2.78/5 rDev -18%
Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.
What can I say? This stuff pours a clear pale bronze topped by a finger of dirty off-white foam. You know it's a bad omen when a red ale doesn't even look all that close to red... The nose comprises lightly minty pine, sweet caramel, and a touch of earthy greens in the back. The taste brings in more of the same, but everything pretty much dies near the middle of the palate, leaving a vague earthiness cold and lonely for the duration and a my tongue confused and abandoned. This is kinda sad. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a mediocre, limp little red ale. 'Nuff said.

3.35/5 rDev -1.2%
Into a pint glass. Lots of head, foamy. Light, clear copper colored body.
It has a strong malty hay smell, some bread dough too.
Bigger malt bill in the taste, milder bitterness. Lends a little sweetness at first and then dried out by the hops in the latter half.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Nothing fancy but good and easy drinking.
