Got to try this beer at New York Comic Con 2014. During booth setup on Wednesday they were providing free pints of this beer to anyone at the convention center. Two of the people with me were not 'beer drinkers' and they were surprised by this beer.

I thought this was a solid Red ale - very drinkable and something that would work well in 6pk if it were to distro.
