22 oz bottle poured, from France44. Labeled as Rainmaker India Red Ale. Very well made amber here. A memorable flavor for sure. Sweet caramel and wood aroma to it. Rocky tan foam head. A good balance of rich malt, and bittering hops. Another wood reminder in there, but mild. Cool finish. Flavorful. Excellent red here.

Tap at New Bohemia in the classic bumped pint glass this place is known for. Really wish they would splurge for the actual pint glasses. Nice red appearance with about a half finger of head. Aroma has some tropical notes with a pleasant brightness. Taste has mostly bitter elements with that lingering resin aftertaste. Surprisingly very little on the malt front. Basically malts used to impact the appearance. It was initially aggressive but eases off the throttle as the consumption continues. Im not really digging this one but you could do worse.
