BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Coastal Extreme Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States
newportstorm.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This first beer from Newport Storm continues to be one of its most popular. The goal was to create a flavorful ale where delicate malt and hop flavor were in perfect balance. To meet this goal, the brewing crew uses North American crystal malt for color and sweetness, and Munich Malt for body and mouthfeel. The perfect amount of spicy Tettenang hops are added for flavor and aroma which compliment the bittering properties of the Magnum hops to round out this session brew.

SAmpling a cellar temp bottle poured into a pint glass. This 12 oz bottle has been in the cellar for about 2 years in an unintentional aging process.
The beer pours a rich crimson to mahogany color with a fizzy beige head of 1 cm. The head fades quickly to a wispy surface layer soon after the beer is poured into the glass. So far this seems okay for drinking.
The aroma is rich and sweet immediately after the pour with caramel and toffee and a bit of dark fruit mixes in too. I think any hops have faded on this beer.
The first sip reveals an average body with very fine and tingly carbonation. Texture is smooth and silky and does coat my palate just a bit on each swallow.
Flavor is a bit of biscuity malt and some sweet caramel and a little corn sugary sweetness on the finish. Again no hops at this point and no booze comes through either.
The beer is easy to drink but is a little sweet at this time. I prefer some of the other offerings from coastal extreme and will stick to those on future purchases.

Although I am doing my winter snowbirding, the trunk of my car is full of beers from woodychandler. This is one of them. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some caramel. Taste is malts, some pine, caramel, a bit on the mild side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Glowing amber ale. Not much head and no lacing. Ok smell. Taste malty, grainy. Beer drinks buttery smooth. Look and feel is best part of beer.

Moderate richness, good malty sweet flavor, thin finish detracts. (draft)
