Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: caplana on 10-31-2013

Rollin Dirty Red Ale, our Irish-style Ale possesses a deep amber color. It displays a forward caramel aroma with hints of chocolate and roasted nuts. English hop varietals lend a floral to herbal bitterness which helps to round the carmel sweetness and lend some crispness to this year round ale.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a crystal clear very dark garnet hue with a one finger light tan head that faded quickly to leave a thin thin blanket and creamy halo.

S - Aromas of sweet malts, crackers/bread, faint spices.

T - Taste is more of the nose, caramel malts, cracker/bread, sweetness, faint spice notes, slight metallic taste, older earthy like hops. Lingering cloy sweet finish (though the beer itself is not cloy).

M - Mouthfeel is lightly bodies, medium carbonation. The aftertaste/finish though is just bad.

O- Overall, this just didnt do it for me at all. As average as it may have been, the aftertaste and lingering stickiness just..yeah...drain pour.

-can spiegelau ipa glass. Brewed and canned by Cigar City.

A: Deep burgundy coloring with a translucent quality and macro-effervesce. Dirty tan head, slight in size and retention. Clean window dressing.

S: Scotchy caramel aroma, followed by some light fresh chocolate malt. Fresh flowers, nice awareness and staying power.

T: Scotchy caramel flavor, slightly sweet upfront, dried honey malt, toffee, dry flowery citrus and toasty speciality grains. Spicy hops interject with some lemony and woodsy notes, cypress and pine, meeting sweetly toasted grains, and a bit of spicy alcohol on the finish.

M: Malty full body, syrupy texture, good level of carbonation.

O: Overall sweetly toasted backing with an american amber citrusy flower hops. Alcohol is nicely balanced. Drinks like a cross between an american amber and scotch ale.

A: The beer is clear brownish red in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts, toasted malts and toffee are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather malty and is mostly filled with flavors of caramel malts and toffee. Slight bits of tea are noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a lot maltier compared to other beers that I've had in the style.

Serving type: can

Acquired from Cuzco so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, honey, tea and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, honey and tea. Then a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is decent for the style and provides a good balance. There’s a little bit of chocolate in the background. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to pound down for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Good looking beer, dark red, probably call it burgundy. Decent head with strong lacing on the glass. Strong malty aroma, some caramel and slight roast. Flavor was muted, I was hoping for more following the aroma, but certainly not bad. Decent feel, not exactly creamy but certainly not thin. Overall this is a pretty good beer, not sure why it is getting banged so hard in the ratings. Not special, but good.

Its an unexciting and under appreciated style, but I thought it was pretty tasty and had gery high drinkability. But I get it, it's not an ipa or barrel aged stout, so it will get very little love on this site.
