4.33/5  rDev +7.2%

I was pleasantly surprised when I finally got a chance to drink this beer. The first time around, I was told it was all out at a local bar, so I was afraid I won't be able to try it.

The appearance was great, and the aroma was coming alive. It was served in a pint glass, which we all know is not always the best type to get a waft of aroma. It smelled fresh, and hops was showing off somewhat.

The taste was, for me, a bit of the more surprising part than anything else. I can taste a lot of malts coming through, which made it more "sweet," but there was also hint of bitterness. For me, it was very drinkable as it was a bit more on the malty side. 8% ABV? I didn't realize that until I came on here to review.

Overall, I think it's a great beer to drink. I had few red ales recently, and I think this one is the best one of the bunch.

Serving type: on-tap
