COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, rich red ale without the bite (5.5% alcohol). This 3-time gold medal winner is a combination of 5 different styles of malts, and several different Yakima Valley hops. The use of ""crystal malt"" in the brewing process imparts a rich caramel flavor. This combination creates a flavor packed red ale like you’ve never had before!

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Caramel and toffee malts with a lot of toast and bread on the nose. Creamy sweetness, minimal hop profile, just a bit of a floral note. The flavor is a touch watery, but decently sweet and malty. Some toffee, caramel, and toasted bread. A hint of metal on the finish. A bit of grass, too. Surprisingly decent.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, deep red appearance with a light brown head. A touch fruity, burnt caramel malty, somewhat herbal/piney hoppy, slightly spicy, albeit uninspired aroma. Metallic, burnt malty, bitter herbal hoppy, tangy flavor. Too much metal.
