Appearance- pours a sparkling orangish red with two fingers of fine white almost pinkish foam. it lingers a bit. Some Lacing
Aroma- carmel and vanilla , some earth/dust a little buttery with a floral finish.
Taste- roasty with some carmel brown sugar in the front. Maybe a bit nutty. I get some clove not much chocolate like they claim but this is a red that takes it malt seriously, and I like that about it. The hops are piney and balance pretty well at the end.
Mouthfeel-medium bodied decent carbonation and good mouthfeel. the butteryness in the smell and taste translate to a slick finish but its not off putting.
Overall- A good red in fact one of the better ones that I have tasted. I think if you want a hop forward red go with the red seal and if you want a maltier red go Mermaid !
