2.43/5  rDev -39.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - Beautiful ruby red, black cherry color. Nice 1 1/2 inch off white head.

S - Very subtle, mild malt, bread, a tad of hops, toffee notes are in there and some darker fruits like cherries, plum, a molasses kind of tone.

T - For being 6.66% the malt is pretty apparent. A slight biscuit tone, darker fruits as the note implies, mild cherry, plum, molasses. Almost no hops.

M - Very light to medium body. Nice carbonation, very oily going down. This lingering finish is weird.

O - This is nothing like Evil Dead, not in any way. Evil Dead is bold, this is it's preteen cousin. I did not care for it. I can get the same taste from generic brands. Waste of $5.00

bottle date 1/1/2014,
pours a deep dark chestnut with a thick khaki head. Real mysterious and pretty

nose- sticky sweet caramel with a big hoppy bouquet of fresh flowers, lush vanilla and orange zest. Very aromatic, fragrant, fantastic to sniff

taste- follows with big sweet, rich, and sticky caramel malt, orange creamcicle with orange and vanilla, light wood; hops come through with floral and citrus presence. The back of the palate is left with burnt caramel and soft floral notes

feel- pretty medium-heavy bodied, sticky, sweet, candy-like

another fantastic hoppy red ale from Alesmith, very fragrant and lush. I may not like as much as Evil Dead Red or Yulesmith, but this is awesome.

cheers

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" reddish tan head over the slightly cloudy bright red brew. Head bubbles burst gradually, with sticky lacing. Aroma is malt and piney hops.

Taste starts sweet, cherries in the middle, with moderately bitter close. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. Cherry starts to get a bit old as time passes, but a good brew overall.

Great as a red ale. Really good hoppiness and not overdone, with chocolate in the secondary to give it an added dimension. Very good drinkability. Bottle from Campone's, well worth the $12 and email to keep aside for me.Hoppier than its scent. Above average mouthfeel.

A - Pours a subdued red mahogany with brown highlights. Two finger light tan head.

S - Citrus hoppy goodness with light caramel malts. I'm not picking up the cocoa/chocolate notes though.

T - Good malt base with caramel/toffee entwined. I'm picking up cocoa midway through then it fades into a bitter citrus ending.

M - Creamy and medium carbonation with medium body.

O - An above average red ale that delivers on all fronts.

Bomber split with friends. Big thanks to BA anotherjoe for gifting me with as an extra in a recent box exchange. The brew appears a mahogany to burnt amber color with a finger of khaki head. A full wall of webby lace sticks to the glass.

The aromatics are quite fruited seemingly from a mixture if alcohol notes and hops. A mild chocolate note is present before more of an herbal to dank backing of more hop character.

The flavor of this brew suggests raw cacao or green nib quality with a fruity alcohol and floral hop aspect just like the aroma suggests. Some toasty grain to molasses persists into the aftertaste. Overall not bad.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Such a strange and unique combination of characteristics but decent enough to pay a visit to if given the opportunity. I am appreciative of the chance to try this but I probably would not have it again if I had other options available.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

We pour a brew of rich mahogany brown that lets up maroon hues around the edges. It holds a two and a half finger tall head of half creamy, half massive light brown bubbles. This retains excellently, leaving spidery lacing down the sides of the glass. There is a moderate haze noted, with intermittent waves of microsediment shimmering throughout. Carbonation appears moderate. The nose fills with a bouquet of aromas that, appropriately, pair with Valentine’s Day. The malts show a mix of caramel and lightly roasted and chalky chocolates, while the hops are earthy, floral, and resiny. Cutting sweetness comes in the form of fresh wild strawberries and heavy creamer, while bitterness and depth comes from medicinal phenols, peppery booze, baker’s yeast, singed toastiness, and lemon rind. Our first impression is that this beer is heavily malt forward and slightly lighter in flavoring than the aroma puts on. As we sip, sweetly toasted caramel malts, lemony citric hops, sugary candy corn, raw peppercorns, almond nuttiness, coiny metallics, and tannic black teas start things off. The peak shows an enhanced pucker to the hops, with soap predominating. Otherwise the swallow fills with peppery alcohol, a deepening of the malts to roasty chocolates, and lemon zest. Bright black cherry sweetness and burnt strawberry stems mark the transition to the finish, where toasted pale and caramel malts, lightly roasted chocolate malts, coconut smoothness, white sugar, and those aromatic echoes of medicinal phenols mix for the final blend. The aftertaste breathes of chalky caramel and chocolate malts, dried yeast, bittered cocoa, peppery booze, dark cherry syrups, warmed buttery toast, metallics, citric hops and brewer’s yeast. The body is heartily medium, and the carbonation is medium to high. Each sip gives beautifully soft slurp, froth, cream, smack, and gentle pop. The mouth is cooled and richly coated, with light metallic and chalky astringency to the palate and tongue. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was the interesting blend through the aroma, and the gorgeous mouthfeel. The initial nose gives big fruitiness to match the equally as big shoes of the grain bill and the deep, spicy hoppiness. Between the chocolate and the strawberries it actually did feel oddly appropriate for the holiday. The flavoring came nicely, but much of the hoppiness was lost between the massive overhaul of caramel, chocolate, roast, and toast through the grain. This also made room for the sweetness to peak just a bit too much by the end of the sip. More than making up for it was the feel, which gave silky, creamy softness to each hit from the glass. This is a tasty, well executed beer, and it seems to not only fit the style, but fit well within the ranks and idiosyncrasies of the brewery.

