This is one of the best Red's I've had in a while.

Has a nice deep red color, and a great head that sticks to the glass. There's an obvious carmel malty flavor with a mild hop taste.

Its a little on the heavy side, but I think I could drink it as a session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

The Great Dane in my neighborhood finally added the Devil's Lake Red on tap, if only for a few months. Served chilled in a pilsner glass.

A=Lighter yellowish red...started out cloudy in the pitcher, but settled. Foam was minimal...nice amber color, except lighter and more towards yellow than I would have liked.

S=I was not able to detect any smell, either positive or negative.

T=Very nice...stronger than other lagers, but not quite as flavorful as I had hoped for.

M=Very nice...lost a half-point for being a bit more watery than ideal.

D=The lightness of this beer makes this a very drinkable beer...I was able to drink 3-4 glasses from the pitcher without any difficulties.

I will likely get this again unless I can find another red that I like even more.

Serving type: on-tap

I had this one at the Great Dane in downtown Madison.

Poured a medium reddish brown color. Full head throughout the beer that took a couple minutes to settle and become drinkable. Tasted really good, nice malt flavor. Very smooth drinking beer. I could drink this all night.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Served in a shaker pint glass at the Madison brewpub.

Another entry in my pre-interview extravaganza. It pours a clear rosy pumpkin topped by a finger of white micro-froth. The nose comprises flowers, wheat, and some very light toffee. The taste holds notes of wheat, flowers, and, get this, white bread. Seriously, it tastes like biting into white bread. I've never encountered this before in a beer. Hmm. The body is on the lighter side, with a very light carbonation and a ridiculously smooth feel, almost nitro-tap- or cask-like. Overall, this was just a lackluster beer all around. If beer is liquid bread, this is liquid milquetoast. That said, it's easy enough to drink, but only because it's offensively unoffensive.

P: Served on nitro-tap @ Romans' Pub. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a beautiful reddish-auburn color with a two-finger, off-white head with excellent retention.

S: Extremely subtle nose. No prominent aromas detected.

T: Silky fusion of slightly sweet malt flavors balanced by the crisp taste of Hallertau hops. Nut-like notes and subtle traces of caramel. Very understated taste profile.

M: Smooth and creamy. Served high-nitrogen blend for a velvety mouthfeel.

D: Just okay. Aside from the exceptional mouthfeel, nothing remarkable going on here.

Serving type: nitro-tap
