COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a nice description of the beer and it lists the abv at 6.8%. Appearance: The body has a dark garnet red color with a light haze and a tall light tan head. The head builds up quickly and settles slowly. The head also makes some nice glass lacing. Smell: Overall the nose is fairly light but I get some light malt with mild Belgian yeast notes. It’s mild fruity and funky come out more as it warms. I also pick up some mineral notes and some spicy vegetable like spicy notes from the Ancho chillies. Taste / Palate: Up front I get mildly sweet maltiness bring bready and fruity notes across the tongue. Apple, red pears and plums stand out here. Mild spicy notes as well as yeast notes move in and add some dryness. The finish has more dry spice as well as some light hop bitterness.

Bottle, from the Gibsons LDB.
Murky dark red. Aroma has more fruity acid notes than you’d expect. Malty, caramel mostly with some fruity character, and just a touch of ancho. Not entirely cohesive.
