Had on tap at the brewery.

Clear, reddish-brown. Light, little bubbles. Smelled not too much of cherries, and salt water. Taste is not off-putting, but not outstanding either. Light and easy across the palate. Seems well designed for style.

It was a treat to have a "rare" SA beer while in it's home town.

Serving type: on-tap

A- very caramel red with no foam at all. Very basic in terms of body and color

S- very sweet with caramel and sugar flavor

T- brick red is malty and sweet. A good amount of flavor in terms of the malty experience

M- a little light but still good on the sugary flavor

O- what else can be said, I am in Boston and you have to embrace this type of beer experience
