Notes/Commercial Description:
Start the car. The lights are about to turn amber. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Past the alley where thieves and pimps sell corporate brews and good men soak it up like vermin, blissful in their ignorance. Past the jackhammers who want their three and a half percent. Keep going. Towards that golden orb, the size of Zeus’s ass, that hovers over this crazy town. Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink amber, and drive like a bastard towards that saintly light.

My second experience with what has certainly come to be a favorite brewery of mine. This is a red ale turned up to 11. It manages to be quite hoppy while at the same time keeping a strong malt flavor as well. It pairs excellently with the assortment of meats and cheeses available as part of the tasty pseudo-ploughman's lunch platter available at their Edinburgh location as well as with their punk IPA (I had both on tap that day for the first time and definitely not the last as rumor has it that they are opening several locations on this side of the pond next year). Altogether an excellent beer which I will be regularly buying in bottled form until such time as I can find it on tap again either in Scotland or the States.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a beautiful amber color forming a medium bubbled beige head. Good retention and some lingering thin lacings left in the glass

S: Sweet caramel malts mixed with a delicious grassy, flowery and a bit pinny American style hops. A bit fruity and some notes of caramel

T: Slight sweet upfront. Caramel malts, toffee followed by a mild hoppy bitterness. Again, very flowery, grassy and pinny. Yeasts are also American style, I would dare to say that they've used US-05 American Yeasts

M: Light body and good carbonation. Aftertaste is a mix of caramel malts and grassy hops

O: Great drinkability. Lovely American Pale Ale style made in Scotland! Hooray for Brewdog
