Slightly hazy golden red color with a small frothy white head that sits around for a bit. Nice, fine lacing down the glass. Looks much heavier than it really is.
Weird, almost no aroma at all, just the slighest hint of sweet caramel malts, that's about it. I wonder if this one is a little old. Tiny bit of biscuity malts in there too if I try really hard.
Kind of honey sweet with the expected caramel malts, but not very spicy or much else going on to really make it taste like a red ale. Actually it tastes a little more like a blonde with caramel malts in it. Just a little hop bitterness to round it out, but no hop flavors really.
Slightly full bodied with moderate carbonation and a really creamy smooth feel. This is probably my favorite thing about it.
Not exactly a red ale, in my opinion. Really pretty basic, kind of mass market tasting. I guess a good gateway beer for some BMC fans, but just not very interesting at all to me. That said, it's refreshing, decent, and a good session beer, so I wouldn't knock it too much.

Sampled back on 10/23/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.
Pours copper-brown in color with a thin white head. Left a lot of lacing with each sip. The aroma isn't much actually, maybe some caramel with some grain. The taste was much better than the smell. A tad 'watery' at first but has a lot of complex flavors at the end. Perfect carbonation and great balance. Smooth to drink and goes down easy. Better than many other 'Red Ales' i have had.
