COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For years local air taxis have ferried mountain climbers to the base camp on the south side of Denali, flown flight seeing tours over “The High One,” and dropped off backpackers and other outdoor enthusiasts in all corners of the Alaska backcountry. Denali Brewing Company draws the inspiration for its red ale from Talkeetna’s rich aviation history. Brewed with five choice American and European malts and just enough hops for balance, we hope you find Single Engine Red a suitable compliment to your next Alaskan adventure, whether in the air or on the ground.

Can. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is toasty with some dough coming through underneath. Taste is lightly sweet up front, but has a bit of toast throughout. Meh.

Davhgbrew (927) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2014
Unfortunately drank out of a non beer clean glass, and there is whether it’s in my mind or legit a taste of detergent. Caramel aroma, nice ruby appearance. Mostly malt forward, but has a moderate hop bitterness to back up the malt. Medium light bodied, finishes with a little piney and woodsy hop flavor. At 5.8 it’s Sessionable, but could use a little more body in my opinion.

hockeybeerguy (1502) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours a semi-dark red and leaves a brown/red colored body, half finger white foamy head that dies within about thirty seconds, some light lacing that slides into the body; the aroma has caramel malts coming through in a bland sort of way, shallow earthiness to it; the flavor is mainly sweet through the caramel malts, caramel aftertaste, dry finish; its pretty easy on the palate and is somewhat sessionable, carbonation is somewhat smooth for the style and good to me; overall, not a bad American Red/Amber ale, though it could be construed as an Irish Red because of the lack of hops, still acceptable to have again, though I may not seek out

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Rich ruby and deep amber coloured body with a bright almost violet tint and a large, seven centimetre tall tan head, rather billowy. Aroma of malt, caramel and a hint of light spices, all with a good yeast nose. Medium-bodied; Deep caramel and sweet flavour with a bit of raisins, figs and a little earthy malt note with toffee. Aftertaste shows a touch of spices, but the main flavour revolves around the good malt, strong sweetness from pit fruits and raisins and a little spice kick at the very end. Overall, a good earthy and rather sweet beer with a lot of caramel notes and hints of spices and earthy flavours. Great to try,and the can makes it that much better, especially from the last frontier. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-May-2013 for US$1.70 sampled at home in Washington a few hours before leaving again for Alaska on 03-October-2013.

kramer (4858) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear reddish amber body with some finger frothy beige head. The nose is sweet and slightly grainy with just a light hint of floral hops. The flavor is on the sweeter side as well, there’s a distinct sweet white grape note under the caramel that isn’t all that pleasant. Minimal to no hops present. Light to medium bodied with a bit of clingy stickiness and fizzy carbonation. Not terrible, but nothing I’d choose to finish a pint of.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Can:   Deep amber, thin to moderate frothy off-white head, little lacing.   Pale breadiness and soft apple/pear skin on the nose.   Moderately sweet pale breadiness up front, a little fruity in an apple or pear aspect.   Not as malty as I like my Ambers.   Low bitterness, very minute.   Certainly more fruity than most.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of apple/pear skin, light breadiness, toasted malts.   Easy drinking, but could stand to be more malty and less fruity.   Tiz okay.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Clear dark burnt orange color. Malty roasted nut aroma. Smooth clean palate. Short finish. A slight watered down aspect. Just ok for the style.

BrewDad (4784) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2013
Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking amber ale. The flavors good malt and hops balance. The beer was very malty in the finish. Decent beer.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Biscuit and caramel, toast and light fruity notes. Pours brown auburn thin head. Flavors of caramel biscuit soft fruity residual sugars and a touch of english hop notes. Light fruity finish lingers.
