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

Goodgrief (1770) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 24, 2014
All of the beers from these guys are so good. Ruby Amber pour, super head and good lacing. Pungent alcohol and caramel aroma. Caramel malts, floral hops with light citrus notes. Nice burn. This thing is perfectly balanced. If I didn’t have to sell my children for medical experimentation, I would drink these fellas beer all the time.

agl108 (780) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle. Poured deep hazy ruby with fluffy light khaki head. Remarkable lacing. Flavor is some roasted malt with raisin and figs. Also some grapefruit present. Lively carbonation, slightly silky mouthfeel. Dry finish. The overall quality of these Maine beers just oozes from every bottle.

mansquito (3295) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 50cl ($8): Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly hoppy (somewhat herbal, fruity, citrus), a hint of booze, and plenty of malts. Taste is mellow at the front then gets progressively more bitter into the finish and comes off with a nice lingering hoppy aftertaste. The sugary malt backbone provides a nice undertone throughout. Unsurprisingly, everything is excellently balanced. Once again, no complaints.

MWMBeerguy (83) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Aroma is malty and earthy. Almost like a rye beer though there doesn't appear to be any rye in it. Not much hops in the nose but a hint of flowery hops behind the malt. Hazy copper/red color with a wonderful fluffy cream colored head. A well balanced beer with earthy and slight citrus notes. Must admit my palate might be a bit wonky from the cigar I had just before but it works well with the stogie. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

puboflyons (2070) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2014
From the 650 ml. bottle stamped 042214. It pours a medium amber with reddish hues, a tremendous cream colored foamy head, and good clarity. The first thing I pick up in the aroma is floral and pine hops with a good malt backbone kind of bringing up the rear. The body is medium and smooth. The taste has a durable roasted barley malt quality with a strong bitterness due to all the hops. Got some zing this does.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a darker amber with a full, smooth, lingering, off white head. The aroma is fruity, with grapefruit, pineapple, peach, some floral hops, a bit of lemon, and light caramel. The taste is more dry with some bitterness to it. Here I find a healthy amount of pine and grapefruit up front, which than extends into softer fruity notes. These include peach, lemon, and hints of pineapple. Aftertaste is shorter and is grapefruit and pineapple. Medium bodied, slick textured, with above average carbonation. This is another solid offering from the Maine Beer Company.
