Scarlett Red RyeScarlett Red Rye

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.

My 250th review!

A: Pours a dark, scarlet brown with a decent amount of creamy, off-white head atop. Carbonation looks normal. Head retention is excellent and there is a fair amount of lacing as you drink. She's a beaut.

S: Roasted grains, brown sugar, molasses, soy sauce. Heavily malt forward with a hint of floral hops and a touch of alcohol astringency.

T: Follows the nose quite well. Roasted grains with cloying sweetness dominate throughout. Finishes crisp and dry with lingering bitterness on the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with a crisp, lively carbonation that makes the tongue tingle. Very smooth and quite drinkable without much bite or chewiness.

O: Quite impressive, though I would expect no less from Speakeasy. I haven't had a lot of brews in this category, but I imagine this will satisfy any malt-forward, toasty and drinkable beer cravings you might have. Cheers!
