dark amber colored, tan foam on top. one finger, settles to a 1/4.... nice sticky lacing on the side. hops dominate the aroma, with some malt on the side. this is a typical 'red', no?
malt up front, but quickly gives way to bitter hop flavor. some earthiness at the end and a little lingering sweetness. I think the sweetness is more of an absence of the previous bitterness that was on the tongue. I got a little chocolate in there, also; am I the only one who got this out of it? never mind, it passed....
overall, it's alllrighttt... nothing special, but decent enough to drink. like someone else mentioned, the price point doesn't make this a satisfying experience. it's average, but the price is above average, evenm 5 miles south of the brewery where shipping shouldn't be an issue in the escalation of price. but oh well. it's still drinkable.
