look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Light brown with a red hued body and a nice creamy off-white head and good lacing

S- As a red ale should, nice and crisp malts and a hint of hops in there that adds to the crisp nose

T- A little hop presence up front and moves into a nice roasted, nutty malt middle and finishes with that roastiness.

M- Light bodied and moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O- Fun to see a brewery new to me making such a solid beer. If I were able, this would be an all-day beer for me on vacation. The sessionable 5% abv is great.

This is my favorite beer in Cost Rica, now available in different locations in the central valley and coastal areas.
Appearance: Pours a reddish color, nice head that lingers for several minutes, forming a nice Belgium lace.
Smell: spicy, grainy and hoppy
Taste: clean crisp taste, a little sweet and bready with a good balance of bitterness
Mouth feel: medium bodied
Overall: Very good craft beer easy to drink

A great red ale! Found this brew in Costa Rica on tap and it hit the table with a reddish almost rusty color to it and about a finger of head which laced down the glass nicely. It smelled deep and malty with a hint of hops. It feels great going down and you get a nutty flavor with a great hop finish. Not overly carbonated, very clean finish, very crisp. This is not a heavily alcoholic brew. Its maybe 5-5.5%. Its a perfect year round beer and its great on a warm Cartago afternoon. I'm glad I brought some back with me.
