4.13/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: Very clear amber with fine head
S: Smell is faint and has hints of malt but nothing much to it
T: Very nice for an amber. Smooth malt and a hint of honey.
M: Glorious mouthfeel, thick for an amber and with carbonation. I could feel the beer linger after each sip.
D: Very drinkable and would be a good session beer
I'm wondering whether having it on-tap changed the feel, because it felt much thicker to me than it seems for most other people judging from the other reviews.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
