Our newest offering Fracas Imperial Red is a deep crimson, bordering on brick red. The nose is big grapefruit, with subtle hints of pine, watermelon and honeydew. The hops are just bitter enough to stand up to the sweet malt and caramelized sugar flavor of the malts. The roast barley gives it depth of color without being overly astrigent or burnt/acrid. The hops in the finish are ever present and the flavor mimics the nose of the beer. Fracas has a slighlty chewy mouthfeel and finishes with a nice caramel sweetness yet without flabbiness in the body.

Part of the sampler at the tap room in Concord CA. Aroma of caramel and spice. Love the malt backbone on this one. One of my favorites of the day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big, bold, hoppy Red ale! The aroma on this beer is outstanding with lots of citrus and malt goodness. The type of beer I always want around in my fridge.

hrabren (389) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 22, 2015
0.65 bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Dark copper, clear with small off white head. Dry figs and raisins, some herbal hops. Very fruity character. Hoppy start, but very spicy fruity character develops, sweet cake like finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. A classic example of style.

HammerTroll (948) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 12, 2015
Cloudy deep amber color, big off-white head. Hoppy aroma, with nice fruit and caramel addition. Taste begins very well, with hoppy bitterness, but it soon turns into some not so pleasant caramel, weird herbal notes and heavy sweetness. It is still a good beer, but that finish kind of ruined it for me.

Braudog (6069) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Bit of an off funk right up front, not a great start. This gives off a wild essence, drinks with a stark sugary pull and a sturdy caramel backbone. (#5959, 4/15/2015)
