1.68/5 rDev -53.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5
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.
Serving type: bottle

2.98/5 rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
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.
Serving type: can
