Big Red Ale

12 oz single, Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Very good color on the pour with a lovely, dark red/mahogany color and a nice head that has a toffee colored hue. Not much retention or lace.
Carbonation produces some streaming bubbles.
Nose has a bunch of quite seriously sweet malts.
The tastes highlight and showcase the malts even more than the nose would suggest. The beer is really quite sweet and lacks much of a typical dry finish that is often associated with the style. As the beer warms and as I drink more, the sweetness seems to subside to give more bitterness, but the beer never gets aggressive.
Well, not much to report here, but a nice beer that I could drink a couple of without too much trouble.
