Brewed by:
Speakeasy Ales & Lagers
California, United States

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Love all the beers from this brewery, have not had a bad tasting beer yet. finally got to try this one and was very surprised how good it was. Out of the 12oz releases from the Speakeasy brewery this might be my favorite. give this beer and any other beer from this brewery a try. if you're ever in the San Francisco area this is a really cool brewery to visit, excellent vibe and friends service.

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.
