look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

I found this single 12oz brown bottle at the Trader Joe's in Glen Ellyn, IL for just $1.00. No freshness date.

The beer poured a slightly hazed copper color with a nice 2½-finger fluffy egg shell colored head that lasted awhile. Not a lot of lacing, but there was some.

The smell had a nice malt and caramel aroma to it with some subtle hop presence underneath.

Mostly malt and caramel flavor, but the hops don't stay hidden in the taste. They provide a mild bitterness and some citrus flavor to the beer. Well balanced.

Creamy mouthfeel with medium body. My only com[plaint is that I found the beer to be severely undercarbonated.

Easy to drink. A cut above your average red. I just wish it had more spritz.

3.71/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Bottled 2/1/14, so 3 months and change.

Pint looks slightly hazy amber color with a small creamy off white head. good carbonation and lacing.

Aroma is faintly of cut grass malt with an even fainter suggestion of hops

Taste shows a pretty decent balance, though leaning more toward the malt side. A pleasant biting bitterness around the tongue

Mouth is medium and a bit foamy.

Overall a decent enough beer, actually got more enjoyable toward the end. Nothing to really brag about, label's prettty cool though.
