2.98/5 rDev -22.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Serving type: bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance – Poured in a brilliant copper color with a quarter-inch head, dropping quickly to lacing. Bubbles disappeared in about a minute, leaving very low carbonation.
Smell – Caramel and toasty malt.
Taste/mouthfeel – The mineral water used in the brewing process is quite dominant – think Perrier. The carbonation is also similar to Perrier (small strings of tiny bubbles make their way to the top quickly, eventually leaving the beer a bit flat after only a few minutes). It has a raw, oily hop flavor. The finish was quite dry leaving almost a cotton-mouth feel.
Overall – Perrier morphed into an ale. This one was a gold medal winner (according to the label), but the sour, mineral water taste really got in the way for me.

This is one of my favorite beers. This brew is incredibly refreshing. Though it isnt the easiest to pour from the tap, the appearance is amazing. It is a nice dark amber color. The head floats atop- an aesthetically pleasing addition. When it hits my mouth I think caramel. The toasted carmel hops are prime. It is a first class amber ale that all should experience.

Appearance: Clear deep copper in color, with a moderate, dense, with medium-sized, dense off-white head, modest carbonation, and thick, glass-coating lace.
Aroma: Light caramel vies with apple rind, and a moderate, slightly earthy hop presence.
Taste: Opens with prominent toasted and caramel malts. As the taste progresses, spicy hops begin to assert themselves, and a faint note of alcohol appears as well. Finishes with a lingering, spicy hop note and caramel and toasted hops as a backdrop.
Mouth feel: Smooth and soft, fairly full, with only slight carbonation noted.
Drinkability/notes: Solid and very well-crafted, a pleasing and very drinkable red ale.
