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.

Sessionable, sweet malts are nicely balanced by bitter hops.

It will be sad to see this one go until next year. Great red ale with the right amount of hops. Super smooth even with those hops.

Poured from the bottle into a stemless wine glass.

Deep red amber, dark brown on the outside, with a big ruby darkness to it. Head is creamy tan, with three fingers and settling down to a half finger head.

Good simple caramel aroma. Mild toast with a solid thick sweetness. Mild hop action, but pretty indistinct and not particularly obvious. Definitely amber solid.

Palate comes pretty straight forward and good for an amber. Caramel sweetness with a nice thick coating. Mild hints of pine astringency on the finish to match. Good coating with a bit of resin quality. Not really so much citrus on the nose that the bottle hints at.

It's a solid straightforward amber, but lacks much of the West coast hop character that Alesmith is definitely know for. Not an old beer either, but a solid amber.

Kind of like Justin Turner, this bad boy may just be "The Red Dream." Super lush - with a hint of juice - caramel flavors burst at every olfactory hole you have and coat your mouth like a volcanic burst of hoppy/malt goodness. Raul is feelin this like a deep tissue with hot stones. Raul is feelin' this like a Yasiel Puig walk off...

Oh my.
