I think their color grading is off, those middle beers are not intense red like that.

I think that may have to do with:
1) the condensation on the glass
2) the placement of the light in relation to the liquid

But yeah, it looks a bit too bright. The hues on the outer left edges of the red group is a better illustration. You kind of have to stare to see through the water droplets on the outside.

The last time I saw an actual red beer was in Nebraska, Empyrean brewing, I think. "Burning Skye Scottish Ale. It was red.... in 2002.

Drove through Nebraska again a couple years ago, hit the brewery. It's no longer red... reddish brown. Rumors are they used to use food coloring.

I looked into brewing a red beer when I started brewing... "smoked grains" don't get it done. I saw suggestions to use food coloring. I don't consider that kind of cheating to be true red beer.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

You obviously don't have enough iron in your water.
