DESCRIPTION

Red ales are making a come back.  A dry-hopped amber, featuring a brewer’s blend of stewed and roasted malt for a crimson ale, smooth on the palate, yet powerful enough to awaken the senses.  This Red Ale pours a garnet, deep copper with off-white foam. Toasted malts come forward in the aroma, as well as herbal notes from old-world dry hops. It is big bodied, moderately bitter, and leaves a hint of sweetness after drinking.

STYLE NOTES

Red Ale

More malty and less hops in these ales. Known for flavors and aromas of caramel and toffee and roasted grains. Typically Irish in nature but the American red ale styles are innovative with different hop characteristics.
