Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a reddish dark amber color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal wisps of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Glassy aroma with some herbal hops mixed in. Crystal malt smell.

T- Flavor's a bit better than the aroma leads on with some hop spiciness and a decent malt backbone. Fits the profile of a red ale but there's not much character behind it. Easy to drink.

M- Slightly oily with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Has a decent drinkability to it even if it is lacking in flavor. Could be a lot worse (see their Organic IPA).

Not as bad as I thought it would be. Color is amberish, and comes out a little cloudy. However, taste wise, it's decent. Kind of steely, but definitely has the kick of a red ale. A little spicy. It's nothing to scream about, and tastes a little standard, but still not that bad.
