An intriguing spin cycle of English, German and American brewing techniques, Spin Cycle Red is a celebration of the classic English-style ESB. The perfect balance of malt and hops create an enjoyable and quaffable red ale. Spin Cycleís specialty malts combine to provide an aroma of lightly toasted bread and caramel, while additions of American Noble hops add an herbal flavor for balance.

PalCabral (145) - - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy reddish brown with a beige-white thick head that slowly settled to a nice layer of scum throuout the session. Iíd call the beer color mahogany hadnít it been for the haziness of the beer. Iíd give it a 4 in appearance but the foam head pulls it up to a 5:er. The aroma is a lovely mix of crystal malts, maybe some melanoidin/aromatic malts as well, and some piney hops. The taste takes the aroma impression up one more level. The beer is sweet from the crystal malts, and I guess some roasted malts are souring it somewhat. The balance from the hoppy bitterness comes in the second wave, but they are thankfully not overwhelming, backing up the sweetness rather than taking over. The texture is so soft, itís delicious, and the beer reminds me of a belgian brune, albeit a bit lower in alcohol and with a less expressive yeast. Itís simply a wonderful beer of itsí type. Good work!

reebtogi (5192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
650ml bottle pours a rich amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and citrus with some herbal or spicy notes. Taste is a citrus and spicy hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is one of the better brews I have had in this style for a long time. Recommended, as it is quite tasty.

Tastes a lot stronger than it really is. It is one of the more pleasant Ale styles I have had in a while.

Svesse (7507) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
(Bottle, as "Crystal Bitter") Reddish amber colour, slightly hazy, with lasting rocky off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of treacle toffee, apricot marmalade, orange peel, red-currant and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, toffee, red fruit and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Gets a bit sweet after a while, but itís tasty and quite well balanced. Quite nice.

IndianaRed (3223) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 23, 2015
On Tap clear chestnut brown with a small skin of a lasting head. Sturdy lacing, Light toasted malt aroma, and woody light toast malt flavors. A slightly bitter astringent brown ale. Im used to a more fresh hoppy bit in redís. Still, not unpleasant.

Bottle may have been stored wrong. Lots of foam. A little sour. That said, the flavor is pretty good.

22oz in Seattle. Rosy Amber malts. Some sweet hops. It just tastes too clean, like others from this brewery.

Nicely crafted ESB, bitter with some sweet, syrupy malt in the background. Nice lasting velvety head on a medium amber body. Sweet aroma, bitter taste. Very enjoyable.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2014
I had this beer under itís pseudonym "Crystal Bitter ESB". Reddish amber brown in color with light tan head, medium collar, good lacing and wisps. Aroma is caramel malts and earthy hops. Taste is too bitter for a bitter in my opinion. I get some earthy hoppiness, burnt caramel, and wet wood. Medium body and medium carbonation as well.
