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.

Poured a deep, dark brown with a hint of red much like birch beer with a slight off white head.......aroma of citrusy hops, caramel maltiness......taste is clean with a touch of caramel, crisp, medium mouthfeel, with a sweet and bittered finish. Quite nice for an amber, which is not my favorite grain, but well done.

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head over a clear, reddish amber (SRM 18) body.....nose is toffee/caramel, from toasted malts, pine resin, balanced.....taste is slightly sweet, toffee/caramel notes, light dried fruits, pine, resin, citrus peel, lingering hop, roasted malt bitterness, balanced......mouth feel, body medium, slightly sticky, mild alcohol, carbonation makes a creamy sensation. This is a well balanced, wonderfully complex beer, Malts add sweetness, toffee/caramel notes, hints of dried fruits, hops balance back with typical American tones. BJCP 8/3/15/4/8
