On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings into a Newcastle glass.

A: Clear, brilliant russet body under a fine cap of tan foam. Great lacing. Quite nice.

S: Stone fruits and crystal malts. Sweet and a bit boring.

T: Sweet, nutty malt dominates, with some assertively herbal hop bitterness on the finish.

M: Light body, lots of creamy carbonation. All right.

O: Tastes like extra-bitter Newcastle. I wasn't exactly clamoring for that.

Cheers!

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear burnt orange with a thin creamy tan head. Hardly the "blood red" described on the package. Aroma of lightly toasted bread. The flavor starts with a spicy rye bread flavor, followed by some plums, then a hint of citrus fruit. An earthy, nutty finish. Clean bitterness to round things out. Mouthfeel is good, low carbonation. Overall quite a bit better than I expected, though the description on the bottle of the appearance was quite a bit off ;-)

The bottle says "serve cool".

Follow this advice. When COLD, it is not outstanding. Seems a little harsh when cold.

Pour and let it warm up a bit. The beer comes into it's own when it gasses off a bit and comes to a slightly less than room temperature. It has a smoother balance and loses it's harshness.

I'd have to agree that it's more of a marketing gimmick than an unforgettable beer.

I don't love it, but it's a nice diversion.
