Gritty McDuff ’s Red Claws Ale is a what the Brits call a fine session beer: a smooth ale, not too strong and full of flavor. Red Claws Ale has a dark red-amber color; a full, round malt palate; nutty and roasted accents, and a delicate hop flavor that whispers with just a hint of floral finish. The perfect ale for a long afternoon in the pub with good friends and traditional fare.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 28, 2010
(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours coppery amber, slightly hazy. Three or so fingers of biscuit head that recede to about half a finger and eventually get kind of globby. Aroma of caramel and bread, and even a bit of chocolate. Fairly inviting except a hint of metalllic. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, except lightly prickly. Also quite thin. Flavor is a letdown after a fairly promising aroma. Some caramel overlain by some bitterness, becoming a bit chocolatey as it warms. A bit metallic. Flavor and mouthfeel are weak.
