Aroma was mildly fruity and bready. Fairly sweet. Pretty standard for the style really.
In my pint glass from the brewery, it pours a dark, blood red...with a thin but fairly tight head.
This is a very mild red ale, which I'm guessing is what they were going for by reading the website. They wanted a sessionable beer, which is certainly what this is. Mildly sweet in the body....but restrained and unremarkable. Kind of has an apple character. Hops are completely absent in this one....and when I say that, I mean that I do percept any at all. There's a slight note of chocolate malt near the finish....some breadiness appears on the finish as well, which is altogether pretty thin and watery.
This is fine, but wasn't worth the price I paid for the growler. I get trying to make an approachable, sessionable ale, but it doesn't have to be absent of flavor.
Serving type: growler
