Not bad. Not my favorite style but the malty red is an easy drinker

Been storing this bottle sideways for months, so not sure exactly how this will affect thing. Also, drank this while watching the movie, Nosferatu (tip: it's not a great movie)

Appearance - 3.75/5
Deep red orange brown. Fairly hazy, fair amount of particles in the beer.

Smell - 3.5/5
Pine-citrus hops, some malt smell as well

Taste - 3.5/5
Quite sweet, fairly hoppy, but not too much so. Good balance between sweet malts and hops.

Mouthfeel - 3.75/5
Crisp, medium bodied, moderate amount of carbonation. Slightly bitter, but still easily drinkable.

Overall - 3.5/5
This is an okay brew, nothing special, nothing fantastic.

Bottle pour. Interesting clear orange/brown color with a head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma has strong caramel and biscuit notes with citrus hop as well. Sweet nutty flavors up front with earthy, resinous, and caramel elements. Palate includes creamy textures, with a little fizz and a medium body.
