Had this beer on nitro (hence the higher marks) at Guu's, downtown Steven's Point. Would like to try it side by side with normal Rusty Red to compare.

From notes on 4/29/14

I don’t know why, I just really don’t like this beer. I've had it from a bottle, but this last Saturday my dad got a Nitro pour of it at the brewery. Wow, that made it much worse. The name seemed fitting as all I could taste was rust. He actually liked it. Me, I enjoy most everything from O’so, but this one beer.

NOT.A.FAN ...
I like some of OSO beers, but this misses the mark. It's too malty and really difficult to drink out of a bottle...if you have a 6 pack drink out of a glass for sure! not very tasty compared to FIXED GEAR. I like the color/smell, but the taste IS NOT FOR ME. Good luck on your next Red Adventure.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My fourth beer from O'so Brewing. Expectations are pretty good, since I remember liking O'so Dank Imperial Red quite a bit.

Poured into a Lagunitas mason jar.

A - Pours a dark muddy brown-hued "rusty" red colored body. About a finger or so of fluffy khaki head that falls to a ring quickly. Lots of active carbonation is noticeable. Looks pretty good.

S - The smell is typical of the style - dry earthy red malts, twiggyness, faded herbal hop presence, some caramel / toffee, and some light cola.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready caramel malt, earthy red / amber malt, twiggy, herbal hoppiness, and some cola sort of flavors.

M - The feel is smooth, creamy, crisp, and drinkable. Very light bitterness on the palate. Very nice finish.

Overall, it is an about average red ale from O'so, but it definitely hits all the right marks. Worthy of a try that's for sure, but it probably isn't a beer I would seek out again often.

O'so Brewing Rusty Red ---3.5/5

Pours slightly hazed dark amber to reddish with an off-white head that settles to a lasting thin cover. Ample lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel with an unfortunate touch of sour apple.

The taste is malty caramel with apple juice and a vague bready touch. The sour apple throws off the flavor. Alcohol is noticeable in a somewhat distracting way, as it doesn't blend in so well. It has a sweet and sour finish.

It is too sour for the style and the alcohol level is slightly too noticeable for the general character. It does have a smooth malty backbone, but the two detractors, especially the sour apple take too much away from this brew.
