Dark, deep ruby pour. Beautifull beer in my opinion. Nice sticky one finger head.
Smells mixes malts and hops making it hard to distinguish one another. Clashing but in a good way. "harshness" immediately came to mind.
Taste was nice. Medium in body, malty with a very bitter bite.
Have to say, despite the previous reviews, I was really liking this one

3.48/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: clear amber in color with a 1" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface foam. Some lace develops.

Smell: soft caramel and fruit sweetness are very mellow on the nose.

Taste: caramel and ripe fruit sweetness dominates. Some soft earthy hop bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Smooth from start to finish. The malt and fruit sweetness linger on the tongue for a while.

Drinkability: this beer was nicely malty and a nice change from hop heavy beers, but one was enough in a session for me.

Had this on tap at the Black Bear in Morgantown.

A: By far the best thing this beer has going for it. A really pretty deep, rich red tone with a decent 1 finger head that hangs on for a bit.

S: A touch of caramel with a hint of hops but not much else

T: A little hops, a little caramel, a little of this, and a little of that, and that's it for this beer....a little.

M: Light bodied but nothing really lingering of anything

D: Could drink this beer all day but you might as well get the PBR at the Black Bear for its cheaper price.

This is an average beer in every sense of the word. Average, average, average. Nothing to write home about but its worth a try if you have the chance just don't go to far out of your way for it.

Thanks to AmericanBrew for sharing this bottle.

This is my first review from West Virginia. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is dark malts with some citrus and wheat. The flavor is sweet malt, caramel and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I had this on tap poured into a large wine glass at a tasting event.

It is impressive to look at. It is a dark reddish brown with a thick tan head.

The scent is just average with malty smell.

The taste is not so great. It is mostly malt, no hops that I can detect.

The mouth feel is fine, but I would not drink another. I may try the beer again at the actual brewery. I hope the poor taste had something to do with transporting the beer to the tasting event.

Had on tap at Black Bear Burritos, Morgantown, WV. Pours a nice dark red with some nice head and good lacing. Decent scent, a bit of nice malt, but nothing spectacular and nothing bad. Weak taste, not much of a nice red ale, more like hop water, with some decent hop characteristics, but almost nothing in the actual red ale, or any ale, flavor. Goes down fine, but I will never get this again.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a lightly hazed amber color with a medium thin and creamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Patches of lacing. The aroma is lightly malty and fruity. The body is a little thin and smooth, with caramel malt and fruit flavors, as well as some hops in the background. The finish is tart fruit with a lingering sweet malt aftertaste. As N.E.T.’s flagship beer this should be a little better.

A minimal nose from this dark reddish brown ale. Not much head, medium to light carbonation. The most noticable thing about this Red is the deep, smooth mouthfeel. I would drink this anytime, anywhere. Great job on what I believe is their flagship brew. I will go back for more asap.

Paid $2.50 at the brewpub, where the tanks were covered with Christmas lights. Enjoyed the atmosphere more than the beer. Nothing too impressive with the mouthfeel or smell. Poured rather nice and with good carbonation and lacing surrounding the glass. Tasted fresh from the tap (however, they gave me a frosted mug). I suggest trying some others, the bartender will give you a free sample of the brews on tap.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance: Caramel amber hue with an off white tan head leaves some speckled lacing. Aroma: A touch of caramel malts and maybe even some hops with this one can be detected. I was hyped about this brew figured the smell is actually decent can't wait to taste. Taste: Well, don't get your hopes up very clean reserved flavor a trickle of malt sweetness creeps in but this brew is watery no hops there just some caramel malts and water very bland. Mouthfeel: Lighter bodied brew even carbonation just not impressed. Drinkability: I guess this is their award winning brew and that explains why I probably won't over extend myself to make it back to the NET.
