3.3/5 rDev -10.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle purchased at BevMo as part of a sixer for about $7.
Fairly light in color with a fizzy and fast-fading head. Mediocre lacing.
Smell is faint for an amber, with a slight alcohol twang balanced by a mild sweetness.
Tastes like it smells. Noticeable alcohol without much in the way of hops. Sweet malt, but not particularly rich or deep - a little thin.
Overall just an average amber. Definitely drinkable but there are much better options out there. Try Red Tail, Boont, or Red Nectar instead. Or if you really want to be blown away try Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale!

A: served on tap into a stange, dark orange amber colored with a short off white head that lingers leaving some lacing, clear
S: caramel malt, light hops, pine, grapefruit, slightly sweet
T: great malt profile, caramel sweetness, British hop flavors, slightly sulfury hop quality
M: light to medium body with higher carbonation
O: reviewed from notes taken on 3/6/14, beer focused more on malt flavors than depth of hop flavors, still a very good beer

3.71/5 rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from the 12 oz., bottle into an Alchemist shaker pint
a: Clear copper with a finger thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.
s: Mild citrus or other fruit.
t: Slightly fruity malt with some hop balance. Dry finish.
m: Medium with good body.
o: A good English Pale. I would have rather the malt was more caramellow and prominent, so as such this would not be a top choice for me. But it is a fine representation of the style.
