2.55/5 rDev -24.8%
Pours a completely clear dark red ale. There is very little carbonation and only the thinnest layer of a white head is created and goes away immediately.
Smell has a lot of dark malts to it. A sweet malt smell with some dark fruits, like prunes and raisins, a little plum.
Taste doesn't have a ton going on. Dark fruits and a strong plum taste. Not much beyond that.
Mouthfeel does not have a ton going on. Very thin with no feel.
Drinkability is okay on this thing. It is easy drinking, but not much to the taste, so not sure you would want to drink much of this beer.

This beer pours a bold, clear copper with no head or lasting lace. The aroma is caramel with some hints of wood and grass. The flavor leads off with caramel and nuts followed by bread crust and a mild hop bitterness. It's mouthfeel is light-medium, drier than most Irish reds. Frankenmuth Red Sky Ale is a decent beer, recommended.

Even though I saw the ratings on this one before I did a write-up, I was still excited to try it out. The others I've had of Frankenmuth were impressive.
This seems mildly belgian to me, odd enough as it is to say. The amber ale tones are definitely there, but it's a little tight, in my opinion. I'd like it to be more open and slightly more vibrant. But it's still an alright ale to be drinkin'. Hmmm. I sound like a pirate. I be drinkin' this here ale. Arrrhhhh.
P.S. This is better when warm.

A: Nice rich apple cider red with a giant foamy head that quickly recedes, leaving behind only minimal lacing.
S: Spicy hops and crisp apple malts. There's an old sharpness to it.
T: Sharp tart and sour apples, light maltiness
M: Nice foamy carbonation that really gives it good texture and helps to bring out the flavor more. Fairly well rounded medium body.
O: A distinctly tart irish ale that's a welcome change of pace from the average.

This beer poured out as a nice deep red color with a cream colored head on top. The smell of the beer has some roasted malt aromas as well as some sweet caramel as well. The taste of the beer is much like the nose, the toasted malts and the caramel come through with a nice crisp hoppy finish. The mouthfeel of the beer was carbonated nicely with a decent body to it. Overall I found this one to be pretty good.
