Taps Red Ale

I wanted to try a beer from Taps during my trip to Istanbul. We were walking around Kadıköy, when I noticed that the Rock Pub  advertised Taps beer on their beer board. I inquired about what they had to offer and it was the Kölsch, amber ale or Rauchbier. It was an easy decision for me to try the amber ale. I was a little disappointed when I was handed a bottle with no glass but didn't figure this was the kind of place that would understand my delicate sensibilities. I couldn't get much aroma from sniffing the top of the bottle. The flavor was a pleasant caramel and grain mix. It was an easy drinking beer and had a decently full body for being only 4%. I can't say I was super impressed with this beer, but it was certainly decent.

Overall: 7/10

Hi, I'm Colin, I love a good hoppy IPA, but I can find immense enjoyment in a solid session beer, imperial stout, quadrupel or a nostalgic beer from my past.
