An average beer better than your macros and some crafts but not in the upper echelon. However still a fine drink and would have again. More importantly is the locale where you can get it which is a small microbrewery/restaurant in Charleston which is dynamite. A fabulous setting combined with great decor and an interesting old building in the heart of Charleston. The food is excellent and the service is great but get there early or make reservations on the weekend as it does get crowded on the peak hours.

Served as part of a flight

Pours a clear dark amber with a thin ring. Mild aromas of piney hops and sweet amber malt. Taste is fairly malt-heavy, lots of amber and caramel, with some light citrus hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and a touch sticky, with a medium body and decent carbonation. Overall a decent Amber, but not something I'd get again.

A - poured with a small, off white head on a clear, amber body. It settles quickly and leaves no lace.

S - caramel and brown sugar.

T - sweet malt and caramel up front. Some brown sugar in the middle, and more caramel and a hint of red apple along with moderate bitterness in the finish.

M - medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - sickly sweet and one dimensional with caramel flavor and only an excessive bitterness to balance. No hop flavor, no malt depth, not worth drinking.

A: On-tap at Southend Brewery. Had a reddish color and a clear texture. There was a half inch of long-lasting, foamy head. Average lacing.

S: Not much of smell, with a little bit of hops and malt.

T: Tasted of hops and malt up front, with an unpleasant tobacco flavor in the finish. This latter element doesn't work well with the taste, which is somewhat thin to begin with.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a grainy, harsh finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Red ales aren't exactly the most complex style, but this one does not come close to the best examples if the style.

Had at the southend brewery in charleston, sc. A very nice deep amber with red hues. Reddish hues with a half finger head rapidly dissipating. Lots if lacing. Typical sweet malt aroma. The taste is unique for a red. Sweet caramel malt but smokey notes are present throughout. A nice hop finish for a red. Overall both drinkable and unique. One of the better beers available from this establishment.
