Ok. Had a can from total wine. Maybe I got an old can but I wasn't impressed. It's not a very drinkable amber. Pours clear and,well, Amber. Smells like beer and tastes ok. Hops seem bitter but not too flavorful. Mouthfeel is ok. Overall, not one of my favorite.

Appearance - This is a nice, brown beer with hints of orange coloring and a huge, easy, brownish-white head.
Smell - The grain in the nose is faint and a bit stale with a light floral hopping.
Taste - The malt is bigger at the taste but it is still somewhat stale. Sugars are light and mostly brown.
Mouthfeel - This is smooth with some light but clumsy bitterness.
Drinkability - This was an awkward effort at the style and barely drinkable.

Attractive red-amber color with plenty of foam in the glass. Light malty flavor with a fair amount of roasted malt. Bitter twang of hops makes up the rest of the flavor. Quite earthy with a mineral taste. A bitterness of nut shells and burned biscuits takes over for the finish. A woody sensation and somewhat acidic. The malty sweetness emerges shyly for a little while.
What seems like off flavors at first sip are apparently the odd fruity hop mixed with a grainy malt flavor. It reminds me of some mysterious casserole slightly scorched in the overn. While I don't care for this much, it is actually quite drinkable once you get used to the taste. From the 12 oz can bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Chandler.

Thanks to my friend amanda for sending this one to me from AZ.
App- A medium colored orange with some dark orange highlights and more of a wood stain sheen behind. I would even say that a little bit of fading yellow towards the bottom. Two finger slight off white head. A nice little sheen of cling.
Smell- A little bit of sweet apple skins with a lot of malt behind it and a slight bitter note from some hops. This was along the lines of a Fat Tire but this had less punch and even had some deeper citrus and I would say some leather and grass notes behind it.
Taste- The taste follows the nose with more much more malts and some deep citrus and a slight hop balance. A touch dry flavored with a grassy. Im coming to find out that Red's just aren't my things. Not bad per se. Just dont like that off malt base.
Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonation. A bit thick and slick. Retains some of the leather/grass after flavor.
Drink- I used to drink Fat Tire by the 12 rack. Amazing how tastes change and you get away from old styles and decide thats just not what I like anymore. Glad I got the state tick. Probably will shy away from Reds/Ambers for a while.
