Barrio Rojo is our newest version of a low hop, very malty, Scottish Ale. Traditionally Scottish Ales contained very minimal to zero hops allowing the higher amount of malt to shine through in the form of sweetness. We took our time to caramelize the brewing sugars to create a low bitterness, sweet beer with notes of caramel brown sugar and cinnamon.

~Caramel raisin aroma, light prune, brown sugar. ~Pours a clear golden brown color with long lasting creamy yellowish white head. ~Rich malty flavor of brown sugar, caramel, bread and raisin. ~Medium full bodied, medium CO2, sweet yet dry finish. ~Enjoyable scotch ale. Could drink a few of these

Amber pour, off white head. Flavors of caramel, toffee, maybe some golden raisins. Again, its tasty but nothing spectacular.

Arrives from the tap with an amber tinged tan colored head. The beer is a rich amber/red color that is a clear, copper tinged, copperhue when held up to the light. The nose smells of toasted whole grain with a caramelized edge to it. There is a bit of a grassy herbal edge to the beer, but it is mostly malt influenced.

Medium bodied, but with a prickly carbonation that seems a touch too heavyy for this beer. The beer is again way too cold, but flavors of toasted, slightly nutty, whole grain are noticeable up front. The finish has some bitterness to it, a light herbal note, and a sort of tartness somehow. A bit of nutty character and perhaps even some roast character starts to come out as the beer warms up a bit.

Again, not bad, the cold definitely gets in the way of really enjoying this beer, even more so than the Blanco, this should be on the warm side of cool, rather than served at lite beer like temperatures.

Growler pour; poured a fairly red orange type color. Large khaki colored head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, fruit, with some toasted notes. Fairly sweet throughout with some caramel and fruit; not overly flavorful. Ok overall.

Poured up at Flanny’s Arizona on Tap Festival with a nice looking amber body that has a slight haze and copper edges and supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up sweet malts, caramel, kind of bready, kind of doughy and then it ends with slivers of sweet smelling prune like fruity esters. The taste is similar with sweet malts and caramel candy that have a slight doughy edge to them. To midway those notes are further sweetened by some thin sweet prune and ripe cherry like fruity esters. Pretty nice.
