Notes / Commercial Description:
It wasn’t always his temperament, but they were the ones ... the ones that went looking for him after all. Today is a new day. Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale is a special blend of Maris Otter and other malts balance a resiny mix of Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops. Our hoppy imperial red ale is the beer of choice for imperial decisions.

A - wow, solid murkey brown amber body. Nice tan head with some serious retention. I mean the head is going nowhere! Nice lacing as well.

S - Just like a red ale should. Spicy and sweet

T - Sweet molasses and caramel and chocolate. Smokey, spicy and maybe a little bit of coffee. All of it cut by slight citrus but mostly pine and floral hops. Cherry and earthy hops in the aftertaste.

M - Medium/full body with moderate carbonation. Not too sticky, leaves the mouth clean.

O - Seriously great beer. Will definitely be picking up some Lobstahs again soon.

Small head but it leaves an excellent blanket of lace. The color is dark amber with lots of haze.

Upfront I get evergreen smelling hop. There's a bit of toasted malt in the background.

Toasty and very dry malt. Thick dark brown toast just shy of being burnt. Strong bitter hop kick--straight out bitterness without other "notes". Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Nearly astringent.
