On-tap 3/30/2014 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub, in Pawtucket, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, caramelized malts, some citrus and other fruits.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness comes in to provide a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for while.

12oz bottle poured into a glass.
it has a dark reddish color body with a thin tan head. The sitell has a roasted malt aroma to it. The taste is malt forward with roasty taste. Also has a slight hop character to it. the mouthfeel is smooth and overall is a average red ale.

DeVeilEd is brewed in the the style of an American Red Ale. Released exclusively in the Fall 2013 Variety 12 Pack. A one-off brew.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Magic Hat pint glass. Served above 55º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a mocha cream head of a frothy, sudsy consistency over a deep burgundy, near brown body. Carbonation is plentiful and energetic, lacing is light and spotty and retention is average. 3.75

(Smell) Aromas of modest toasted caramel with a light graininess, light toffee, a pinch of unsweetened cocoa and a tempered floral, fruity hop profile. Fairly simple and pedestrian but also pleasant with few aromatic imperfections, there is a decent perceivable body for a fair balance between sweetness to body, balanced further by the earthy bitterness of the grain and toffee. Potency is medium+. 3.75

(Taste) The flavor range of the aroma is not as well preserved in the flavor. Up front, a simple light roasted and grain caramel malt body yields a mild to low sweetness against a dry, nutty and earthy body. Hops are equally muted in their presence, providing a trace of herbal and earthy flavor that accents the gruffness of the body. Finishes with a light grain malt and thin molasses finish. Neither impressive nor distasteful, it's drinkable on it's own, but otherwise, there isn't much balance to make this a memorable beer. 3

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, lightly chewy, a bit oily. Carbonation adds some creaminess and froth to the mix, livening things up a bit. Body is shy of medium for the style, medium overall. Alcohol presence is mild. Balance is earthy bitter over sweet. 3.5

(Overall) I find that DeVeilEd excavates a rift between red and brown ales, as I find unique flavor characteristics of both, but as uncommitted to style as the beer itself is, glaring issues with flavor composition are difficult to overlook nonetheless. The malt sweetness doesn't live up well to the body that this beer presents, yielding an average-at-best ale with a dry body. Texture and aroma make for positive potential, but in its current state, there is some work to be done on this beer. 3.25
