3.23/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Reddish-copper, with a hint of haze. Head was 1-finger of off-white foam that faded quickly, leaving just a hint of lacing.
S: Bready malt, with just a hint of citrus in the background. No complicated aromas here.
T: Sweetness surprisingly strong up front, yielding quickly to a tart, citrus flavor. Hops makes a strong and lasting appearance in the finish, with a bitterness like grapefruit rind. There's a faint fatty acid taste in the finish as well, detracting from the experience somewhat.
M: Nicely carbonated, with a slightly dry finish.
O: Just so-so. Not what I was expecting from a red ale, especially the bitterness (I can't believe it's only 35 IBUs, as the bottle lists). I'll pass in the future.
