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!

terrible beer. the head looks like the stuff that comes out at the end of your puke. Like a mix of bile and chyme. The smell is flat dead junky malt-laden hops. The taste is malty sweetness with a tinge of hops and a chemical caramelized tire aftertaste. Feel is pretty good. Slightly carbonated smooth silky with somewhat of a small hop fizz of carbonation. Dont recommend. Dont drink beer.

Poured a copper almost dark brown body with minimal head and lace. Aroma has notes of citric hops and a bready maltiness (not quite sweet or caramel). Balanced, medium bodied beer with a bready fullness that gives off a sharp citric hop taste, hint of grapefruit, along with caramel malts that add sweetness. Another simplistic yet solidly constructed beer from Alesmith that is a must try.

Deep ruby, rich, frothy cream colored head. Scent of resin, caramelized sugar, grass and strawberries. Taste of caramelized sugar, resin, sap, a hint of grapefruit rind and a sort of fruit punch flavor. Damn good.
