Raul took his first sip and he was like... And then he took another sip and he was like... Wow - 97? That's like one point higher than the Atlanta Olympics. I guess this thang is rated so high because all other Reds are rated so low. It's definitely smooth, but not without that overly caramel and syrupy taste.

Kind of like Raul's first ginger, he's happy that he tried it, but he'll pass the second time around.


A year later, Raul indulged himself again and he figures that it's not a bad beer (not that the main man thought that it was before) but it's definitely above average. Not great, no no no. But like that one Spice Girl, if it's there, I'll take a bite. But if not, I'm nit trippin'.
