2.95/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - From a 22oz bomber it pours one finger of white head that doesn't stick around long and leaves a little bit of sticky lacing. It doesn't really look red, more of a pale, cloudy, light copper color.

S - A small malt presence and some hops in the aroma, but overall it's pretty underwhelming.

M - A light-medium bodied beer that has a relatively smooth, creamy feel with moderate carbonation.

T - The crystal malt hits first followed by some hops to balance out the flavor. I'm having trouble coming up with a good description, it's just a very average flavor.

Certainly not terrible, but nothing special here. I didn't have a problem drinking it, but it's lacking character. It ends up just being an average brew.

The beer pours a nice dark amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is average at best. It has a pale and crystal malt aroma, but with an overpowering musty aroma that ruins everything. The taste is horrible. It has an intensely musty flavor with a very dry finish. There are crystal malts hidden in there somewhere as well. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a low/medium bodied beer with good carbonation. This is the worst red ale I've ever tasted. This was very disappointing.
