Misfit Red was served on-tap at the Arundel Mills location. The ale was served chilled in a yellow Pint Club tumbler.

Appearance: The ale has a light amber color, clear with no sediment. The ale is moderately carbonated but betrays no hint of a head.

Smell: The ale has a light hop aroma that is balanced out by a biscuity malt aroma. The aroma is average.

Taste: The ale has an inoffensive taste. The hops do not stand out, making the ale come across as somewhat bland. The malt character works in much the same manner: it does not offend but it does not stand out either.

Mouthfeel: The ale is well-balanced and smooth. It is not for a hophead, but it may be an excellent gateway for those getting into the craft brewing lifestyle.

Drinkability: Maybe a little too strong to be a session ale, this beer is good for pounding a few. If you are looking for hops though, look to Venom.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had on tap at the DuClaw location at BWI (Which is a fantastic surprise!)

A: Deep deep red, almost on the verge of brown in the middle, with little to no head to speak of.

S: Sweet, dark, caramel malt nose. No hop aroma at all. Sweetness comes across a little overpowering.

T: Sweet grains right up front: smooth caramel as well as dark roasty flavors to balance out the sweetness just a little. Sweet on the verge of cloying the whole way through. The dark malt somehow balances it just enough.

M: Medium to light mouthfeel. Goes down smooth with enough body to let you know it's there.

O: Not a bad beer but I'm not sure I could session it, which is something nice about red ales. It's just a bit too sweet to have more than one or two in a siting.

Serving type: on-tap
