look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Rich, deep mahogany with a thin off-white head that stuck around and left spotty lace.

S-Luscious and aromatic but at the same time subtle and reserved. This is about as balanced as possible. Neither the sweet caramel malt nor the spicy citrus hops take control.

T-Much like the aroma with an amazing balance of malt versus hops. Juicy hops and chewy malt....Hey, you stuck yours hops in my malt---Hey, you stuck your malt in my hops!

M-Medium bodied and quite rich. Lingering hop bite sneaks in on the back side.

D-Not my usual style...I prefer more hops but...I can't knock the balance and ease of drinking with this one. A near perfect compromise between malt and hops.

On tap at 6 & Save in New Kensington, PA.

Pours into a tulip a deep but translucent ruby, light red highlights, half-finger of head, with a few tiny, slow bubbles.

Smell is of mild floral hops, as it warms a little citrus.

Taste is florally hoppy, but cold & stony with little to balance. Kinda like there's just not much there, not much to report on. The aftertaste is fresh, like after you just ate a grape, or a salad for that matter. The mouthfeel is similar: clean & crisp, kind of refreshing, with a subtle bitter coating.

Drinkability's not bad -- it'd maybe be a good session beer for playing cards or something, an easy drinker. Just not sure I get the point, not a whole lot of flavor. Reminds me a lot of Levitation the first time I had it: a little bitterness & not much else.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A balanced malty beer,carmel to bulk up mouthfeel. easy on the carbonation. Subtle head. I believe an attempt at a Vienna red style.Readish colour, a bit of lace. Rounds out the lineup for the average patron.Some toasted malt would be interesting, and the version tried with wild yeast really did it (see review).
