Ah yes, an old standby. Sadly I think I've seen the price of a sixer go up noticably lately.
This one is quite nice and available almost everywhere in W. Michigan.
A- Nice glowing burnt orange/reddish hue, with a one finger whiteish head. Decent lacing.
S- The smell is there, it's decent. Lots of your basic good malts. Hints of hops pop in and out.
T- This one is well-rounded. I get malts up front, malts in the middle, and malts on the back. There is no one point during which the hop flavor comes up. Similar to the smell, it randomly appears.
M- This one is good. It feels like you're drinking a top-fermented, ale beverage.
D- SESSION BEER. This one fits the mold for me. It's got enough taste to satisfy, but a low enough abv. where your not tripping after two!

This offering pours a deep burgundy color with a small off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is subtle but pleasant with a nice balance of malt and hops as well as an underlying alcohol note. It sips smooth and clean with a light to medium body. The flavor is pleasant and quite balanced between the sweetness of the malt and the bitterness of the hops. This is definitely a beer that you could sit and drink a number of and enjoy each one. Not particularly complex or remarkable but very balanced and damn good.

Pours a clear red-copper with a healthy beige head that quickly drops to a film with a ring around the glass. Decent retention; some lacing.
Pervasive alcohol sourness with malt notes. Spicy caramel up front with sweet aromas and some hoppy astringency.
Rich, full flavor. Mellow malt tastes with a little caramel and a quick touch of dry hops at the end. Very nice.
Medium body and a little thin-feeling with prickly carbonation and a coating, silky finish.
Mellow, inoffensive, and drinkable. This beer is certainly nothing to write home about but is a solid red beer and would make for a good session beer or could be a good stepping stone into craft for non-beer-drinkers.
Might have again if I had access; a safe bet for a solid, generally enjoyable brew.
Serving type: on-tap
