3.53/5 rDev -13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On-tap at the Beachwood BBQ,
A: Pours a deep crismon/maroon/mauve red with a small white head leaving solid lacing.
S: Sweet malts, with a solid hop character, straight up red ale smell.
T: Taste is really sweet initially, certainly more than its sister brew My Bloody Valentine. The sweetness dies down a bit after a while leaving a tasty hop bitterness of pine and grass clippings.
M: Soft carbonation, overall medium body, with a treacle sweetness in the finish.
D: I liked this one from Alesmith, but I thought it would be better if it was a tad drier, still a nice Halloween brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Ruby red color where light passes easily through it. Lasting beige head that leaves plenty of streaky lace on the glass.
Smells of crystal malt--like caramel. Good balancing hop, but not distinctive.
Dry, caramelized malt. Reminds me of deeply toasted bread. Strong hop presence, like hot peppers. Quite spritzy with a below-average level of body.

22oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
Deep red with 2 fingers of light tan head. Good retention and clarity. Light-moderate carbonation.
Toffee, caramel. grapefruit and pine.
Toffee and caramel maltiness with hints of toast and a subtle earthiness. Notes of grapefruit and pine. Perhaps some touches of orange citrus.
Medium bodied, clean and smooth.
A decent Red Ale. I think I prefer My Bloody Valentine to this one.

Stopped by the brewery, which can be rather difficult because of tasting/growler filling hours and San D traffic. Barely made it before closing.
Anyways picked a growler of the Evil Dead Red.
Poured an almost opaque, dark, blood-red color.
Thick, foamy, tan head, nice lacing on my tulip glass.
It has a sweet malt smell to it, a little fruity. Nice light hop aroma.
A little sweet.
Rich malt taste, mild on the palate.
A mildly bitter hop finish with a little nutty flavor in there.
Rather smooth beer, very drinkable. Check out Alesmith!
