Batch 22 A/B
Deep red pour when held to light, sediment noted throughout-doesn't bother me. Onset lacing is all over then disappears.

Aroma is bright and floral. Resiny pine, malt, sweet and hoppy.

Big and deep almost imperailish. Fruity and piney. Grapefruit rind and a gentle sweetness.

Smooth and chewy. Bitterness lingers well.

A well crafted and delicious red ale.

Batch 22A/B
Had to add this great beer form a town that is one over form mine, Urban Legend, Westmont, IL (still haven't been to the brewery yet)
Had it in a 22oz bomber, will upload picture when the uploaded thing decides to be functional.
A: Poured into a pint glass. Beautiful red almost blood red vivid color. Extremely deep really a sight!
S: A bit of a floral aroma, some oak and hops.
T: Very bold, smooth unlike any red I've had! Taste is aplways tough for me but its a resiny hop, sharp but as I said, very smooth.
M: Filling, somewhat bready you can taste the quality here.
O: I'm very excited to see what comes of this brewery. This was a treat, quality is what I'm seeing in the brewery so far.