Pours a dark amber/nearly garnet color with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Almost red enough to be blood.

Lots of citrus to greet the nose. It's followed by notes of caramel and/or toffee. I couldn't detect the cocoa mentioned on the label.

Strong and flavorful with a great mix of citrus hops, toffee, caramel and perhaps a bit of cocoa in the malt body only. Drinks more like an american strong ale. ABV is a reasonable 6.66%. Sweet!

Lingering citrus hops and caramel embody the mouthfeel. I've noticed that way back in the throat, the chocolate notes from the malt show up. Very nice touch!

I find this to be an excellent beer, worth a shot if you're into stronger amber ales, despite the fact that the ABV is only 6.66%.

From: Binny's, Champaign, IL
Date: None, but released for Valentine's Day
Glass: Tulip

With its strong citrus, pine, and bitter hop characters, Alesmith's My Bloody Valentine serves as a concept to mock the sweet, chocolate typical-ness one expects on that "holiday." Not surprisingly, given Alesmith's generally excellent brewing skills, the beer is a success, melding both thought and taste into a "beer expression" that works very well together. And a $6 bomber? Well, that's cheap these days...

Pours a 3cm tall head of foam that is light tan in color and composed of small-sized bubbles. Retention is above average, the head lasting a few minutes in its gradual decline to a thick ring around the glass and some small, scattered islands of wispy foam atop the body of the beer. Excellent lacing left along the sides of the glass: imagine a honeycomb pattern of residual, sticky foam affixed to all the sides of the glass. Body is an intensely dark, cold, ruby color, with light bringing out brighter, transparent, vivid, ruby red colors. Although transparent, no carbonation is visible.

Aroma is strongly hoppy with American citrus and pine-like varieties, but this fades somewhat over the course of the beer, and a backdrop of some herbal, wood-like hops along with bittersweet chocolate, caramel and faint diacetyl becomes noticeable, adding some complexity.

The flavor is, overall, a delicious mix of American hops imparting bitterness with citrus and pine-like flavors over a modest caramel and chocolate base; this seems highly fitting for what the brewery was attempting with the concept of this beer (that is, a bitter, anti-Valentine's Day beer). Tasting opens with sweet caramel and pale malts along with the beginnings of hop bitterness and grapefruit-like flavors. Mid-palate of caramel and pale chocolate malts with balanced, but still juicy and citrus-like (grapefruit, orange) hops with mild pine. Back of palate has moderate bitterness with strong pine and lesser grapefruit flavors, very little sweetness or roasted malt presence here. Aftertate is of moderate residual bitterness, citrusy hops, slightly sweet caramel malt, and the slightest indication of dark or roasted malt.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, leading to a mouthfeel that is lightly foamy and persistently smooth across the palate. Closes dry, with moderate stickiness lingering across the palate.

A-Ruby very nice. Fairly dark close to a blood red even.

S- Hops, lots of hops. berries. malt. toffe. brown sugar.

T-plenty of bitterness, caramel, sweet hops, dry, really nutty as well as it warms. creamy. lots of citrus as well.

M- plenty of carbonation, dry, medium body, really smooth and really easy to drink.

Pretty darn good amber/red, i would even probably consider it a pale ale of ambers. Behind green flash red ipa, this is my fav. in that style. I highly recommend it to anyone. Actually gets really good around room temp, for some reason a good amber or red is the only style besides a barley wine i can handle at room temp, maybe a bba stout. Pick it up, delicious.

My Bloody Valentine pours a deep copper color. It’s very clear. Backlighting gives it a brighter scarlet look. It’s topped with a really nice off-white head. It rises to about a finger and a half in height. Retention was good. It stuck around for a while. Lacing was very sticky and think. Good looking stuff.

