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.
