look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On-tap at The Bruery,

A: Pours red with a moderate off-white head, solid retention, spots of lace.

S: Soap and white grapefruit, interesting nose, but not great.

T: Definite red ale/crystal malt flavour. Not over-hopped, the sweetness of the malt comes through which I like, but not a striking flavour. An American sessioner.

M: Medium-bodied, crisp and striking carbonation.

D: A solid effort, not too hoppy which I like in the red, but I certainly prefer the Loakal, the oak really rounds that one out.

On-tap at the Bruery

A: The pour is a dark amber color with a finger or more of off-white head.

S: A decent hoppiness with plenty of toffee, toast, and nutty malt notes. There is a bit of chocolate to the aroma. The hops are very perfumey with lots of citrus peel and aromatics.

T: The citrus and hop flavors are sort of muted, but there's still a really nice bitterness to it. Toasted and toffee malt flavors with a touch of chocolate underneath.

M: The body is medium with a pretty high carbonation and a bitter finish.

D: Would have preferred this to be a bit hoppier, but such is life. Still pretty good as it is.
