This beer was sampled on-tap at the Illiana Mayfest on 5/26/2012.

Mustache Ride Red is an amber with roasted malt and very moderate hop bitterness, aged in a bourbon barrel with real vanilla beans. Poured in to the sampler glass, it was a dark color with hints of reddish hue. Vanilla and hints of honey are very present in the aroma. It is a sweet smell, not necessarily typical of an amber. The most notable impression of this beer is its smoothness. The vanilla lends itself well to the texture as it begins to give the impression of Dairy Queen soft serve. There is not much change in the after as it goes down like creme soda. Notes of the barrel aging are present, but are generally disguised by the vanilla beans. One would have difficulty being able to tell this is an amber, but maybe that is not a bad thing.
