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.

Citrus, grassy hops, and nuts in the aroma. Flavor starts malty, caramel sweet, and nutty, with some fruit bitterness in the finish. I love red/amber ales, and this is no exception.

[Bottle (750ml) shared w/ HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry] Pours a deep auburn with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, nuts, chocolate, light spicy hops and dark fruit. Malty flavour along with leafy hops and a bitter finish that is only slightly harsh. Medium bodied. Pretty good overall.

monkeychugg55 (936) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Dark, reddish cola color with a small, frothy, tan head. The aroma has some thick, sweet, caramel malt up front. There is also a strong herbal, resinous, and spicy hop aroma reminiscent of Columbus. The flavor starts out sweet with really rich caramel, then there’s some balancing bitterness, strong hops, but still finishes on the sweet side. Very full body for a <7% beer.

Aroma of grainy malt, piney, citrus and candied citrus hops. The taste is raw malt, piney, citrus, tropical hops. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

Bottle from a bottle shop in Burlington VT. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aromas of candied orange rind. Slight pine. Taste is sweet up front and bitter at the finish. Decent but overshadowed by the other beers we were drinking at the bachelor party.

Poured from bottle into teku glass. Great color and a citrusy hop filled aroma. Flavor is juicy hops buttressed by a nice caramel chewiness. Not the most complex of beers, but it also straddles a few styles. Unique and fun.

cards04 (2065) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a muddy maroon color. Aromas are bread and dank vegetation. Very malty. Lots of bread... And I mean lots. Some bitterness in there too. Not my favorite alesmith offering but still a solid brew.
