BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company (NOLA)
Louisiana, United States
nolabrewing.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
The creation of Flambeau Red starts with the selection of seven unique malts, to give a complex profile which is the foundation of this seasonal ale. Complemented by the barrage of three hop varieties, this is one incredibly well balanced American style red ale. The extreme depth of flavors are our focus, while the American ale yeast used for fermentation allows them to pop on the canvas that is Flambeau Red. The result of NOLA’s latest seasonal brew is one incendiary beer, as bright and warm as the keepers of the flame that light the parade route during Mardi Gras nights.

Had it fresh in the brewery.
Dark copper color with a thick beige head with good retention and leaving lots of laces.
Medium strength aroma with notes of cocoa, nice spices and roasted malts.
Similarly, flavor with notes of cocoa, a bit of each that sum together to the overall beer: citrus, earthy and piney hops, spices, American Amber/Red yeast and caramels. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Pleasant American Red ale with a nice choice of hops that balances with some mild cocoa and spicy notes. Very easy to drink.
