Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: CortexBomb on 03-21-2008

"A rich lustrous dark red London Ale. Rich malt complexities lending notes of toasted caramel, raisins, toffee, and slight roast chocolate. Very light hop additions let the true malt characters promenade throughout the tasting enjoyment this beer offers."

A - Pours a dark reddish-brown with a one-finger off-white head. Lots of soapy lacing.

S - Faint aromas of caramel, toffee, and bread.

T - The flavors follow the nose. Malty with flavors of caramel, toffee, biscuit, and some light dark fruits. The finish has a faint earthy ho bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish.

O - A nice easy drinking Red Ale. Would definetly drink again.
