BEER INFO

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.66%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

This beer pairs excellently with toffee, caramel apples, or your favorite horror flick.

Dark fruity initial taste. Not really my beer

It's just not a particularly great beer. I also drank it a couple weeks ago and can't really write a full review. I don't see why I should have to justify why I think a beer is average.

Not the best red I've had bit very drinkable. It's a little on the lighter side for a red and has kind of a fruity taste to it. Not bad but not the best either.

Sessionable, sweet malts are nicely balanced by bitter hops.

Served on-draught into a 4 oz plastic taster cup at Alesmith's taproom. They really have to get rid of the whole plastic cup system; it's a disgrace. Cost was $2.00.

A: Pours a half finger khaki colour head of great cream, good thickness, and smooth rolling foam. Retention is fair. Good lacing. Colour is a dark chestnut red. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Floral hops, with some citrus. Clean malts. Caramelization. Toasted malt. An appealing aroma of moderate strength.

T: Floral hops and clean malts. Caramel. Toasted malt. Balanced and enjoyable. Amber malts. I like it, but it does leave something to be desired in terms of complexity. Not much going on here considering the brewery.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Perfect thickness. Suits the flavour well. Good carbonation.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Well priced. I'd have it again, preferably from a bottle. Definitely worth a try. A solid seasonal from Alesmith, but not up to par with most of their other offerings.
