caramel, yeah this is definitely malt heavy. The flavor is only mildly bitter with little hop essence imparted. Biscuits, toffee, and the faintest of coffee is suggested. Indian Head Red is a straight-forward malty red ale.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom Asheville on 9/21/2007. Pours a reddish amber with no head and a little lace. Nose is slightly hoppy, good malt balance--pleasent enough. This is very traditional amber with nicely balanced malts and hops. No flaws noted and alcohol well hidden. I tend to like Catawba Valleys hoppier beers better.
