2.4/5  rDev n/a
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Reviewed from session notes.

Pours out a murky brownish-orange in color, not particularly red for a red ale at all. Plenty of sediment, not quite a head but rather a short-lived fizzy color without lacing. Smells and tastes....bland. Maybe some faint citric hopping on top of a muddy malt base. Flavor is comprised of very dry generic malts and a lightly medicinal / herbal finish. Texturally, the brew is a bit too watery and thin for my tastes, but at least the carbonation is spot-on.
All in all, I wasn't particularly impressed by this one.

3.01/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Hazy sunset orange, frothy foam that has a creamy texture on the surface. A cluster of larger bubbles dissipates in the center, forming lunar craters. Audibly fizzy foam on the first pour, second pour the head sticks around for awhile. Streaky, muddy lace on the second pour with the yeast sediment coloring things a bit.

Doesn't really smell like much of anything at first, apple and yeasty notes as it warms.

Tastes pretty lean, simple and lightly malty, apple notes from the yeast. A little tangy and watery, possibly overattenuated. Hint of alcohol there at room temperature, which seemed a little odd. Seems a little bit underdeveloped in general, hopefully the next batch has more substance.
