A - Clear golden red beer with a short off white head and significant lacing.

S - Flat, muted nose, with a mild hop vegetal note.

T - Crackery malt, with a strong hop bitterness.

M - Clean, clear, crisp brew with significant bitter line that builds.

O - Simple, straightforward red ale. Nothing too complex, but pleasant and drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber, with a thick, foamy head; nice persistence and quite a few strands of lace

Smell: Toffee overwhelms, with vanilla and herbal tones in the back; a hint of pine

Taste: Toffee and vanilla, up front, with apple and a husky, grainy bitterness building in the middle; subtle hints of pine blend with the sweeter tones to bring together the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am less than enthused about this beer; way too sweet for my palate and the mouthfeel is too thick, as well

Thanks, fredmugs, for the opportunity
