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

On-tap at Bootlegger's,

A: Pours a light red, light haziness, soft white head.

S: Sweet crystal/red malt, sugary, biscuity.

T: Good overall malt flavour not overbearing as many in this category can beer. Hop flavour is inviting with predominantly piney flavours with some grass and light citrus.

M: Medium-bodied, crisp carbonation, smooth.

D: Well made for a hoppy red ale. As a pilot batch I think they should go with this, flavour is real close to a 4 for me.

On-tap at Bootlegger's

A: The beer pours a dark amber, as advertised, with a finger or so of off-white head.

S: Intensely fruity to begin with. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit on the front end. The malts start to come through after the fact with caramel and toffee leading the way. A slight toasted character exists, also.

T: Pineapple and grapefruit start things off on the tongue, too. A solid maltiness of caramel, toffee, and bread, but there does seem to be just a little bit of alcohol.

M: The body and carbonation are both what I would call medium.

D: I would have preferred a more hop forward approach here, but this wasn't bad at all.
