COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wee Heavy Ale: Powerful caramel malt flavor, finishing climatically with a smooth warming sensation. Deep Red. 19.9°

Erie Brewing Company presents the beer previously know as “Red Ryder BIG Beer.” Red Ryder was dubiously awarded two “cease and desist” orders for its name. So with its unique new name (inspired by the long arm of the law), Ol’ Red Cease and Desist brings more to the table than just a big, malty flavor and climaxing warm sensation, it brings a legal record!

Beer Stories
Editor’s note: Formerly known as both "Red Ryder Big Beer" and "Red Ryder Ale".

SpringsLicker (3234) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours cloudy brown with a fleeting off-white head. Very light toffee aroma. The flavor is light honey, caramel and toast. Light bodied. This needs more malt flavor.

redpooba (402) - New York, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Red ale with a white head. Bold and strong on the nose which is slightly still hot. The ABV is 10.1 yet it is really well blended into the beer. The overall is quite nice.

Clear reddish-brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of toast and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and full of caramel flavor. Medium bodied and slightly syrupy.

Bottle thanks to Justin. Poured a one finger head with a nice mahogany color. Pretty decent aromas of caramel, toffee, honey, butterscotch, alcohol grain. Lighter texture but still has a big beer feel. Medium light bitterness. Slight metallic taste. One of the better ones I’ve had from Erie.

Beerathon (1491) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2012

Taken from old notes. Dark orange pour with a nose of sweet malts and caramel. Bitter to go along with the sweet malts. Sweetish aftertaste. 10.1% is very well hidden.
