This beer pours a deep, dark red color and has a beautiful and very bubbly white head in my pint glass. The head vanished rather quickly and didn't leave much lacing on the glass as it receded. The aroma is generic grainy sweetness with healthy dose of alcohol shining through with a touch of hops in the aroma that balances things quite a bit. The flavor is a malty sweetness that tastes kind of thin part way through presence it has in your mouth. The flavor has a decent amount of bitterness in it and a touch of hops, but not as much maltiness as I was expecting. Most Red Ales, in my opinion, are never that malty, but I was expected more malt out of this guy. The flavor is actually very mild compared to what I was expecting. A mild malt profile with a decent bitterness and some booze. The MF is rather thin but very enjoyable. It is low on carbonation and very easy to drink.
This isn't one of the best Sierra Nevada products I have ever had, but it certainly isn't bad. For the relatively high ABV it is really easy to drink and quite light on the flavor. I would drink this again, but I wouldn't seek it out if it were a full time Sierra Nevada offering.
