California, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
An American amber ale rich in malt-forward flavors with a tinge of strawberry in the nose and tail. Our reincarnation of a classic American ale, gleaming ruby red - a color so red as to inspire the name - from the addition of delicately caramelized British rye malt.

This is a gusher, oozing out of the bottle but after it settles down it pours hazy red under a 2” light tan head that slowly dissipates. The nose is rye spice, dark sugars with some light caramel. The palate begins with fruit with some hard candy and suggestions of root beer in the background and finishes with a bitter emphasis that is not quite citrus rind over some grain falvors. It dries on the finish and leaves a long lingering bitter aftertaste. The beer has a firm bitter emphasis but is balanced by the underlying sweetness. While big, the bitterness is pleasant and not harsh. It is very creamy with fine soft carbonation. Medium full body with above average carbonation.

Pours amber with a half inch head. Poor glass so I couldn't tell the lace retention.

Smells like spicy rye, caramel, citrus and pine.

The taste follows suit. Mouth is smooth an moderatly thick.

Very drinkable, wish I had more space to compose this review. Had at the Lagunitas Beer Circus. Hope they bottle and ship this out soon!
