A - Pours red with a pick colored foam. Its supposed to look this way, but I found it not the best way to see your beer. Slight carbonation and rings of lcaing.

S - Smells of caramel malt, and fruit. Has almost a cherry smell, which is only more of a mtach ofr its reddish color.

T - Tastes like a sweet amber lager. Has some malty notes, but there is some sweet flavors of berries. Finishes with a bready yeast flavor.

M - Light feel, and noted carbonation. Has a feel similar to a Sam Adams Lager. Easily a beer you could have a few of.

O - Fun beer for Halloween but not one that stands out. Perfect to spice up a party with a good and flavorful beer.

Serving type: on-tap

This is, hands down, my favorite beer of all time. I encountered it a few years ago back home in Atlanta at a place called The Porter. It has a lovely blood red color and a pinkish foam that I've never seen in any other beer I've ever had. It has hints of apple, orange, and a floral print somewhere from what I tasted. At 6.66% ABV, it's a devilishly delightful drink. It's a little thin in your mouth, which doesn't really make a lot of sense considering the flavor you get. Also, the smell, doesn't really hit you as hard as I think it should, but those two things are minor compared to the beautiful flavor.

I was able to buy a bottle of this and did just because I had to pour it into a glass and see it with my own 2 eyes.

The appearance is a site to see red beer with a pink head awesome.

The taste on the other hand is nothing to brag about. It was drinkable, I will only have it this once.
