A-This beer was clearly crimson colored. Nearly no head. Not much lacing either. A bit cloudy.

S-Mild. Hard to truly describe. Sweet with a tiny herbal hop aroma. Pretty bland.

T-Like the nose. Bland. A rather light Irish Red. Herbal hops are light. Toasted caramel flavor was the frontrunner.

M-Light and well carbonated. Crisp enough.

O/D-Not very happy with this one. Overly bland and I also don't love the style. Perhaps the worst Beer Works beer I had at the sitting.

The nitro tap makes for a beautiful pour. It leaves a blanket of slippery lace that finishes with ample spots. The color is golden amber and quite clear for a tap pour. 

Hard to smell the bar pour since I am near the lines and am fighting the stale beer smell.  Modest bittering hop to the nose 

Strong flavor of iron--metallic.  Overall, this is a balanced beer with a good malt-hop blend. Fairly nondescript, although the nitro carbonation makes for excellent smoothness.
