ChadPolenz (1784) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 15A Irish Red Ale

AROMA: Mild/neutral nose. Slight amber/red maltiness. Light red fruit notes too. 6/12

APPEARANCE: Fairly dark magenta/burgundy hue. Tan foam almost completely dissipates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Subtle caramel malt flavor and sweetness; slight red fruit flavor (cherry, plum). Mild earthy hop character, but low perceived bitterness. No roasty or chocolate flavors. Nothing off-putting but nothing to really enjoy here. 10/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Smooth and quaffable, with a dry aftertaste. Not refreshing. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Not a bad beer, just a boring one. Not sure why they would include this style in their lineup. 5/10

SanfordBrewer (1537) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Translucent ruby with a lasting beige head. Silky medium-full body with moderately high carbonation.

Aroma: rich caramel and roast, sweet bready malt.

Taste: caramel, bready malt, chocolate, tobacco hops, and a touch of roast in the finish.

Great food beer. A bit too rich to be true to style, but a very good beer. Great layered complexity, and each element is deptly balanced.
