Appearance - A dark murky brown color. I guess I was expecting the hues to be a little more red based on the name.
Smell - The aroma is a little less than exciting. Dried grass or hay are present; I do not really detect the hops in the aroma.
Taste - In the initial taste, one detects sweet grass, something musty, and lemony hops. The citrus hits the drier side of the tongue. I am a little surprise by the absence of a malt backbone in this one. The modest hops linger in the aftertaste for a surprising time period based on the un-thickness of the beer.
Mouthfeel - I expect a little more malt in a red ale. Perhaps this is the reason Red Wheelbarrow seems relatively thin.
Overall - I generally like red ales, but I think this one is pretty average. The lack of a malt in the taste bothers me.