The nose kicks with a really nice caramel malt scent. It definitely smells a little sweet. There are some toasted and chocolate malt notes, as well. Smells like a nice combo. The chocolate variety has a nice cocoa scent. It’s definitely hoppy. The hops smell mostly floral. Pine is very pronounced. Grass is also noted. It’s tough to tell if falls on the malty or hoppy side of the fence. Alcohol is blended well and doesn’t come through strong. Smells good!

I like the flavor quite a bit. The malt base is very flavorful and sturdy. It’s a really nice combo of caramel, chocolate, and toasted malts. It’s a bit sweet and sugary. The cocoa flavor is very tasty! Hops are very much in the mix. They mostly taste piney and floral. It’s not very bitter. The malts provide a lot of balance. I was expecting it to be a little hoppier, but it’s well balanced. Alcohol isn’t much of a factor at all. Given its abv, that’s not too shocking. Finishes malty and piney. Very tasty!

My Bloody Valentine has a medium body. Carbonation is light and soft. It feels nice and smooth. Definitely goes down easy. Far too easy. I could handle a couple of these bombers. Impressive.

Alesmith Brewing Company is one of those breweries that seems to never let me down. I’m not sure they’ve ever brewed even an average beer. My Blood Valentine is another fine release. It’s a very well balanced Red Ale that’s incredibly drinkable. Very glad to finally find it in Ohio. Easy recommendation!

a clean but very deep amber, almost brown. 2 fingers of beige colored head which dissipated slowly and left behind some great lacing. the smell is like a hop infused caramel. lots of sweet caramel malt with west coast piney hop profile. tangy citrusy hops fill your palate with all that was desired, the sweet caramel backbone balances everything out nicely. a medium body beer with mild carbonation, leaves a nice resiny feel on the lips.

this one is right on par with the rest of alesmith's ipa's. the artwork on the bottle is also pretty awesome.

What an awesome looking bottle!

Pours out an extremely deep, dark amber with tons of ruby highlights throughout and an off-white head.

The aroma is packed with hops; citrus, grapefruit, resinous and pine followed by toffee and caramel notes.

The taste is also dominated by hops with some nice tropical and citrus hop notes followed by a dank pine and there is enough toffee and caramel malt notes to balance out the bitterness. There are some light biscuit notes, but this is very hop forward.

The body is medium and the mouthfeel is slightly creamy. It's very smooth and extremely easy to drink.

This is a really nice Red Ale and probably my current favorite! This has a ton of flavor without being overwhelming and the ABV isn't too high either.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful dark caramel/molasses red with a creamy tan head that dissipates somewhat fast.

Smell: toasted malts, hops, maybe a caramel toasted coffee scent,

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, with some carbonation. leaves the tongue slightly dry.

Taste: Hop forward with malt in the middle, and finishes dry like an IPA. I am getting again that slight coffee flavor like roasted fresh beans. this is not very present but maybe I am going crazy.

Overall: This is a good beer but nothing very special for the style. There are way better hoppy red ales out there. Tocobaga to name just one

Shazzam! This is great beer! Poured perhaps slightly too cold. Immediate hop aroma upon opening. Poured with a giant, foamy, frothy, thick, light tan head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber red with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is a very heady balanced, fresh blend of caramel malt and hop that was mostly pine with a little grapefruit. Flavor's like nose, slightly roasty (which i love), dominated by the hop and just balanced enough by the malt and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are faultless. Finish is like flavor, long, and just a tad medicinal. Very drinkable

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: dark murky red bodied beer with 3 fingers of a dirty tan colored head. The head is loaded with big and clumpy bubbles. The glass get loaded with lacing.

Smell: Bready and caramel malts. Pine and minty hop notes.

Taste: Pine and grapefruit rinds. Chalky tasting hops. Little bit of caramel malts and biscuit dough flavor. Nice balance with hop and malt profile.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking beer for sure.

Overall: This beers is okay. Nothing mind blowing, but its definately a beer of Alesmith well know quality. It reminds me of MBC Zoe, but just doesnt taste quite as good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from the bomber into a Harpoon pint glass. Body is clear reddish-amber with a 2-finger bubbly light-tan/beige colored head that sticks around with good staying power and leaves behind thick rings of lace.

S: Very nice for this style - a modest caramel and bready malt is overwhelmed by juicy, citrusy grapefruit with a hint of pine.

T: First impression is more about the mouthfeel than the taste - it's thinner in heft than expected and not very creamy; for some reason that big head made me think it would be more creamy than it is. Ah well, so it goes. . . . As for the flavors: it's big on the grapefruit juice, with some underpinnings of caramel malt. Also some leafy, herbal, tea-like impressions. Early on I also seem to get a touch of wet cardboard on the aftertaste, but after a few sips it seems gone; it may have been my imagination. . . .

