The beer was served at a good temperature: cool but not cold. Dark reddish amber with a suggestion of brown. A few small chunky floaters were present in the bottom one-third of the glass. The head was pale beige in color and was small after a gentle pour. It melted fairly quickly and left little lace.
The low intensity nose was sweet and malty. The flavor was enjoyable and consisted of sweetish caramel malt with a bit of fruitiness. A mild bitterness snuck in just before the short finish.
The body/mouthfeel was merely okay. Like the rest of the brewpub beers that I've had, it seemed a little thin. Do brewpubs around here add 10-15% water to their beer? I feel the alcohol just as much, but the flavor seems watered down.
Dry Hop Red Ale is pretty good beer, but it doesn't really stand out from the crowd.
