Pours a nice, thick head. Color is a solid, clear amber.
Smell is surprisingly sweet, coming off almost as a sucrose grape.
First sip has a number of qualities with sour grapes. Malt is added as a nice foundation for the beer overall. Sweetness is there, but significantly less than what was present in the nose before. It almost has a buttery taste to it that I didn't expect to get out of a Red Ale. It's new and very interesting.
I've never had a bad beer from Short's and this definitely keeps with the trend. Pick one up sometime!
