A: Copper-red. Mostly clear. Slight haze. Small head.
S: not much there. Very faint, if any aroma.
T: slightly malty. Citrus hop flavor. With a pine-tree bitterness.
M: medium-high carbonation. Medium body.
O: drinkable, northwest red ale. Hopped up red. I like it but don't love it.

Mucho gusto. A favorite of mine I faithfully return to. An excellent red, nice dry malt flavor, with tasty bittering hops.

Clear amber colored ale with a small tan colored head. Calling this red is pushing the meaning of the term.

Smells woody with a pine board scent and a strong tea aroma.

Starts out malty and woody. Strong tea flavor. Moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall an average ale.

12 oz. bottle:

Pours copper with a thin, fading head. Some lacing.

The smell is of mild caramelized grain/bread. Subtle earthy notes.

The taste is of caramel with enough herbal/earthy hops to balance most of the sweetness.

On the thin (somewhat fizzy side), it's smooth and easy to drink. A malt-forward, standard/basic American Red Ale.

Look: Pours an orangish copper. The beer lacks carbonation. The head is small, disappears quickly, but laces nicely.
Smell: Citrusy/fruity.
Taste: There's a kind of hops that I like, like plums and mangoes. I really like it.
Overall: Definitely a quality beer and a nice change of pace, but I wouldn't want it regularly. Best red I've ever had though.
