Poured from a growler into a pint glass... hazy orange brown color with not much of a head.

The aroma is carmal and nuts... dominant malt flavor. It's pretty inviting for sure.

The taste is more of the same, nutty, malty, not much hop presence at all. Overall I like it, very refreshing beer but nothing super spectacular.

Served on draft in a shaker pint, the Red Knot is a hazy brownish amber with a slight off-white skim and collar.

The aroma is soft and sweet fruit, mainly apricot and peach.

The taste is maltier then the nose, which was really all english ale esters, and brings this back into scottish ale territory. Still, it's awefully fruity.

The mouthfeel is thin and watery.

This was moderately drinkable if you like thin, fruity english ales. It was probably my least favorite offering from Homer, although it was one of the more commonly available around town. A good session brew I suppose.
