Red Sky is a clear coppery red with some brightness. Its off-white head starts over one finger but takes very little time to fall to thin islands atop the beer with some edging that puts down spotty lace.
The undertone is healthier than it is bright with woody sorts of fruits, herb and leaf with lightly toasty undertones. It's pretty basic, but interesting enough.
There's good crispness and smoothness in a light body that might barely reach medium. It ends up a touch thin just into the end but keeps up well into the finish.

A: Copper red, light haze, medium low carbonation, 3 fingers of light beige fluffy head.

S: Toasted malts, caramel, toffee, apples.

T: Caramel, toffee, apple skins. Light tannic tea quality as well.

M: Medium body, little carbonation.

O: Really well done. Picked this one up in Frankenmuth, MI, drank in New Hamburg, ON Aug 24th, 2014. Well done and to style. Went to the brewery in Frankenmuth, which is quite cool. The beer is fresh, to style, and worthy of drinking!
