Seems like your typical red ale. Not very suprising in any aspect, except that it is unfiltered so it's a bit hazy. If they bottled, it could go for a bit of time in a bottle, not too sure how it would hold up in a Growler though.

I'm not sure if I would ever get this again with so many other good offerings on tap.

The head had subsided before the pint had even been served to me. The color is a cloudy deep red that is almost brown. The aroma is of sweet malt with a touch of noble hops. Flavor is very clean with a maltiness that is matched by the hops, yet both are very mild. Mouthfeel is very thin and this beer is pretty watery for a Red. No bitterness from the hops or the malt is detected and i must say this beer is very boring. Overall i would rather walk to the liquor store and buy whatever was in the case than this beer.
