COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cervecería Barbarian is one of the first Craft Breweries in Lima, Peru. Barbarian “Red Ale” is their first beer out on the market. It has a red copper color and a nice head that stays on the pint glass while you drink. It is also dry hopped with American Hops and mildly bitter. You can also find caramelized flavors from the special malts used during their brewing process. It is a flavorful, easy to drink English-like Ale influenced with a typical hop characteristic profile from American Ales.

20cl pour at the Miraflores location, pours a ruddy, burnt orange with some cloudy white head. Nose has biscuit, malt, orange, mild soap. Flavor has more of the malt/apple thing red ales give you, some hop bitterness, soap, biscuit. Dry finish. Easy drinker. Good intro beer in this market.

It is a nice pale ale, in my point of view, a bit watery but a nice citrus hop, giving a pleasant taste, refreshing, particulary during this hot day in Lima for a family birthday. The color is classical, copper and orange, average carbonation.

Bottle, courtesy of Meilby’s mom. A hazy copper colored beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head pulling down curtains. The aroma is rather neutral, with some bready caramel notes and a certain fruityness. Much less yeasty than the other ones I’ve had from this brewery. Still some though. Soft bitterness in the mouth, with orange zest and pine cones. A malty touch in the back. Long bready and hoppy finish. A decent one that drinks easy. 151124

Bottle in Crowne Plaza Hotel, Lima. Nice copper body with top tan head. Nose is malts, caramel, watery. Taste is plentiful of malts, caramel and brown sugar. Good stuff. Impressed me.

mzaar (2791) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle @ Incontri, Aguas Calientes. Pours amber with an off white head. Nutty, fruity and malt aromas and flavours. I hope to get a taste of the draught version, that one seems better. This, quite a disappoitment after my big expectations.

gringobrian (8) - PERU - SEP 11, 2014 does not count
this should be 2 ratings - 1 for the tap version and 1 for the bottled. Barbarian is not a great bottler. here I will only address the draft at Cañas y Tapas in Miraflores. For the bottled - widely available - subtract 15% across the board. Pours a rich red with a nice clean malty / nutty aroma. Solid head with a pleasant haziness. Nice malt / bitter balance, clean and light flavor, an solid, drinkable red in a country with almost nothing to compete with it.
