Notes / Commercial Description:
Lobster Ale is a copper "Red" ale with a medium hop flavor and aroma. It offers all the qualities of "Red Ale" with subtle levels of fruity-ester flavor and hint of caramel. A slight yeast haze and chill gives Lobster Ale a clear. foamy. rich head. Belfast Bay Brewing Co, is near tile Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia known for it Red Ale breweries.
When Pat Mullen's wife suggested that a brewery from Maine should make a beer called Lobster Ale. a user-friendly red ale seemed to be the perfect brew, We scaled back on the heavily hopped formulas our neighbors produce. We then added slight amounts of black and dark crystal grains to produce a smooth. medium hopped brew. The result is a very flavorful and drinkable red ale with an extremely smooth finish.
