3.78/5 rDev +8.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A - Slightly more than a fingers worthy of airy moderately fluffy whimsical off-white colored head with a slight pinkish hue... Excellent retention... The color is a pale cranberry red with some amber undertones mixed in... Loaded with swirling small bubbled carbonation that starts a bit sluggish and finishes at a fairly quick pace...
S - Loaded with sweet caramel notes... Desert like breads... Bread pudding... Some light and delicate sweet cherry notes... A bit of overly ripened dark fruit... Not much at all in the way of hop presence...
T - After the overly sweet malt nose, the hop bite at the forefront is a bit of a surprise... A biting bitter character mixes amidst all of the sweetness expected and alluded to by the nose... Sweet fruits... Heavy bready malts... Caramel... However, the moderate hop bitterness is pervasive throughout... The deep finish even has a light woody character... Very interesting and fairly complex...
M - Medium bodied... Stern carbonation... Slightly sleek... Clean and crisp... Even and consistent...
D - A very nice American Red Ale... The nose is overly sweet, but there is great balance and complexity on the palate... Easy drinking and loaded with character... Honestly, I'm a bit surprised by ratings that I don't think accurately reflect what an excellent brew this is... I would gladly drink again and recommend to those seeking an interesting everyday brew...

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.

3.45/5 rDev -0.9%

The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish. Overall this was decent and a little better than average as far as Ambers go.
