Beautiful coppery red color with lots of foam in the New Belgium snifter. Pleasurable sudsy mouthfeel.

Hops are full of aromatics with some immediate bitterness along with the earthy taste. There is a nutty flavor with very light hints of vanilla and pecan. Lush and malty. Touch of caramel and a leafy, herbal edge. Finish is dry and moderately bitter. An excellent quaff.

This is one of the better Red Ales I've had, and another reason that El Segundo is my favorite brewery in the LA area. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Mega Liquor in Hemet, Calif.

On tap at the Promenade Beer & Wine Festival in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a hazy dark orange-red with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, toast, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet toast and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.

Another gift from my co-worker Tina. Thanks again! Coming out of a 22 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Very dark amber colored, crossing into crimson. A frothy head forms on top, retaining in a fine manner. Webbed lacing clings around the glass, providing the eyes with a good show. I get a decent aroma. Powdery semi-sweet chocolate sets the tone, malted chocolate balls, and a note of orange.

Station No. 1 spurs itself from the hoppy profile of many El Segundo beers. This is more malty than hoppy, and the powdery semi-sweet chocolate note from the aroma creeps into the taste. I also taste esters, and a soft pine flavor. It's a medium-full bodied beer with a whisper of the alcohol being noticed.

More than decent red ale from El Segundo.
