Had on-tap at Universal Joint Asheville. Served in a Foothills pint glass.

A- Pours a dark reddish amber with a 1/4 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam.

S- Mild hop aroma plus some semisweet malt but not much else.

T- The first thing I notice is how watery it tastes but I've come to expect this from Catawba. The flavor profile is that of a hoppy red but the hop bitterness and flavors are muted. Also not much of a malt backbone. In a word, bland.

M- Slightly sharp from the hops and, as stated in the flavor category, watery. Medium-low carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I knew going into this I probably wouldn't be thrilled with it since I find all of Catawba's beers to be average at best. But it was on special for $3.50 and I wanted something hoppy. If I had it to do all over again, I would've shelled out the extra money for a Rampant, but tickers gotta tick.

part of a flight at The Casual Pint in Knoxville, TN

looks decent, nice amber colored body. Slightly off white head which fades rather quickly to a faint covering. not much lacing to speak of.

Did get some hops on the nose, but only faintly.

Taste is very light. hops do come through, but muted. Feel and mouth are also a little on the light side.

Not an an unpleasant brew at all, just doesn't seem to have a whole lot going for it.
