3.13/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

A: Hazy mahogany with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates.

S: Slightly tropical piney smell not very strong though.

T: An earthy piney flavor, not as bitter as I was expecting, oak hints in here as well.

M: Rather syrupy with not much carbonation.

O: I think this may be old, maybe not fair to review it under these conditions, but I'll be revisiting this when I can assure it's fresh.

Had on-tap at Sunswick 35/35 in Astoria, NY on 10/28/11.
Review taken from notes.

This beer pours a nice dark mahogany color. It has a finger of light tan head resting on top. The head has good retention, and it leaves a sheet of sticky lace behind on the glass. The nose is of caramel malts and juicy fruits up front. There are some piney hop aromas that come out as well. Also, there are some notes of toffee, citrus, and a bit of earthiness. The taste starts off with some nice toasted malt flavor. There is also some good flavors of caramel, toffee, and there is a nice bit of fruitiness. There is some earthiness and a nice mild hop presence that comes through as well. The finish leaves a bit of lingering sweetness and mild hop bitterness. This has a medium body and good carbonation. It goes down easy and has a smooth feel to it. There is some good sweetness here that is nicely balanced out by the mild hop bitterness. There is some earthiness as well. There is some good drinkability here. I could easily drink a six pack of this. The flavor is really nice and it never gets boring. Overall, I think this is a really nice beer, and a good representation of the style. I enjoyed this one and I definitely recommend trying it out.

3.75/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Garnet-colored liquid with a foamy off-white 1-finger head.

S: A nice mix of carmel malts, piney hops, and a small amount of citrus.

T: Typical red ale with a bit more malt base. I detect some roastiness that blends nicely.

M: Finely carbonated, but has a thin consistency. Not bad for the style, though.

O: I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this is a decent beer all around. Not something I would regularly stock in my fridge, but I wouldn't turn one down if offered. A solid B-B+.
