Picked a sixer of this up at Susan's Fine Wine and Spirits in Santa Fe. According to the beer guy there, the new red is similar to the old Extra Special Red, except less malt and more hop flavors.
A: Poured into a poor man's pint, was a nice deep golden-red color. Came out with a nice solid inch of very light head, which left consistent lacing throughout the drink.
S: Still a fair amount of malt, but you can definitely tell that this has more hops than the Extra Special Red. Almost has a little bit of a sweet, spicy scent to it. Maybe a hint of paprika almost.
T: Fantastic. Great up front malt. Throughout there was a pleasant citrus flavor going along with it, and it finished with a sweet and fairly strong hop flavor.
M: Incredibly full and refreshing. I really enjoyed the fullness of this one; after a full day out hiking, this was great to sit down to.
D: At 6.5%, this beer is just at the threshold of being too strong for a session beer. However, I will say that I've very comfortably killed my 6 pack in two nights, and I plan on going down and buying up a case while it's here. Highly recommended if you're a fan of reds.
