3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
June 9th, 2011 - I often complain that ambers don’t exhibit a lot of variance, but sometimes you find one that is exceptional, and in a good way. One example is Fort Collins Brewery’s Red Banshee - a fair looking woman but promising a dark howl, hue and cry of flavor. Like the woman on the label, the beer is a deep ruby red, with a loose, tan head. Caramel and maraschino cherries sweeten up the aroma, topped with a hint of apple - curiously rich for an amber. Finally, the flavor has abundant deep caramel tastes, almost as dark and sweet as a dark chocolate, with a deep hint of sweet, ripe fruits, almost like the merest (basso) peep of raspberry jam. All in all, this is a deep and satisfying brew, readily available and pretty cheap, and showing off everything an amber can do.
