1876 is the year Briess Malting Co. was founded. The brewery first produced this beer when their barrel count was 1876 for a special celebration with Briess. Using heavier malts gives our Red Ale a full malt flavor. The burnt sugar flavor is complimented by Briess' Black Malt.

This red had a creamy head, with a nice caramel scent and flavor. Not too complex, but a good solid beer.

Very full flavor, very malty. Dark amber hue. Rich burnt caramel flavor and aroma, just a hint of bitter.

Toasted light ruby color with a small cream head. Good malty aroma and flavor backbone. Well-balanced with a touch of German hops. Good malt and good beer.

GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Very red, little tiny head. A bit of a caramel nose (imagine that!?) but a good deal more floral & bitter than any of rowland’’s others. Definite hop presence. Hints of vanilla followed by subdued floral notes & a nice bitter finish. Good balance of course.

It’s an ale, so I’m not surprised that its a little heavier and fuller than most of the Calumet lagers; but it’s missing the characteristic strong malty sweetness and light tanginess that I like in most of the Rowlands’ other beers. Stick to lagers, Bob!

Once again Rowland’s brews another quality beer. Very malty a little on the bitter side, but I still like it.
