I look for two things in an alcoholic beverage; great taste and a mellow buzz. I'm not interested in the "privilege" of paying for an over-priced beverage or something that requires that I develop a taste for it. The drinks that get high-marks with me simply taste good and are enjoyable.
Redd's Wicked Black Cherry Hard Ale is a tasty and refreshing drink that has enough kick to start to have an effect after about a can-and-a-half. The price is comparable to similar drinks, more expensive than beer but less expensive than a bottle of chap wine. Initially, the taste was reminiscent of cough syrup (though having the consistency of a soda). The cherry flavor and alcohol content are the culprits behind this initial impression, which quickly passes. All-in-all an enjoyable beverage.
