Philadelphia Rowhouse Red
I picked up a bottle of Philadelphia Rowhouse Red. The beer has a red copper color with almost no head. The aroma is malty and hints at hops. The taste is light and malty at first and finishes with a hop bite that tastes like pepper and toasted malts, but not a good taste of roasted malts. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. I thought that this was not a very good beer, and I wouldn't necessarily buy more of it. I think that the hop accent didn't accentuate the flavor but actually hindered it.
