On tap into a flute-type glass at the Mirror Lake Inn in Lake Placid. Reviewed from notes dated June 25, 2014.

A-My beer arrives with about two fingers of tan head. The foam is sticky with lots of lacing. The beer is brassy brown in color and still looking in the glass. It is murky in there.

S-The aroma is musty and grainy.There is a suggestion of roasted barley and some cocoa flavors, but the malts are more earthy and mundane than fruity, sweet, or chocolatey. Hops are very light with just a bit of grassy bitterness.

T-The taste tracks the smell closely. Flavors are mild, earthy, and a bit grainy overall. I would have expected a red ale to pack a bit more hop profile, but this beer has only a light grass flavor and a hint of bitterness on the finish.

M-The feel is a decent match for the flavors with medium heft and milder levels of carbonation.

O-This beer doesn't smell or taste like what I would expect from a red ale. It reminds me more of an English Bitter with the mellow flavors, heavier malt profile, and smooth carbonation. It pairs alright with the afternoon snack of cheese and nuts that I had, but I wouldn't search this beer out.
