COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Released shortly before Valentine’s Day, My Bloody Valentine is the red-blooded cousin of our Halloween specialty ale, Evil Dead Red. Caramel-sweet malt is delicately balanced with floral American hop varieties for a truly unique drinking sensation. A deep mahogany red color and a big, aromatic hop profile are the signatures of this seasonal ale.

Deep red in color with a very light taupe colored head. Nose brings a mirage of west coast hops and rich caramel malts. Moderate amounts of citrus, pine needles, pine resins, citrus, sap, herbs, light sweet tropical fruits, nuts, toffee, toasted malts, cooked raisin sugar, dark and lightly burnt caramels. Flavor follows suit with dark caramel, toffee, roasted sugar aroma supported with a heavy mooing of piney, citrus, and fruity hops. Medium carbonation, lightly bitter which is nice that it doesn’t punch you in the face with bitterness. Can’t help but finish with a dark caramel finish.

Bottle. Pours a very deep mahogany color with a nice, off white head. Nice, hoppy aroma with a hint of caramel, cherries, and cocoa. Nice, smooth hoppy flavor. Creamy. Smooth finish. One of my more favorite from Alesmith.

22 oz. bottle, sent from 48FanInCali (thanks a lot, Austin), pours a deep dark amber / mahogany with a fairly large beige / tan head. Big aromatics with a perfect marriage of sweet caramel malts and a wallop of floral hops - very similar to YuleSmith Winter. Flavour brings out loads of dry caramel malts, and a slight roasty quality, followed by wonderful floral hops which leave a subtle astringency. The sweetness in the nose is contrasted by a more dry malt flavour. Extremely well-balanced with high drinkability. Another most excellent AleSmith creation.

PhillyCraft (3516) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle shared with Keith. Poured a hazy amber with massive off white head, tiny bubbles good lace. Aromas and taste of caramel, candy sugar, hops, vanilla, plum and bitter pine. Finishes with a pretty big bite. Enjoyable but i prefer any ipa or pale over an amber.

thicksuds (445) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Looks and smells amazing, solid pour, frothy head, sweet smelling. Taste is also good, imperial red ale, deep malty taste backed up by a solid hop punch. Has a fruity sweetness to it, and almost like a cask flavor element as well. Complex and very drinkable. Nice!

22oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours ruby/brownish with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of a lot of caramel and toffee in the malts plus a good amount of citrusy hops. Flavor the same, with a very nice blend of hops and malts. Average texture. Another awesome Alesmith beer.
