4/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Cool skull label with bowling pins and hops in the mouth. No freshness date.

Appearance: Pours a light amber beer and a patchy white creamy, foam head. Last drop was full of "stuff" and turned the beer a bit cloudy.

Smell: Big malty, biscuit, fresh grain aroma.

Taste: Smooth and relatively light on the palate. A bit fruity, hint of roasted, with a mineral/metallic flavoured back bone. Mild sweetness. Low hop bitterness with a slight floral flavour. Bready and biscuit malt flavours follow with a bitty/grain mouthfeel and a crisp dryness that runs into the finish.

Notes: Doesn't resemble a "red ale", but this beer has many of the typical characteristics that you might expect -- crisp, dry, touch of roasted, etc. It's also very basic, making for some easy, no thinking drinking. A superb session beer.

Thanks to Arctic Liquors for the sample.
