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

a real generic American red ale, on the sweet side. this has a rich malty nose of dry red malts and sweet amber ones, the sugar being dominant, and a light toast on everything. tastes like it could have some oatmeal, fuller bodied and smooth in texture. copper and dusty flavors challenge the sweetness unsuccessfully, while the vibrant carbonation percolates on the tongue. the bright feel of this beer is a contrast to its robust sweetness, sort of an odd match, but with a little fuller fermentation, I think this beer would be quite good. for now, its an American red ive had before, and one that does very little for me as it stands. I like the kiss of honey flavor, and the touch of smoke, but the sweetness is just insurmountable for me. overall I really like the cause, but im only so so on the beer.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear, but dark red colored body.
The aroma is a nice wet grain smell.
The taste is big on the malt side, though not too sweet. There's some caramel and mild lemon bitterness. Nicely balanced.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
It's a easy drinking brew.

Poured brownish red with no head. Thin white ring and skiff on surface. Dark in center.
Aroma: Caramel malt. Diacetyl.
Taste: Plum raisin and molasses with mossy hops.
Mouthfeel: Moderate, malty but watery.
Overall: Once I got the diacetyl, it was hard to notice other dimensions of character. Seems like it could be a drinkable beer.

Sampled on 11/22/13 from a 12 ounce bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and pored into a pilsner glass.

Pours a nice dark red amber in color with a very small off white head. Lots of bubbles from the high carbonation. Some spotty lacing was seen but not a lot. The aroma was of some malts with citrus and floral. The taste was close to the aroma but had a bitter aftertaste that lingered around for a bit. A tad on the 'watery' side. It's really not one of the better red ales I have had.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: The beer is clear but dark reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of toasted malts and malt extracts with slight hints of associated sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, a little thin and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: While this beer is easy to drink, the smell and taste aren't very interesting and seem like they could both use complexity and hops.
