Growler purchase from Breeze In, Lemon Creek (Juneau, AK)
Into a pint glass:
A: dark red/almost brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that rises just a bit and then dies within a minute leaving some adequate foamy clingy lacing in its wake, body is somewhat clear around the edges but no carbonation is seen rising
S: bitter hops (piney) start up front, and as it warms, a nice light sense of caramel malts enter in but ever so delicately
T: bittersweet through the hops and malts combinely ever so nicely - mainly in a piney sort of fashion, mainly a sweet aftertaste, and a somewhat dry bitter finish
M: light to medium, somewhat sessionable and could go pretty well with its respected food, carbonation seems fairly smooth for an American Red/Amber Ale, good for me
O: a nicely done hoppy Amerrican Red Ale with a darker body than most reds I've had, well done Alaskan, well worthy of having again and next time definitely would have with its respected food.
Serving type: growler
