    Tonight I drank this for the first time. It was about 2 weeks in the bottle. It had an encouraging sound when I opened the bottle as all the co2 rushed out. I poured it into my good mug; it had a nice red-cooper-brown color with a think snow white head. It had a subtle hint of hops and a good malty aroma. You could tell it was a new beer as soon as you tasted it. The flavors had not completely melded, and had a distinctive hop taste (more of what would be in a pale ale rather then a red ale). I was amazed; when i started the beer it had a nice head and good head retention.

    I’m gonna let this one rest for another month or so, but All in all another successful beer!
