On tap at the pub – Long Beach, CA
Notes taken from 06/03/14 – Taster from flight

A: Light crimson color that actually takes on more brownish hues with some red tones than anything. Really fine clarity to this one. Thin layer of khaki cream holds firmly eventually slipping out to a mere crown. Tiny dots and a few splashes of lace decorate the glass on the way down.

S: Malty biscuit is pronounced with some light toffee and more toasted bread than anything else here. I get some soft underpins of earthy hops to the nose but this is more about the malts. Very fresh clean aromas I will add.

T: Toasted bread and biscuit predominantly with some subtle toffee like sweetness. Earthy hops are present with a very mild orange citrus character to it. There is a low level of actual bitterness to the beer and no alcohol to report in flavor. Nice dryness towards the finish. Well balanced and quite drinkable but a bit run of the mill for me.

M: The mouth feel is light to moderate with a nice creamy texture to it. There is a low amount of actual bitterness on the palate and the beer finishes with a nice drying sensation. Very clean overall.

D: This is a more traditional malt forward red. And I must say it is well balanced which makes for a nice sessions but I guess I was just hoping for a the amped up American style Red here. Nothing against it or the traditional style but Beachwood makes such awesome hoppy beers here that the potential is there for something much more killer. Glad I only opted for a taster.

Too sweet syrupy taste at start.
Amber clear. Head thin but good. Lacing good. Bitter on end of palate. Smell malts but not much. Very slight smell. Taste smooth. Mild bitter. Sweet.
Moderate carbonation.

Shared a taster on-tap as past of a flight at the brewery in May 2013; Beachwood BBQ & Brewing, Long Beach, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear dark red with a beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is very malty with citrus zest and subtle citrus fruit aromas. Taste is the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink.
