2.36/5  rDev -14.5%

Not a great looking beer. A ruddy brown, a bit cloudy. I'd almost go so far as to call it "pond water." Decent head though, and ok lacing.

Whoa, this is a butter bomb! Buttered popcorn with a hint of crystal malt on the nose. More crystal malt on the palate with a soapy bitterness and a strange overbearing tartness on the finish (?). This is not a very good red ale.

Mouthfeel's a bit thin for the style, but otherwise ok.

My least favorite of Baja's offerings. Maybe it was a bad batch.

Reddish hue. Butterscotch, grassy, peppery aroma. Butterscotch taste. Malty, worty taste. Overall, easy Beer to walk in off the street with and have as your first craft beer. Not in line to style.
