The Scarlett pours as beautiful as the girl on the label. The beer was a deep rich clear amber with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent was very malty. The taste was ok....started very nice then a weird stringent funk piled on leaving me to scratch my head. Does not come off the pallet as nice as other ryes. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this beer is ok....not sure I'd run out to buy it.

Poured one finger of head on a clear, amber colored body.
The aroma is red licorice, rye spice and lemon.
The taste is moderate bitterness with a slight honey sweetness and finishes with a bold bitterness. Nice profile.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable red rye ale.

Poured a reddish brown and had nice head retention and lace. A rather light, nondescript aroma for a rye beer as I get a little bit of roasted and sweet malts, along with citric hops and rye, but nothing really going on here and it's a little odd. Smooth, easy to drink, this isn't a bad beer in my opinion but it just seems to misfire. The rye gives it a little dryness and heartyness, and the sweet malts and hops are in there and balanced but as I finished my glass it was more grainy and harsh than anything resembling sweetness or hoppiness. A good beer but not one of the greats.
