From a growler...

Foamy off-white head forms, several fingers deep, forms with moderately vigorous poor. Lacing sticks to glass.

The extra red's "extra," presumably, comes from it's slightly elevated ABV (note: I think the proper ABV is 6.5%--I seem to recall it from the chalkboard at taproom and untappd entry concurs, but not certain enough to just change it...). It drinks like a less potent beer. It's very clear; deep copper, but at edges when tilted takes on a color similar to a marzen--a little bit lighter than I would have expected.

Nose has malt sweetness, light caramel, toasty, and floral/spicy hops that follow in the quaff. A little bit of fruit. **Update: Poured another glass out of the growler next day, and it the nose was bright with 3C-type citrus/pine aroma. Very pleasing. Not sure why I didn't pick this up the first go-round.

There is definite malt body and sweetness, medium-light, finishing somewhat sweet. It balances with floral, spicy hop. Carbonation is soft and bitterness asserts its presence but somewhat meekly.

Overall an easy-drinking beer with round, smooth flavors. The bitterness is restrained, but not to the point where it seems like a flaw.
