Kind of a boring beer. Malty. Flavorless.

This tastes a lot like Crescent City's Pilsener, except this has a more lemony finish and a slight bit more malt flavor. Red Stallion pours an amber color with a good head. Smell is appropriately hoppy, with some lemon zest mixed in. Taste is broadly in the Vienna style, I thought malt flavor wasn't present enough for full satisfaction. Tastes too close to their Pilsener for a strong distinction. This is easy and enjoyable enough to drink, I just wish it had more kick.

Clear, light amber, no head/no lace.

Malty aroma with no discernible hop--appropriate for a Vienna/Marzen, which is how this beer is listed (not a Red Ale).

Nice combination of malt and hop; spicy flavor and well-balanced. The aftertaste is mostly malt. Full body for the style.

This is my favorite offering from this tasting at Crescent City. The bartender told me that it was their signature beer. I agree.

Clear reddish copper in color with a 1" head that produced some light lacing through the drink. You can pick up some malt in the aroma. The malt is up front with this beer as any bitterness and fruitiness is far behind. Some faint nuttiness is also detectable.

The mouthfeel is smooth with a relatively clean and quite finish. Medium bodied, very light carbonation level. The flavor is slighlty off balanced to give it a better score in drinkability, and I was getting slightly bored by the end of the drink.

Pour clear, red in color with minimal head. Taste is toasted malt, caramel, and light grapefruit. Light bodied and sweet. Does not come together smoothly, and kinda think this one is a pass for me.

Pours a clean copper color, little head. Scent brings toasted and nutty grain, faint kiss of caramel, some earthy, leafy hops. Tastes follows scent, mild but flavorful. Perhaps undone by the body which just misses being crisp, lighter side of medium, lightly coating. Overall, a decent, although light flavored and bodied Vienna.

Clear, light amber beer with a thick, cream coloured head supported by constant, aggressive carbonation. Chunky lacing with rings of foam clinging to the glass. The aroma had a bit of C-hop to it, but was dominated by an acidic bite from the excessive carbonation. The flavour was mild, perhaps delicate, with a bit of fruit, malt and hops staying nicely balanced. Unfortunately, the bitterness became a bit dirty and harsh in the finish. Light bodied with too much carbonation, but the mouthfeel did stay fairly soft. Fairly easy to drink, but the carbonation was a serious problem.

A: Pours a clear dark red color. A white head rises to two fingers with good retention. Some sticky lace is left behind.
S: Buttery malt and diacetyl are up front. Bread and biscuit as well. Light spicy hops linger.
T: Follows the nose. Buttery with some diacetyl. Caramel and biscuit flavors.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A little watery, but not bad. Easy to drink. I can put a few back with ease.

Decent, but the diacetyl is a little to prevalent. It does not ruin the beer, but it is there. A small grip, and an overall good beer to quaff at the brewpub.

It isn't quite red, as the name might make you think. It was more of a dark golden color, with maybe a tinge of red to it. It had a big, strong head that had good lacing. The nose was somewhat weak, with no hops there at all. Some sweetness to the nose. The taste was a bit sweet. Not bad, but not real exciting either.
