This is an updated review. This one gave me a bad impression last time and I decided to give it another try.

The aroma is largely characterized by bread crust and toffee and is yet somehow reminiscent of baby formula. There's a touch of woodiness and raisin. Pours a firm, frothy, light tan head; the body is a clear, dark amber. The flavor tastes of spoiled apple and bread crust, the latter of which takes on a little toffee over time, along with some underlying resiny hop bitterness. The malty aftertaste is nice enough. The body is medium-light with moderate carbonation and a good carbonic bite; there's also a persistent mineral texture.

I really don't like this beer. It's labeled as a red ale, though I suspect that's more in reference to the appearance than to the style, since this tastes nothing like a red ale/American amber. But regardless of what style it's supposed to be, it's just not very good.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and biscuit-like aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of watery malt flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that has a decent smell but the flavors are pretty lacking.
