BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States
thebruery.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Imperial Loakal Red is just what you expect, a bigger, maltier, more intense version of our hoppy, oaky red ale. Coming in at nearly double the abv of regular Loakal Red, this beer retains the essence of the base beer with notes of citrus, vanilla and oak, but brings it all to that next level. Definitely a great one to share with friends.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep red. Big head. Off white foam. Lots of surface foam.

Smell - Hoppy and a bucket of caramel. Musty and citrus hops.

Taste - Really caramelly. Hops come second. Citrus. Kinda reminiscent of a barleywine. Musty and slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium carbonation. Slight bitterness.

Overall - Imperial reds just aren't that exciting. This is very imperial and very unexciting. I can't disagree that it's well made though.
