Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 10-13-2003

Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

This beer pairs excellently with toffee, caramel apples, or your favorite horror flick.

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.
Moderate carbonation.

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!

Cheers!

Now listening to: Van Morrison - Astral Weeks

Thanks to Beechwood for bringing this one in!

A- Dark reddish brown color, thin white head
S- Very sweet malt and straight hop smell
T- This is a nice red taste. All the good qualities of a red, minus any blandness of some American reds of the past 20 years.
M- slightly syrupy, but carbonation helps this.
D- This is part of what I find to be the new school California Reds, with more bold hop to balance the malt. I find most of these to be very drinkable.
