Revelry Imperial Red Ale is brewed in the style of an American Imperial Red Ale. Available in 12 oz. bottled 6 packs and on draft. Released as a fall seasonal.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a creamy caramel-white head over a maple-amber body with a modest sedimentary haze and moderate relaxed carbonation. Retention is very good, lacing is medium and spotty. 4.25

(Smell) Toasted grain malt, light caramel syrup and a hoppy nose of pithy citrus, lemongrass and pine. Potency is moderate. 3.75

(Taste) The flavor expounds on the graininess of the malt bill, quite edgy and sharp with a light sweetness and an otherwise simple body. The hop notes are faint resins, muted pine and spicy hops. Overall, it’s just not as enjoyable as the aroma suggested, and a bit harsh all around. 3

(Mouthfeel) The texture is silky, lightly chewy, slick and moderately dry. Carbonation generates a soft frothiness for a smooth, mellow mouthfeel. Body is medium for the style, medium/heavy overall. The balance is slightly bitter and grainy over sweet. The alcohol presence is medium-high, and off characters are noted as a stronger than expected grain ethanol and mild oxidation. 3

(Overall) A very less-than-stellar imperial red with too much harshness in the flavor to come out as enjoyable. Potentially this is an old bottle, but I only had a Lot # to go by and no other point of reference to compare to. Approach with caution. 3.25
