The Great God of Fun Red Ale by The Booth Brewing

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20ChadPolenz (1774) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2017

DOB: 3/13/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Ale

AROMA: Slightly nutty malty aroma with some earthy/piney hops as well. Nose is a mild overall. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Deep amber to copper proper. Mostly clear. Small, off-white foam never evaporates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Low to moderate amber maltiness with a nutty/earthy flavor. Not especially sweet, but more malty than hoppy. Gentle hop bitterness at the apex is slightly dry with an earthy/piney flavor. Faint mineral or metallic sensation in the aftertaste. 9/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and matching carbonation. Feels a bit thin and flat; more tepid than crisp. Finishes fairly clean. Seems much too light for 5% ABV. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: More mild than bad. It’s just not a good example of the style. 4/10
