look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- reddish brown color with light coming through

S- slight hop smell with some citrus not very overpowering

T- not bad for a red, very carbonated and that gives it a bite towards the end, citrus and hops in the background

M- lots of carbonation and bubbling on my tounge

O- ok but nothing special a passable red that is drinkable

Serving type: bottle

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

A: Wow, this thing is highly carbonated. I poured it into an english style pint glass and it almost over flowed with half the bottle. A four + finger head was formed with medium sized bubbles that reminded me of cokecola. No lacing and it took a few minutes before i could pour the rest of the bottle in the glass. The liquid is a brown leather/mahogany color with a moderate haze.

S: The nose has a moderate amount of spicy, english style hop aromas (floral, earthy). A bit of a fruity ester character, maybe from the yeast. Also an underlying minerally character that i cant quite pin point.

T: Malt forward with a complex array of flavors. I'm getting honey, cocoa, bread crust, toast and a sweet bread flavor. There is some of the mineral flavors coming through also (maybe the water?) and the fruity yeast esters. There is a low hop bitterness and flavor but it keeps the malt sweetness low and its a nice woody, earthy flavor that blends nicely.

M: Highly carbonated, the bubbles tickle my lip as i sip on it. Mild body. if the carbonation was lower this would be very session-able.

O: The malt profile this beer has is very interesting, and combined with the earthy woody hop flavor underneath i'm a fan. However.. the carbonation from this bottle was out of control and made it more filling then it needed to be.
