Thx to RichBeer for this one, an extra in a recent trade!
Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
A- Body has a reddish-brown color that just glows in the light. The head was thick, frothy, light toasted tan color, great retention and awesome lacing!
S- Toasted malts, light citrus smell, light hoppy-ness as well! as it warmed, i noticed a tiny-bit of chocolate to the smell as well.
T- Goodness describes the flavor! sweet hops mixed with toasted malts; nummy goodness! there is a sweet-toasted bread maltiness, that mixes with the hop flavor which is slightly-dominant. as it warmed a caramely-chocolate taste showed up as well. overall a great mix of flavors!
M- Wonderfully smooth and creamy, easy on the palette. there is a wonderful, light bitterness from beginning to end.
D- This Red was a damn-tasty treat! i wish i lived in Cali, would drink it all the time! The creamy goodness was irresistible as i finished the glass way too quickly, yet enjoying every drink!

Had on-tap at Westville Pub Asheville. Served in a Southern Tier pint glass.
A- Pours a reddish light brown color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing clings to the glass.
S- Sweet smelling malt with a grassy hop fume that's so inviting.
T- Big assertive hop flavor with a somewhat sweet red ale malt profile. Hits the spot. Lingering piney bitterness. Alcohol shows itself just enough. Notes of caramel and brown sugar.
M- Dry and sharp with medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- One of my favorite red ales and probably my favorite Bear Republic beer to be completely honest (I have not had Apex).
Serving type: on-tap
