AROMA: Mild/neutral nose. Slight amber/red maltiness. Light red fruit notes too. 6/12
APPEARANCE: Fairly dark magenta/burgundy hue. Tan foam almost completely dissipates. 1/3
Subtle caramel malt flavor and sweetness; slight red fruit flavor
(cherry, plum). Mild earthy hop character, but low perceived bitterness.
No roasty or chocolate flavors. Nothing off-putting but nothing to
really enjoy here. 10/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Smooth and quaffable, with a dry aftertaste. Not refreshing. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Not a bad beer, just a boring one. Not sure why they would include this style in their lineup. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 25/50
