3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice- deep red color and strong hoppy aroma. A bit of caramel in the flavor but not too sweet. Full palate and good maltiness backed up with a good hoppy, bitter finish. Nice.
On tap at the brewery 1-18-06. Deep reddish brown with a small tan head. Malty aroma- slightly nutty, slightly metallic... Flavor is of a red ale, mixed a bit with a brown, and having a hint of alcohol there. Slightly sweet, but it doesn’t linger. Decent.
