look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A: deep amber red, almost brown in color. rich 1 finger head died down before i could take my first sip. a little hazy, perhaps this one is unflitered, with tiny carbonation bubbles racing to the surface.
S: toasty sweet malts. caramel and brown sugar. not getting much hops with this one.
T: sweet, tangy malt with hops used more for balance rather than flavor. finishes with a bitter linger, caused more from some roasted malt rather than hops. if this is in fact unfiltered, not getting much from the yeast here. this one is all malt.
M: a solid medium body made up entirely of malt. good carbonation.
D: if im looking for a sweet brew, i could drink one of these. otherwise, not really gonna be craving one of these.
granted i like my reds much hoppier than this, i still feel like this brew is far too one dimensional. in my opinion this recipe could use some tweaking in the hop department.
