Should have branched out and tried the different varieties but once again my fascination with Red Ales kept telling me to give this one a chance. More like 6 or 7 chances on this particular evening in the Smokies. Not really characteristic of a pure red ale but at the same time a very drinkable beer. Sweet caramel taste but with overtones of dull nothingness and a mouthfeel that really lacks in overall satifaction. The room was too dark for a real view of the color, but from what I could tell it looked more like a pale ale.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No freshness date. Received as a gift.
A: Leaf brown with 1-finger of off-white head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing.
S: Metallic aroma with some sour hay and cardboardy malt aromas
T: There is some herbal hoppiness which makes this beer palatable along with some caramel malt sweetness. Not much else to suggest it though -- it is underattenuated and overly sweet.
M: Light to medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.
O: Not much good to say here -- there is no way to know how long ago this beer was made but it's certainly not good in its current state.
