on tap at rock bottom in KOP

Pours a deep reddish color with some golden hues. Thinner beige head slowly fades out, leaving some wispy film behind with patches of lacing on the glass.

Bready and malty in the nose with a slight dash of hops. Caramel with bread crust and some light sweetness.

Very soft hop presence up front, which is quickly swept away by a wave of biscuit and bread crust. The malt is fairly heavy with sweeter tones driven by caramel with a slight dash of honey. A few hints of dark fruit attempt to peek through before the finish. A little sweet and chewy at the end.

Medium body, decent carbonation, a bit chewy and bubbly on the tongue. This is okay, but I'm left searching for something that might allow it to stand out from the crowd.

This arrived wearing a nice red with slight glow to it, with only a ring of head. Lace was minimal but present.

The smell had good flavor but was slightly muted, caramel malts dominating. The taste was simple but pleasing, again dominated by caramel malts. Hops barely touch the tastebuds in its finish. Simple but effective and definitely drinkable.
