COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like many of our beers, Red Wheelbarrow (which started out as a pilot batch brewed by brewer Dan Roberts) doesn’t fit neatly into a style category — think of it as a stronger, more hop-forward interpretation of a traditional red ale. Red Wheelbarrow is not, however, a “red IPA” – there is robust malt character (think raisin and fig) on both the nose and palate that temper the abundant hop presence (think citrus fruit). Vitals: Color – Red ABV – 7.0% O.G. – 1.070 Malt – Weyermann Munich 1, Briess 2-Row, Victory, Chateau Special B, Chateau Abbey, Briess C-80 Hops – Columbus, Amarillo, Falconer’s Flight

On tap at brewery. Pours cloudy dark amber/brown with off white head. Citrus aroma with malt dried fruit and pine. Flavor starts off sweet caramel malt and golden raisins followed by citrus and tropical fruit. Finishing with grapefruit. Excellent brew!

Beergeek23322 (2285) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
9/27/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Red-brown with a tan head. Floral, hoppy aromas, so fresh and fruity. Dried fruit, malt, caramel and loads of hops. Everything goes together in perfect harmony. One of the best amber ales out there.

EricTeusink (691) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Grabbed this while in Charleston. Pours copper with thick off white head. Scent is a touch of citrus and grain. A little hop forward for my liking. Would like a bit more balance. Bottle - Bottles - Charleston, SC

jbruner (2328) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Bottle thanks to trade with jdb288! Pours a slightly hazy copper with big fluffy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of big caramel masks and a touch of pine hops. Taste is like a nice malt forward IPA, bitterness is present, earthy pine hops, yet still nice malt sweetness. Good stuff.

Ontape (310) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle from Lukaduke. Poured gently and still have me a massive eggshell head, rising above an oversized pint glass. Some typical "red malt" aromas backed with heavy American hops. Caramel, raisin, pine, citrus all show up on taste. Balanced and well made but just a style I don’t get too excited about.

obguthr (3862) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Grapefruit and tangerine nose, caramel accents. Cloudy auburn, thick yellow head. Whole orange, cherry and dried leaves, chewy caramel. Medium body, smooth, very light carbonation. Cask-like smoothness and nuances. Amber ales are among my least favorite styles because they are usually so meh, but I would enjoy drinking this all day, everyday. Fantastic and the model for this style.

KyotoLefty (6504) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle at WF Columbus Circle. Deep reddish-brown, cloudy, high foamy head. Great nose, caramel, pine, earth, cinnamon, orange. Very hoppy falvor, great citrus, pine caramel. Perfect balance. Prickly, small carbonation. Peppery, spicy finish. Great as usual from Maine.

MaBeer1972 (1330) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from DeBuca’s. Pours out a light-to-medium amber-copper color with a frothy light tan head that stays around a long time. Flowery-malt aromas. Body is on the medium-light side. Roasty notes with layers of perfume and spice. Sorta muddled overall.

John25 (517) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Amber, big light tan head. Aroma is pine, dark fruit, and toast. The taste adds raisin at first, some caramel and citrus, and big hoppy bitterness on the finish. Low carb and light mouthfeel at first with a very rich, bitter coating on the finish. I’ve had this one in the past - I like it more each time I try it. Another very unique MBC beer in its own category. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber-reddish color, Clear and dark red. Aroma of hops, wheat, flowers, grass, caramel and yeast. Taste is strong red hops, little bit of citrus, malt, raisins and alcohol. Tons of foam on this baby. Solid amber offering.
