This is my first review in many years...when I originally joined I was a casualty of the economic down turn....very happy to be back...
First off....the bottle of Thomas Creek River Falls Red Ale I am drinking from says it is 6.2 % abv...maybe the recipe has changed since the original was introduced...
This is a very balanced beer.
Open the bottle and a very light sweet scent of malt is present--only a small bit above subtle...
First sip is not that of many American Reds-malt, caramel then a boat load of bitterness...but rather sweet apple (pink lady or maybe gala) and nicely ripped pear. As I continue to take a few sips, the sweet-but light-malt sweetness comes through. There is enough bitterness to balance it out but I did not actually notice any bitterness until close to the end of the first bottle-which I did welcome. The second bottle I noticed a more prevalent array of malt and caramel sweetness accompanied by the bitterness, which is the trend that continued into the last bottle of the six pack-...what did you expect?-I never start a six pack w/o finishing all six.
I have had this beer several times-bottles and draft- and proud to rejoin this community with a winner:
Thomas Creek River Falls Red Ale is a really good beer...
solid 4 out of 5
