Notes/Commercial Description:
It wasn’t always his temperament, but they were the ones ... the ones that went looking for him after all. Today is a new day. Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale is a special blend of Maris Otter and other malts balance a resiny mix of Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops. Our hoppy imperial red ale is the beer of choice for imperial decisions.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a large dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains rich caramelized malts, floral hops and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and a little citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering hops presence for the style comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very nice flavorful beer to drink for a long time.

A - wow, solid murkey brown amber body. Nice tan head with some serious retention. I mean the head is going nowhere! Nice lacing as well.

S - Just like a red ale should. Spicy and sweet

T - Sweet molasses and caramel and chocolate. Smokey, spicy and maybe a little bit of coffee. All of it cut by slight citrus but mostly pine and floral hops. Cherry and earthy hops in the aftertaste.

M - Medium/full body with moderate carbonation. Not too sticky, leaves the mouth clean.

O - Seriously great beer. Will definitely be picking up some Lobstahs again soon.
