This beer comes from Griffin Claw Brewing Company in Birmingham, MI

Served in a 16 oz can in to a standard pint glass. Served at around 41 degrees, not very cold. El Rojo is a Red Ale, and when poured it pours slightly hazy, with an amber red color. It could have been how I poured it, or how shook up the can was, but the head did not have great retention making the beer seem a bit flat. The smell is not extremely appealing as it smells like a mix of iron and malt. The taste is much better than how it smells, exemplifying biscuity malts with hints of of toffee, caramel, and subtle hops. Overall a well balanced beer as far as taste.

The overall drinkability I would list as simply okay. I am not sure I could drink more than one of these beer in a sitting.

Serving type: can
