BEER INFO

Brewed by:
AleSmith Brewing Company
California, United States
alesmith.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.66%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

L: Pours bright chestnut with ruby highlights producing a ¼” off white foam cap that quickly dissipates.
S: Fruit, light malt, dark sugars, faint fig and raisin.
T: Spicy with coffee, dark dried fruit, a light malty sweetness up front that dries on the finish. Some caramel and toast with a touch of grainy astringency on the finish. The malt is medium high with a medium to medium high dark chocolate bitterness. Well balanced.

O: A very drinkable big beer.
