look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

App. is clear burnt orange with thin off-white collar and very light lace at the top of the glass, a shaker pint.

Smell is pretty rich caramel malt and light peach esters.

Taste is fruitier then the aroma, more subdued and a little harsh.

The mouthfeel has a sharpness too it, although it's not really crisp.

Not too drinkable, I don't really like it that much and wouldn't want to have many of them. I guess this is pretty average micro red, but when they're so pedestrian, I really don't care for them.
