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.

This poured a ruby red color with a somewhat small off white head. Aroma on this was just phenominal, it smells like citrus trees and pine trees growing in the same forest, yum. Flavor was just as appealing, very fresh clean piner and citrus hops balancing out a very smooth but not cloying maltiness. This is very underated beer.

A top flight Amber Ale from Alesmith, loaded with pineapples, grapefruits, and sticky malt goodness. Ballin.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Davis (Covell). The aroma on this is great. Bright, citrus hop notes, orange and mandarin. There are also underlying light toasted, and caramel malt character. Light sweetness. Really nice aroma on this. Transparent ruddy-amber body with a large, frothy, strong light beige head. Great lacing. Starts with a significant nutty, lightly sweet, caramel and toffee maltiness. Wow. Light toastiness in the middle. Finishes with a light herbal hop flavor. There is just so much to like about this beer. Very rich and malty. Insanely good.

Beautiful malt in flavor and color. Great bitter balance. Hop flavor could be a bit brighter and clean, but since it isn’t the dominant flavor the slight dullness there detracts less. Can’t ask for a better aroma. Have had the 6.66 Halloween version and it was similarly excellent. Curious how they compare. Nice nod to a great band just for a bonus.
