This is a very tasty red from SB Brewing Co in Santa Barbara.
A - Deep ruby red body with a decent little head.
S - Scent is of light malts.
T - Smooth malty flavor. Not too sweet though. Just a nice mild taste.
M - For the style it's light to medium
D - Very drinkable, mainly cuz of smoothness.

Draft at brewery, 02/18/08.
Medium burnished copper color. Thin foam skin, no active carbonation.
No aroma from taster glass.
A little malt flavor up front, cardboard aftertaste.
Mouthfeel identical to water.
None of the characteristics I associate with a good beer, save that hint of malt at the beginning. Yuck.

On-tap at SBBC
The beer is amber in color with a dense off-white head. Smells...off. I get some olive brine, a light nuttiness, and a decent malt sweetness. Toffee, bread, and a light toasted quality. Some floral hops, but sort of watery overall. The flavor is bland and watery. Toasted bread, toffee, and light caramel. A mild olive oil note, too. Very mild hop flavor and minimal bitterness.

Served on-draught into a pilsner glass at Santa Barbara brewing. Paired with pizza. Reviewed from notes.
A: No real head at all. It's possible it disappeared from the pour to my table. Colour is a dark caramel-ruby.
Sm: Caramel, toasted malt, and maybe light citrus ester hops. a mild strength aroma.
T: Caramel, a toasted malt backbone, and that's about it. Very simple and strangely built for a red ale. Not at all balanced. Pretty meh. There's no clear focus or direction. I support experimentation, but this is a failure.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Too silky smooth; a red ale ought to be more coarse - especially when there's toasted malt involved.
Dr: Drinkable but of low quality. Simple and uninspired; perhaps their worst offering.

My dad and I had this one as a sampler and that was enough for us. Poured a red color iof course but resembled the color of tomato juice bt watered down, no head, not impressed. Nose was weak;malt, hops and thats it. Taste had a slight zing to it, like metal like other have ointed out. Weak malts and hops leave this beer very boring and not very drnkable.

Santa Barbara was my home for 8 years. SB Brew Co. was verrryyy good to me. The Red was a favorite of mine for quite some time and in fact was the first Beer on tap that I bought on my 21st. B-Day. Red is good taste and great as a socializing beer. (doesen't give you death breath)

my first trip to the brewery.
Appearance- nice vivid red/auburn, clear(no haze)
Aroma- light sweet malt notes, bit of roasted nut/ seed. some spice characters I can't detect.
Taste- sweet, mildly hopped, plain finish. Like a Killian's red.
a Decent Red.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear red with a small head. Biscuit, metallic, and caramel aroma with some light hops in the background. Toasty flavor with some caramel malts, but a little light and boring on the hop side. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty inoffensive, but uneventful as well.
