12oz can a few weeks old - received as an extra in a trade

A- pours a murky, cloudy reddish mud color - not the best start, but a good head with heavy lacing
S- Citrus hops with a hint of stone fruit sweetness
T- Smooth malt with a kick of hops. Not sure but there is a slightly unusual almost metallic edge to the aftertaste bitterness. Not my favorite
M - decent body, but not noteworthy.

Overall not entirely sold on this. It is good, and I am glad i tried it, but a harshness to the hop profile wasn't my favorite.

First had: bottle, throw in on a trade from...er, I don't remember

A pretty typical red ale all over. Reddish amber pour, with a foamy cap of off-white bubbles. Malty aroma with some piney hops coming through. Taste of caramel malt and toffee, piney hops, citrus pith, somewhat metallic in the finish. Pretty average even for the style, but still a good brew. Probably overrated just because it's CC. Medium body, and decently drinkable, aside from that off-flavor, which could just be a freshness issue (didn't check for a bottle date).
