Poured from a bottle into a glass. It has a nice head that maintains a thin layer even halfway through the beer.

Tastes horrible. I detect notes of copper and and a subtle chalky aftertaste. It has a very watery mouthfeel.

I bought this beer because they are a local brewery from down the road. I like some of their other stuff, but this is just awful.

A: Pours a dark red brown with a tan two finger head. Leaves a lot of lacing as you drink it.

S: Malty aroma

T: This just didn't work for me. I do like this style but I think this one doesn't come close to the style. It does promise a hoppy taste and it delivers on that. But, it just didn't taste right to me. The hops and the malt just seemed to clash.

M: Decent medium to full mouthfeel.

O: I've had three of these on different days to see if my impression changed but this is one I won't be buying again. I had high hopes for it but it just doesn't work for me.
