Notes/Commercial Description:
The creation of Flambeau Red starts with the selection of seven unique malts, to give a complex profile which is the foundation of this seasonal ale. Complemented by the barrage of three hop varieties, this is one incredibly well balanced American style red ale. The extreme depth of flavors are our focus, while the American ale yeast used for fermentation allows them to pop on the canvas that is Flambeau Red. The result of NOLA’s latest seasonal brew is one incendiary beer, as bright and warm as the keepers of the flame that light the parade route during Mardi Gras nights.

On tap at Walk Ons in Lafayette, LA.

A: Pours a clear dark reddish/brown color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Toasted malts, baked bread, lingering hoppy bitterness. Not a lot of depth, but enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose with a nice toasted malt flavor. Bread and biscuit. Lingering hops. Standard, but enjoyable.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp carbonation, but a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink. I put back several without a thought.

Enjoyable and easy to drink. Nothing too exciting, but something to enjoy and nothing to turn down.

Serving type: on-tap
