2.89/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewpub. Clear brownish amber with a nice solid beige head. They served it in a plastic pint 'glass' for some reason and so the lacing stuck really well. Aroma is tangy malts but no obvious hoppiness really. Flavor is pure crystal malt. A total iced tea bomb. A little salty and a little lactic. I was surprised to hear the bartender tell me it was 8.5% because I don't taste any booze. But that's the only pro in this beer. Easy enough to drink, just not very flavorful or interesting.

3.7/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Served in a flared glass at the brewery. The board calls it a late-hop imperial red ale.

Hazy auburn. No head no lace. A bit fruity sour on the nose. Taste is very mild, round, wet, and fruity. Very full mouthfeel. Mild flavor. Super drinkable. Fairly recommended.
