I picked this up as a single 12oz bottle as part of a mix and match six pack at a supermarket in WI.

The beer poured a red/orange amber color with almost no head from the pour and no lacing due to the lack of head.

The aroma of this beer is very weak and very tough to pick anything out. The only thing I can detect is a very weak caramel/malty smell.

The taste is a repeat of the aroma. Very weak caramel/malty taste.

This beer is very light bodied with moderate carbonation, a very noticeable lack of complexity.

I bought this beer with some higher expectations but sadly I was disappointed. While there isn't anything "offensive" with this beer, it doesn't excel in any areas other than overall easy drinkability. It doesn't taste bad, but it also doesn't represent the style very well either. Overall, a very lackluster beer and I'm glad I didn't commit to buying anymore than one bottle of it.

Pours a maroon with a thin, white head. Belittle carbonation. Very smooth, too sweet. Not a whole lot of anything else going on with this red ale. But goes with great pizza.

Got this as part of a Wisconsin Dells Brewery variety pack. 4 different beers 3 of each kind for a total of 12 beers altogether.

The beer poured a crystal clear red/orange color with a 2-finger beige head that lasted about a minute before dissipating. There was no lacing whatsoever.

There is absolutely no smell to this beer. It doesn't smell bad. It's just that there's no smell at all. I stuck my nose into the glass, swirled it around, and still - no aroma. It just smells like air.

The only real flavor here is a mild caramel maltiness.

Light bodied with medium to high carbonation.

There's nothing offensive about this beer, but nothing to rave about either. Goes down easy, but there is a complete lack of complexity.
