look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: It's Red. Poured into a Sam Adams pint, it poured with about a finger of head which quickly fades. Like I said, it's red, but with a copper tone to it.

Smell: I first smell strawberries. It has a very sweet sugary scent. a touch of caramel.

Taste: A very forward caramel flavor, with a hint of fruitiness, strawberry's, cherry's. Very refreshing!

Feel: Very easy to drink, light bodied and medium carbonation.

Overall: I'm very satisfied with this brew. It's really much better than the ratings suggest, in my opinion.
