Pours to a golden, coppery look. Not much aroma, no matter how far you stick your honker toward it. Well-balanced amd good feel, but it ia lacking something, wish I could put my finger on it.

My fourth beer of the night. Bought it about a month back in Des Moines or Lincoln. Word on the street is its 5.2 abv ... Poured into a tulip glass from bottle and got about 5/8" of head. A golden coppery look. Couldn't make out much aromatically but i am battling a bug. Mothefeel is lacking, but not terrible. Nice flavor as it's pretty well balanced. Pretty unique and charming. Really quite good, and I'd have another if the opportunity ever arises.

Red Granite pours a reddish color with no head. Toasty and malty aroma. Taste is same; mellow sweet with toasted flavors. Good body and feel. Overall its solid, nothing over the top.

Wet and bitter red lager. It's going to be a bit lower in my red lager rotation, but it's one of the bitterest beers I've ever had and finishes pretty well. For what it's worth I can barely taste the caramel.

Bought this at a HyVee in middle Missouri. Only bought it because I've never had it before.

Extremely underwhelming. Smells off. Taste is cloying sweet crystal malt with little to no bready finish. Hops are non-existent. Taste reminds me a little bit of bud light platinum.

Will not repurchase. May not even finish the 6-pack.
