COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
Lancaster Red is a premium strength, ruby red beer, fired by plentiful amounts of Goldings and First Gold hops to give a wonderfully spicy but sweet fragrance. Using a blend of Maris Otter, Crystal and Dark Crystal malts, Red offers a robust malt-dominated body finished with a splendid bitter note. Red is an impact bitter designed to leave a lasting impression both visually and on the taste buds." Robust ale with a malt dominated body.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle, courtesy of KimJohansen and Papsoe. A clear, amber beer with an off-white head. Malty and slightly bready nose with some citrusy hops. Toffee and fruity hops in the flavor, some bitterness and a hint of licorice. Medium to full body, semi-dry. The finish has caramel and some bitterness, and notes of licorice. Quite nice, especially like the licorice touch. 100814