M: Call it medium in heft, though on the lighter side of that description, with a slightly thin feel to it. Carbonation is on the lower end of things.

O: Good stuff and an easy drinker.

A: The beer is clear dark garnet red in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high beige colored head that took a very long time to die down and left a coating of bubbles on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of floral hops in the nose along with some notes of tangerines as well as some hints of caramel malts. Aromas of pine resin are also initially noticeable but these disappear as the beer warms up.
T: Hops also stand out in the overall taste, but aren't quite as dominant as the nose because there is a strong backing of caramel malts that contribute some notes of sweetness (to contrast with a light amount of hop bitterness) and hints of toasted malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a great balance between hops and malts and is rather easy to drink. It seems more like a hybrid between an amber ale and an IPA.

Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a very deep amber color with an inch of tan head that slowly recedes leaving a moderate surface layer with heavy lacing.

Smells of citrus and pine with a background earthy mineral quality.

Tastes of burnt sugar, citrus, pine resin with that background earthiness and a very mild touch of cherry.

Moderate to heavy mouthfeel with a sweet finish tempered by a good amount of carbonation. Lingering but not unpleasant aftertaste.

Overall a good beer. For me, the only downside was that earthy quality, not necessarily a bad quality just didn't seem to mesh with the other flavors.

The Beers of California

#70

Freshness Date: None

A: Deep magohony with a khaki head of resilient foam which finally leaves behind thick sheets on the glass.

S: Pine, flowers, and citrus zest jump out of the glass paired with candy cane sweetness.

T: Follows the nose with the hop forces of pine, flowers and citrus peel pitted against caramel and sugar sweetness each set out to win the soul of this brew. Some leafy bitterness builds in the finish but is mostly suppressed by the sweetness.

M: Medium feel with good linger and carbonation. The consistency neither adds or subtracts from the overall experience.

O: Different in a straightforward way; this brew brings earthy hoppiness built on a strong, sweet malt foundation. The sweetness is simple and almost overcomes this brew leaving little breathing room for the rest of the palate. I still enjoyed this beer which needed more malt complexity.

22oz bottle poured into tulip

Deep, ruddy red pour with soft ruby hues. Frothy, thick beige tanned head bubbles up, leaving heavy layers of lacing and filmy retention.

Resinous pine in the nose with bitter hoppiness. Toasted bread crust, caramel, burnt sugar and soft warmth.

Bitter and piny right up front with sticky hops and resin. Softer tones of citrus peel and pulp, followed by a little rush of bready, toasted malts with toffee. Caramel with burnt sugar and lingering bitterness on the back end.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. A decent balance of malt and hop presence, with an emphasis on the West coast dry-hopping. Nice beer, although I was hoping for a little more expression in the nose.

Poured from a bottle into a Pint glass (as the bottle suggests)

Appearance: Dark ruby red with two big fingers of tan head. Lots of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Nothing too out of the ordinary: hop bitterness and some sweet sugary malt.

Taste: Nice and very drinkable. Hops balanced with caramel and sweet malt. A little bit of molasses and cherry as I keep drinking.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and well carbonated. Goes down easy.

Overall: Well done Alesmith. A very enjoyable and drinkable beer that doesn't sacrifice complexity.

Poured from a 22-ounce bomber into a Libby glass. :D

A: Dark red-brown, like a good dubbel. Otherwise, pretty clear. Nice tan head that quickly falls back to light lacing.

S: Great hop aroma. They dry-hopped the hell out of this.

T: The taste, unfortunately, is not as good as the smell. This is a bit too dry for me. A maltier backbone would be nice.

M: Again, it's dry. Astringency. Not crazy about that.

Overall, what this beer really has going for it is hop aroma. Otherwise, it's pretty a pretty average brew with a gimicky name.

First off this beer has some great art work on the bottle, one of the better looking bottles on the market in my opinion.

Anyway, The beer poured out as a deep red color. The head was a light shade of tan with a very good retention and lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer is sweet, it's also hoppy and there is even some chocolate coming through on this one. The taste of the beer was pretty good, it's got some transitions from sweet to bitter then back to sweet. The malt followed by the hops and finally the chocolate comes in to settle things down a bit. The flavors to me sometimes get a little on the awkward side so at times I really liked it and other times I didn't. The mouthfeel was pretty good. Well carbonated and had a medium body. Overall I thought the beer was good. Sometimes though I think the flavors in it clash a bit and that hindered my thoughts on the beer. I enjoyed it but I feel there are better alternatives out there, it's still worth trying to see for yourself though.
