On tap at the Denver Bicycle Cafe into a pint glass.

A-The brew is cranberry-tinted honey in color with a slight haze. My pour arrived with about one finger of off-white head. The foam was short-lived and did not leave any lacing. The beer looks pretty still in the glass.

S-The smell is pretty mild, with decent doses of caramel and toffee being the main components. There is a little bit of grain, too. Very (very) light hops.

T-The taste is also heavy on the caramel and toffee malts. The brew is semi-sweet to sweet and hops are not noticeable. There is just a hint of spice in there, too. It is a bit simple, but not too far off from mainstream amber brews like Fat Tire.

M-The feel is a bit watery and thin. The carbonation is very mild.

O-I am glad to have tried a beer from Arvada since they don't see much distribution around town. Unfortunately, I don't know if Red is their best effort. If you are caramel-toffee fan, this beer might work for you, but I found it a little simple and the mouthfeel was lacking. Perhaps with some tweaking, this could make a good session beer?
