West Virginia

3.21/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Light, clear brown with reddish hue against light.
Smell: Faint malt and moderate skunky cheap beer smell.
Taste: Faint biscuit and malt. Maybe a touch of honey.

This is really rather lackluster. To me, this is the beer to get when there are no other options because Bud and Miller stuff at the gas station. The smell is so faint, and the taste is just barely there, but enough to tell it's a Red Ale (barely). I confess I'm not big on this style. I probably wouldn't ever go out of my way to get this. However, yes, it is drinkable.

Serving type: can
