COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
King Kitty Red is a Northwest take on the typically malt forward style. Brewed with four different hop varietals and a sweet malt backbone, this ale is balanced with a clean bitterness and enticing aromatics.

Tap at BCS. Clearish copper brown with no head. Caramel notes with some grass hops on the nose. Medium bitterness on the palate with some light chocolate and caramel in the background. Finish is slightly bitter. Probably the best of the Oregon Beer Geeks beers today (outside of Cascade of course) at BCS. Not a bad amber at all.

King kitty red ale 5.8% 60 IBU a deep reddish brown with an off-white head. The taste is a bitter biscuit maltiness with a citrusy peppery flavor. Ok.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This pours clear and dark brown with a lot of red hues. A nice off white creamy head. A chocolate aroma. Malts lead here but there is a consistent hop bitterness behind that. Those hops also bring citrus fruit. A gob of sediment on the bottom of the glass made the end very yeasty. That caused a finish like an IPA with big hops, yeast, and malts. Big improvement to make it less like an Amber.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours clear dark amber with a big beige head. Nose of rich roasted malts and ripe fruit. Some floral hops blend with the malts. Medium in body. Smooth in mouth feel. The flavor is fruit, chocolate and roasted malts. Yeast shows up in last pour. There is bitterness that holds on in to an earthy finish. Very good amber.

On tap at Coalition, pours an opaque dark amber with a small white head. Aroma has a good balance of resinous hops and bready caramel malt. Flavour is dry, with bready malts and a touch of resinous hops - less hops than in the nose. Bland and weak, but clean and decently balanced.

Draft - Earthy malts and sweet caramel. Hazy copper with a decent white head. Caramel and toasty notes with some battering hops.

We had Red Ale night back in January and this wasn't our favorite. Cheers from the Cannery Row Beer Club!

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy dark straw colored body. The aroma is damp grains and lemon. The taste starts with sharp bitter note, quickly gets malty but not too sweet. Finishes with a slightly metallic bitter note. The texture is crisp. It’s fine, malty ale.

"Solid red. Hybrid Irish/hoppy amber. Sweetly hoppy, malty and nutty all at the same time. A little thin but not lacking in flavor or aroma...
