I had this on-tap at 4 Hands on a recent trip to St. Louis and before a Cardinal ballgame.

A: Quite possible the most unusual color I've ever seen in a red. It poured an EXTREMELY saturate orange-crimson color (almost as if blood had been mixed in), with a finger or so foamy, dense head.

S: Very floral and fruity, but not a hop bomb by any stretch of the imagination.

T: Very fresh fruity, and with a really nice (and memorable) white pepper notes. Very unusual indeed!

M: Creamy and then some, with sort of a grainy, cake batter-like thickness, and ridiculous lacing.

O: While this was a bit more understated that the initial appearance dictated, this was pretty remarkable.

Purchased at The Dubliner in St. Louis.

A. A very pretty beer with a ruby. Leaves a very nice tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

S. A nice hoppy aroma that combines floral and citrus scents with a faint backdrop of pine.

T. Definitely a nice hop taste that is very crisp. Finishes with a nice floral finish.

O. A very enjoyable beer for hop-heads.

750ml bottle that I was very lucky to get from the Mike at STL Hops. He had this hand bottled (along with two others from 4 Hands) just for me. Very much appreciated.

Pours a very nice coppery red color with a good amount head. The aroma is like opening a package of hops to brew - dank, sticky hops. Some bready sweetness works its way in as well.

Taste starts with a hit of bitterness from the hops, followed by a caramel sweetness that goes well with the hops. The hops attack again - grapefruit, pine, and resin. I know this is called a red ale, but the hops are higher than usual for the style.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side and carbonation is a little light. That might be due to the fact that this is one of the very first bottles of this beer.

I've got two more bottles of 4 Hands beer and I'm very much looking forward to them after this one. Great brew.

It's odd with 4 Hands BC - we get distribution here in PA, but it is scattered to the point that I CAN find some in PHL, some in LNC & still others were returnees with me from CHI. I dig the graphics on the CANs & I am anxious to CANduct a horizontal tasting/review of their CANned beers. When it is over, if you know of a CAN of theirs that I missed, let me know.

From the CAN: "Food Pairings [:] Sharp Cheddar - Grilled Beef"; "Red Ale Brewed with Centennial Hops".

Upon Crack!ing the CAN open, I began to get some slow foaming up through the vent. I let it go for a little while, but when it seemed unabating, I did a small Glug to allow it room to settle. Even a gentle Glug brought forth a finger of foamy, tawny head with good retention. The sticky lacing that was left in its wake was amazing to look at. Color was Deep Amber/Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was a resinous, sticky mélange of honey, pine tar, grapefruit, breadiness and a fresh-picked earthiness. My mouth began to water uncontrollably. Mouthfeel was medium to full, probably due to the immense amount of carbonation. Taste was slightly spicy in terms of its bitterness, but also kind of minty, underlain by a light citrusiness. It really mirrored the nose in that there was a lot of flavor jammed into it. Finish was dry, spicy, lightly minty. Not only could I drink this on a regular basis, but now my curiosity is really piqued as to drinking it with sharp Cheddar cheese. What a beer!
