Okay, gonna try my hand at this one.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was basically red and it had a one and a half finger white foamy head that died within about a minute. There was some light lacing.
The smell was roasty and malty with a fairly light dark fruitiness I think.
The taste was basically roasty and somewhat sweet malty based.
The mouthfeel, I guess was smooth and gently rolling somewhat softly over my tongue.
Overall, for the most part, not a bad red ale I'm just unsure if I would seek it out again.

4.04/5 rDev +10.1%
Appearance: deep blood red color. two fingers of a tan head that fades slowly and leaves behind a lacing. opaque and dark color
Smell: sweet caramel tending towards dark fruits. and a strong toasty malt base. slight herbal hop note
Taste: opens with slight dark fruits and a big burst of caramel sweetness. transitions to a strong and grainy, toasty malt character, ends on a slightly bitter herbal hop note
Mouthfeel: good medium body and no stickiness not cloying sweetness or lingering bitterness.
Overall: one of the better non-imperial reds out there. great balance on the sweetness and lots of good and complex flavors for the style

3.3/5 rDev -10.1%
Appearance is ruddy light brown with a tan creamy head leaving scattered, foamy lace.
Smell is sweet caramel, herbal hops, damp grass.
Taste is also rather sweet, a little grainy, slight acridness, almost porter light, with nuanced chocolate. Nice robust amber if you not looking for much hop wise, as the bitterness is moderate, and the grassy flavor modest.
Mouthfeel is slippery, on the light side.
Drinkability is ok. It's light, and cleanly strong. There is some subtle complexity, but it's dominated by sugar and grass, which I don't love.
