Great appearance here, red, good clarity, over an inch of white head on it. Solid artwork.
Aroma hit you with all the red ale smells, for better and worse, traditionally driven, not all that hoppy.

Body is lighter than the appearance would lead you to believe, light hops. Sweet like oktoberfest. A decent beer that is underhopped for today's needs.

It's a little on the light side for a red ale but still has a good amount of flavor. it's not the best red ale i've ever had but one i would drink again.

T: just like the scent but more explosive

M: sweet but bitter taste lingers, kinda tingly if you pay close attention

Best by 12/14/15. 5.2% ABV per the label.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, fruit, and metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that smells pretty good, but there is a metallic aspect in the taste that makes this one a bit hard to drink much of.

Serving type: can.

Decent, but average amber ale. Pours amber (duh!) with thin white head, and sparse carbonation. Initial aroma of IPA, muted with some malt. Taste is hops, malt, mouth feel is about right.

Small head with little retention. Hazy apple juice color. Very little smell but has a small hop presence with some fruity notes. Taste is pretty average. Malty sweetness with a small amount of hops, a tad yeasty. Pretty uninteresting beer to be honest.
