Solid red lager taste. Alcohol taste was prominent for the percentage. Good look and feel.

This one nearly is red, at the very least a dark red-orange. The sheer darkness gives it a certain thickness and opacity, though it's clear otherwise. On top, a tan head grows at firs to over two fingers, then settles to a firm, creamy foam about half a finger for the rest of the session. Lacing is left beginning with a hearty ring and following with solid patching.
This red has a pretty nice nose, favoring malts but with a touch of hops imparting earthy notes. Otherwise, there's a toasty note running through, a bit of nut, light caramel, and some leaf. It could use a bit more so it doesn't take as much effort to draw out.
The taste goes more leafy, with breads coming through as the strongest malt element, and toasty at that, while caramel does add a dose of sweetness. I don't have the can with me anymore to verify English varietals of either hops or malts or both, but there's an extremely distinctive tea-like note and minerality. A very light touch of some dark fruit flashes before an earthier component finishes it out. This is a more old-school red, to be sure.
The body is quite good, a firm medium heft supporting without overtaking it. Crispness is light but constant, allowing a thick sort of smoothness to fill it out.

Reminiscent of a winter warmer. Tasty, though not dead on for style.

Pours amber red with a slight haze. Thick, creamy, off-white head. 1.5 inches slowly dissipating. Sweet, malty nose, with caramel and yeasty notes. Medium light body and decent lingering Well-developed lacing. Toast, nuts, caramel, and pumpernickel bread on the palate. Very low on hops - would have enjoyed greater hop-malt balance. Tasty.
