COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep red ale deftly balances rich malt flavours of toast and toffee with subtle spicy hop aromas and a cleansing bitterness. One of our original brews, this beer makes a great introduction to the enticing flavours of craft beer and is also very versatile for pairing with food.

Une rousse, telle qu’annoncée, ayant une mousse qui se résorbe en un mince voile rapidement. Des parcelles de cette dernière s’accrochent au verre. Au nez, c’est sans histoires. Malt, herbes et caramel. Le goût est herbacé, poivré, plus ou moins crémeux, avec une légère amertume qui n’est pas à plaindre. Des bulles un peu coriaces qui diminuent heureusement d’intensité au fil de la dégustation. Ce n’est pas mauvais, mais c’est assez ordinaire. Version à 5,3% (1164-020814)

johnnnniee (2459) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap at The Gahan House as part of the sampler. Pours a brilliantly clear red/brown color with a smallish beige head. Aromas of bready toasty caramel malt with hints of roast and earth. The flavor is interesting caught somewhere between an amber and a brown with lots of interesting roast and chocolate notes. I enjoyed this enough that I ordered a pint.

Seems to have more going for it than other Gahan House offerings. Tastes of bread, caramel, and you do get some hop tastes in there as well. Has some more body than most of their ales and finishes off with a bitter aftertaste. Pretty standard.
