Well I know I have had this brew before nut never reviewed it. Brew poured to a nice orange color with a good sized off white head that broke down to leave a sheet of foam on top and a nice amount of lacing down the side of the glass. The aroma good, nice toasted malt with a good amount of sweet caramel and seem to have a slight biscuit scent. Hops are there but are very muted. The flavor is all malt in my book. Similar to the aroma the toasted and caramel come out. Those flavors are nice, just seems to me that there should be more of a hop bite at the tail end and that is what I think is missing. Now with that being said I am not sure on the age of this brew, they could have fallen out I suppose - just a little more bite would be welcome. The carbonation here is good and that does help at the end, gives it a slight prickling feel. This brew drinks quite easy but for me this brew misses the bulls-eye, but I must say that the red lager style is not one of my favorites.
