3.5/5 rDev -2%
Ordered this as part of a sampler. It was their seasonal ale at the time.
A - Very little head on this which to me signaled a higher ABV since most of these are loaded with carbonation. Sadly its under 6% but it looks like a red ale very bright red brown clear in color.
S - It has a toasted malt smell, slightly sour with some caramel but mostly grainy.
T - It tasted kind of unbalanced very bitter pine grainy character making the body more boozy than it should have been. Not very sweet just loaded with toasted malt.
M - Daymn was this 8%? When I checked the menu it said it was 5.6% and I thought no way. Hard to drink despite the medium body.
Overall I was not very impressed and kind of saddened since pint profits go to local firemen and I only got a sample. It Ok overall.

I went to the Rock Bottom in Cincinnati, though because it's a chain I am going to assume the beers carry over the same. I ordered a flight of six of their standard beers and as I tried each one I found that each was spot on to the style. The remarkable thing is how unremarkable the beers are. Don't get me wrong, they are well worth the try and certainly above average but they are produced for a mass market. So as lazy as it may be I am going to simply say that this beer was a text book example of the style without breaking out and setting itself above.
