3.01/5 rDev +7.1%
A: poured from the 12oz bottle into the pint glass. Average all aroun
S: faint malt backbone with some fruity tones of berry
T: very mild. Pretty much a bready malt center with some citrus notes around. A bit of hop bitterness balanced by some fruity berry sweetness.
Overall nothing special but not bad. Wouldn't turn this down but wouldn't seek it out or buy from a store.

A: Looks like a red ale, nice color but little head that dissipates quickly.
S: Mildly floral smell. Slightly less difficult to capture a waft, compared to Lobotomy Bock.
T: Taste is similar to Lobotomy Bock--very plain but moderately refreshing. Finishes pretty cleanly--I appreciate the red ale residue, and it's the only part of this brew that has some punch.
M: Watered down, thin, pleasant enough.
O: If you find most Red Ales too strong, then you may like this beer. Otherwise, it is a lackluster brew that feels like it's holding back. I really want to like this beer, but it just doesn't have enough of the primary characteristic I require--taste.

The color of the beer fits its moniker, it is in fact red, dark red and brown. Flimsy head, not much in terms of head, no lace, retention. Aroma, ugh, smells like someone found some discarded used oil somewhere in the mojave desert and used it as an aroma adjunct. But that's not all that is there in the aroma, there is a discernable red malt and caramel component, so its not a total loss.
Really bitter taste for not having a perceptible hop presence. Tastes like some bad homebrew recipes from brewers who like to cheap out or do hodgepodge type of batches. Has that weird dark fruit raisin/prune kind of bitterness maybe, maybe thats what it is I'm tasting I don't like, brings out the alcohol and flavors of a challenging quad, without the belgian yeast.
Not recommended. If you want to make a red ale without hops, fine, make it smooth. But why make a red ale that is nasty bitter without hops? It just doesn't taste good.

Big off white to light tan head with a thin lacing above a clear reddish amber colored beer.
Rich roasted to almost burnt caramel malts aroma.
Heavy caramel malts that almost verge on burnt caramel malts taste.
More heavy caramels in a light dryish aftertaste on this medium bodied beer.
A little heavy on the caramel malts for me.

Tried this a couple times each straight from the bottle. Dark copper color with a bit of a dusty fruit smell with just the slightest hint of some hop on the back. Having driven by Indian Wells I was pretty excited to try some of their beers but this along with the Gold disappointed. The Red Amber color wanted to strive for a nice full body beer but this one fell short and was quite watery and thin. Out in the desert guess it good to have something cold to drink but I would pass on this one if given another option.
