Honestly, I think this bottle was probably stale. The problem with this is that I bought it at the brewery, kept it chilled and only had it for two weeks. Skunky, metallic and very disappointing. What I had tasted on tap there was actually good. I would have this again at the brew pub, but I'll think twice before picking up a bottle. Their bottles do not have a bottling date on them.

Pours clear amber, with golden highlights. A light khaki head leaves tons of lacing from the ring that forms around the glass.

Smells tang, malty, a bit roasty.

Taste is similar to smell, a bit of roasted malts, and tangy hop. Nothing that sticks out, but not horrible.

Texture has a bit of bite, not as smooth as a red should be, imo. Feels a tad thin, but is easy to drink.

I have been curious about this company, but this beer doesn't inspire me...

DOA
