The Beers of California
On-tap at the Bruery
I was able to allocate two bottles of Black Tuesday for myself through the new online system. Since I was stopping by to pick up my bottles, I figured I would have a couple of glasses.
A: Deep copper brown with reddish-orange hues. This brew is topped off with an off-white foamy head which sticks around leaving blankets of foam atop this beer.
S: Earthy with notes of pine needles, faint citrus, along with caramel and brown sugar sweetness.
T: Somewhat toasty with a good amount of bready maltiness. Earthy pine bitterness builds on the burnt sugary malt base to a warming alcohol finish with faint citrus highlights.
M: Good syrupy linger with moderate carbonation, medium mouthfeel and incredible reticular retention on the glass.
O: As straightforward as a Bruery beer can get, this red ale boasts wonderful hop bitterness built upon a standard red ale malt base. Although somwhat lacking in malt complexity this brew is a decent hoppy take on the American Red Ale.
