Griffon Red Ale from McAuslan Brewing review but Kevofficiel.
The look of it is more on the brown side than the red one. Really surprising. Nice carbonation with 1 finger of head that stays for a while but then disappear.
The smell is nice but it could come with more parfum with some maybe chocolate.
About the taste, Im a bit disappointed. I think it's about the finish that I didn t really like it. I don t think this is better than a Boreale Rousse or a Belle Gueule Rousse. But the Griffon Red Ale does the job. The price is a bit high.
So overall, would I recommend it ? To be honest with you I will say NO. Don't take me wrong this is not a bad beer at all but the reason why I say No its because there is much better for the same price here in Quebec. For me if I had the choice with a Boreale Rousse or even a Belle Gueulle I will go with those but not with the Griffon Rousse. But if you had the chance to try, well give it a try, its a nice beer but overall there is much better.
