3.42/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip

L: Semi-opaque copper brown pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Falls fast... spotty lacing.

S: Malts and caramel. Toffee... and bread.

T/F: Fairly straightforward caramel malt flavor. Rich and bready... semi-sweet with hop bittering at the finish (not a lot of hop character.. just bitterness to round it out). Earthy... a little nutty. Medium in body... well carbonated. Finish is malty.

O: A fairly average red ale. Drinkable... kind of forgettable, but if you like the style it's certainly not a bad beer. Just not one I'd reach for.

CAN
Creamy tan over glowing ruby. 4
Candy corn! 4
Toast and caramel, cherry skin, carob, candy apple and no real hops. 3.75
Medium, creamy, chewy. 4

Big and satisfying. Reminds me of the 90s: no particular style (Scotch Ale, maybe?) Gets pretty cloying as it warms. Different but easy. 3.75

Station 33 Firehouse Red Ale had a medium, ivory-colored head, a hazy, rust-red appearance, bubble streams, and a bit of lacing left behind, on the glass. The aroma is of rich, bready, syrupy, brown bread crust, with caramel and sweet, nutty notes. Taste is of all those elements, with just a touch of balancing bitterness and nut shell. Mouthfeel is medium, and Station 33 Fireshouse Red Ale finishes medium dry.

Poured from a can into a Pittsburgh Penguins Pilsner glass I got for Christmas. Nice thick head on a reddish gold body, ok lacing. Subdued malty sweet smell. Taste is malty and slightly sweet. Not bad.

Look: Dark amber in color, very hazy, good head retention.
Smell: Slightly malty smell, with some sweetness.
Taste: Slightly sweet, but overall a very toasty malt taste. A bit bitter at the end, but not overpowering.
Feel: Very lightly carbonated, but still tingly on the tongue.
Overall: A delicious beer that is easy on the palate. I would definitely have this again.
