Did not like this. Tastes more like a lager than anything else, complete with throat burn. No hops or flavors or anything interesting. Think of the beer you drank in college when you had no cash. That's it!

Bottle best by 12/9/16. Oops. DFH tulip.

A: pours a clear dark red/Amber with 1 finger frothy light beige head that dissipates quickly to a thick ring of bubbles around the edge. Little visible carb to speak of.

S: toasted Amber ale malts, yummmm! Fresh black cherries and overripe bananas. Sweet.

T: first impression is dry and slightly hoppy/green. Mid palate is surprisingly crisp, dry, and toasty. Finish starts to turn malty, then into a woodsy bitterness with characteristic red ale toastiness.

M: solidly midweight, pretty dry and slightly astringent.

O: I have seen this on shelves, and it intrigued me. I am a fan of red ales, and this does not disappoint - toasty with body, but not excessively sweet. Very drinkable and I can see this pairing very well with food. Says a lot, given this was two weeks out of date and the store didn't have it refrigerated. Will bring a sixer back next time I visit.
