COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

Really nice sweet malt aroma with a fantastic hop aroma. This brewery make top notches beers all around. The finish is perfect with a malt backbone and hop dryness. Excellent.

straight bangin’. There honestly should be a distinction drawn for this style. Noble alpha red and this are really on another level for me. Aroma is pine, grapefruits, mango, pineapple, spruce, grass and light cat piss followed by a slight hint of caramel and chocolate. remarkably complex for an aroma profile. Pours a blood red with a tan thick head that laces like crazy. taste is hops bitter IPA but then surprise bonus!!! caramel and chocolates on the back of the tongue. Palate is perfectly refreshing not to thick and not saison dry. overall a really really nice offering with some style to boot.

Shazzam! This is great beer! Poured perhaps slightly too cold. Immediate hop aroma upon opening. Poured with a giant, foamy, frothy, thick, light tan head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber red with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is a very heady balanced, fresh blend of caramel malt and hop that was mostly pine with a little grapefruit. Flavor’s like nose, slightly roasty (which i love), dominated by the hop and just balanced enough by the malt and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are faultless. Finish is like flavor, long, and just a tad medicinal. Very drinkable.

Poured from a bomber into AleSmith snifters a mahogany with a tan head lacing nicely down the side of the glass. Aroma is of a sweet hoppiness. Taste is malted citrus & slightly floral bitter finish. Combined with a milk chocolate truffle--wow! Overall a superb hoppy brown. My most fave of all brown speciality ales! ALESMITH is exceptional!!

Bottle. Not sure how this review got by me. There are very few things I enjoy more than an amazing amber ale, and unfortunately this is only one of a few greats that I have had.

light reddish brown under a dense crown of light beige foam. Pleasant malt aroma, prunes, candy, bread and toffee. On the other hand green pine cones, resins and orange peels. In the mouth a pleasant bitterness that cohabits with the sweetness of the malt. Notes of citrus peels, resins, pineapples and oranges in taste, lasting aftertaste quite remarkable. Soft and full bodied with a nice level of carbonation.

ElGaucho (2380) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Bomber. Rich caramelly nose with a hint of molasses. Dark reddish brown with a beautiful yellowish head and excellent lace. For an amber ale this has an awesome subtle hop finish. Dry yet interesting. Best and most interesting low ABV beer I’ve had in some time.

tfontana (508) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2016
On tap at Mohawk Bend in shaker pint glass. Appearance is cloudy, orange-red dark brown (like a cloudy dark cider), with 1-2 finger width fluffy off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma is piney, citrus, floral hop dominant over caramel and toasted malt. Taste is piney over floral hops over caramel malt backbone with late cherry/fruit burst. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, soft carbonation, nice pleasant piney bitter finish. Overall, I got more pine than floral (which is fine by me). Different look and hop/malt balance.
