DESCRIPTION

Malt forward, well balanced Amber Ale with caramel and butterscotch notes.

 

 

 

 

 

Fall Colors: Red is an American Amber dripping in all the delicious, malt-forward character that makes fall beers so delightful as the seasons change.  Roasted specialty malts are used here in great abundance to create a deep red color with butterscotch, caramel, and toasty tones. Crimson in color with a soft offwhite head and tight lacing on the glass, this beer is balanced by refreshing Cascade hops to help accentuate the malt profile.

Our Fall Colors series is something we wanted to put together to pay to honor the changing fall weather, and colors.  Beer and Fall seem to be inextricably linked. Be it the beginning of the traditional brewing season, the harvest, colors of leaves, and the way a quality beer looks in your glass.  So sit down and enjoy that refreshing crispness in the air, and appreciate the Fall Colors.   

Amber Ales are an extremely versatile style that can pair up with many things quite elegantly.  For this brew, we recommend a hearty steak pot pie with carrots, peas, potato and extra thick gravy. Aged gouda is a great cheese to pair as it will pick up some of the delicious nutty and caramel tones that this brew displays. For the sweeter side, a nice healthy slice of apple crumble with a caramel drizzle will make an impressive showing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STYLE NOTES

AMERICAN AMBER ALE

A malt-focused beer with a hoppiness that runs the range from low to high. Well balanced, typically with a caramel flavor and good body. Moderate to high hop flavor with characteristics typical of American or New World hop varieties (citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, or melon). A citrusy hop character is common, but not required. Malt flavors are moderate to strong, and usually, show an initial malty sweetness followed by a moderate caramel flavor (and sometimes other character malts in lesser amounts). Malt and hop bitterness are usually balanced and mutually supportive but can vary either way. Fruity esters can be moderate to none. Caramel sweetness and hop flavor/bitterness can linger somewhat into the medium to full finish.
