look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: A beautiful dark ruby with moderate head and retention. Unfortunately, it's in no way brown. It looks great but.... damn....

S: Malt forward with very little hop. Sweet smelling.

T: Same as the smell. Some grain I think.

M: Good carbonation for the style but too watery for the style.

O: This beer is kind of a pain in the ass to review. Fantastic color but not completely correct. In fact, nothing about this beer seems correct. I find it hard to give it a bad review though.
