It’s always nice to try a new beer and a new brewery from my home state of Ohio. From Akron, this is Ohio Brewing Cardinal Ale.
Described as an Irish Red, the white head is tenacious. The color is more orange than red, however.Toasted malt and light hops come through in the nose. It’s light and crisp, but the flavor is a little off. It’s sour and just plain doesn’t taste right.
Based on reviews I’m seeing elsewhere, and some of the sediment I’m seeing in the glass, I think I’ve got a bad bottle. At least I hope so. Not a great first try for Ohio Brewing for me, but I will certainly give them another shot.
