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.

A: The pour is deep amber color with a lot of brown to it. The head is minimal at a little less than a finger’s worth of off-white foam. S: The nose is almost exactly what I look for in a red ale. Plenty of grapefruit and miscellaneous citrus notes from the hops with a nice toasty and bready malt backbone and a mild pine quality. T: Fairly similar to the taste with a hit of citrus on the front end, sweet bready and caramel malt in the middle and a bit of bitter pine on the finish. Not quite as good as the aroma, but still quite nice. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation and a crisp finish. D: One of my new favorite beers from Alesmith. It’s unfortunate that this beer isn’t one of their "staples", but I suppose it will make me look forward to the opportunities I get to have it.
