Came to the table with almost no head, which was disappointing, but maybe they didn't want to piss off people who demand a 'full glass.'

Either way, it smelled great. Light caramel malts under a big bouquet of hops. Tasted like an IPA with a medium toffee maltiness riding beneath it. The mix was beautiful.

A little sticky, medium-bodied like an IPA. We bought a growler as a gift to some friends on the way out.

Had a couple of these at $1.50 a pint, a real bargain. Red in color with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Nondescript sweet aroma, maybe a little fruit. Definitely more fruit in the taste, but still a little vague. Decent hops. Probably a good session beer.

Not much of a head, but then again it is a bar pour. It does leave ample coating of lace after each sip. The color is a solid brown where lightest shine through. It appears to be cloudy, but it's hard to tell.

This beer has a good blend of dryish malt with enough hop prevent this from being one-dimensional.

Good body with an above average level of carbonation. The beer starts with a very brief crystal malt start. This is more hoppy than most reds. A very easy beer to have more than one.

Pretty good for a retired beer. Had at brewery September 2016.
Pours red with thin white head. Smell has some wine notes, fruity. Taste is malty with some bitterness. Good for a red. Mouthfeel is smooth. Overall a nice red.
