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.

Kinda of a dark brown with a strong hint of red mixed in. Malty aroma with pine and a bit of citrus hops. Very pleasing taste, nice and solid with a hoppy flavored ending that doesn’t really add much bitterness. I expected this to be ok, but ti really turned out to be much nicer than I expected.

On tap at Pizza Port (Solana Beach, CA): Poured dark brown with some red highlights if held up to the light. Needless to say I was disappointed with the appearance as my expectations were a lot higher for such a cool name. However, the aroma and taste certainly makes up for it. Very hoppy for an amber. Aroma of citrus and pine perfectly balanced with some dark malts. Flavor is similar- fresh clean pine and citrus hops balancing with a smooth but not cloying maltiness. Delicate hop finish. Drinkability: Simply delicious. Pairing: Wide range of food; chicken, seafood, burgers, and spicy cuisine. I paired it with the Solana Beach pizza served at Pizza Port. Rebuy: Certainly. #287 on 25022010, DG.

Draft @ Father’s Office (Santa Monica). Pours a hazy, dark amber-brown color; creamy light-tan head with excellent lacing. Good amounts of basic fruitiness, toffee, and pleasant earthy bitterness; balanced, moderately dry, pleasant. Medium-to-full body; creamy presence, lively carbonation; pleasantly earthy and citrus bitterness, toffee, nuttiness, and slightly oily malt character; a nicely bitter amber; some sweetness and malty heft at the core; lasting finish of caramel, red fruits, earthy bitterness.

Unexpectedly hoppy. I was expecting a Valentine beer to have a fruity sweetness to it, but it was balanced out quite nicely by some aggressive hopping. Dark ruby red color with a thick foamy head. Interesting beer.

Poured a brown/reddish color with small head. Aroma was caramel and sweet hops. Taste was similar with a malt backbone. Overall it was good but I like Evil Dead Red more.
