Scarlett Red RyeScarlett Red Rye
Notes: With a creamy body and rich roasty flavors, Scarlett is the perfect complement to the cooler months of Fall & Winter. This rye ale pours a deep red with a sticky off-white layer of foam and medium levels of carbonation. Note the aromas of fresh rye bread, caramel malt and earthy hops. Sweet malts are accented by subtle flavors of caramel, toffee, and chocolate. Notes of toasted grain, leather, and a mild peppery spice lead to a medium-dry finish.

Imbibed at City Beer Store on 9/1/12.

Clear, amber/ red ale with sticky white head that barely covers the top. Lots of copper caramel malt aroma with some chalky chocolate. A little bit of weedy, green, wet hops with a swirl. Taste starts with roasty chocolate and coffee. Not too bitter, but smooths out the drink towards the end. A little bit of metallic/blood flavor in the middle for good measure. Spiciness of rye is there, but barely noticeable. Handled the grain well IMHO. Dry finish, balanced MF. This reminds me of an unimperial version of Betrayal. Very good and sessionable. Would be good in the fall with these flavors. I wish they released this in six packs.

This is a very good, drinkable ale with some good light character. It is to me noticeably better than Bridgeport's broadly similar Smooth Ryed - both more drinkable and also with more character.

Deep red with huge, pale tan, airy head steadily shrinking to foamy ring.

Aroma is cherry and strawberry juice, hints of rye bread and grapefruit juice.

Taste is nice lightly sweet juiciness with very light balancing bitterness, with leafy citrus, hints of toasty bread, finish of earth and light spicy rye bread. It's very drinkable.

Amber reddish color with a huge beige fluffy head with decent retention and leaving a wall of strong laces.
Light aroma of grainy malt, rye, spicy yeast and earthy hops.
Balanced and bold flavor of rye, roasted and toasted malts, earthy hops, mild pine and lemon, caramel and American Amber Ale yeast. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness and residual taste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Enjoyable brew, a bit one dimensional and could have a more intense aroma, but it is very well balanced and even sessionable.
