Thanks to my Secret Santa Deconbluez for this one!! Vintage 09
Appears a hazy reddish brown with a lofty tan head that falls VERY slowly. Very nice lacing. I get a lot of malt on the nose. Caramel. Some hops but not what I would expect from the name. The taste is malt rich, earthy, caramel, some citrus, burnt sugar. Hop bite does balance nicely against the malt.
The beer is medium body with and active carbonation which is fine in structure. Pretty nice. I'm not a huge red ale fan but this is a good one that I wouldn't shy away from for sure.
Serving type: bottle
