After the boring Amber, my expectations for the Red were pretty low. Well, I was really impressed by this beer. It’s a very strong example, so there is room to pack in some burly flavour. Dark amber-red colour is already a step ahead of the game. Smells good - probably the Simcoe talking. This hop character combines well with the richer crystal malts used. Rich, nuanced, almost smoky, there’s a lot of reasons to give the Red a second look.

Draft at the source. Deep amber color, thick cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of toasted caramel. Taste is rich and creamy bittersweet toffee with a pine resin finish. Very nice.

bhensonb (11089) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle from Liz. Pours deep mahogany with a foamy beige head. Smells like pine! Ok, there’s some roast malt flavor, but there’s a lot of piney hop. And maybe some citrus hop. And maybe some other kind of hop. It isn’t really all that bitter on a NW basis, but for an amber this is way over the top. Good brew!
