3.58/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear red amber with thin tan foamy head, poor retention and okay lacing. Pale malt and lager aroma with hints of tea. Spicy hop and tea with a nice touch of rye malt character. A fairly clean finish with just a light bitter linger but long. Smooth with a nice sharp bite.

Not much on the aroma but a full flavor sweet malt character with the spice and tea bite indicative of a good red. It's certainly nothing out of the ordinary but it's done just right. It definitely needs to be warmer to allow all the flavor to come out.

Picked up a single from Total Wine in late April for $1.29.

Beer poured a murky red with a little off white head that is leaving no lacing.

Nose is malty with a hint of citrus.

Taste is caramel malts, apples and citrus. Pretty well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of flat.

Overall not a bad beer, Unfortunately with no bottling date that i could find i suspect i have an old bottle. Could be better fresher.

3.94/5  rDev +11%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Amber red with not much head or carbonation. Very drinkable hoppy red ale. The hops and bitterness last on you tongue for quite a while. Not an everday beer at 7.5 abv, but one or two every once in a while for a nice change of pace. Very affordable at 6.99 for 6 pack in KC. Will buy again at this price point.
