This homage to Willie Nelson is a hoppy red ale great for fall weather. It has a strong malt backbone with an assertive bitterness of sticky sweet American hops (Nugget, Columbus, Chinook and Cascade). Red Headed Stranger pairs with red tamales, Texas barbecue, rich blue cheeses, and poached pears. It comes in at 6.3% ABV and an aggressive 65 IBU. Hops are a cousin to one of Willieís favorite plants, so we think he would approve of this unique seasonal!

San Antonio, TX - Total Wine & More - The Rim - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, frothy. thick, bone colored head that leaves a nice thick trail of lacing. Aroma has some cherry fruity sweetness, some woody tannic notes. Flavor has some nutty notes, a bit of sweet cherry fruitiness, some light citrus bitterness. Not headed in any real direction. Decently thick mouthfeel.

Thought this was an IPA, and thought it was tame, but half way through I find out itís an amber, and a very solid one .. . Red malts, pine, seed shells, and sweet crust resin .. . Good amber ale, if thatís your bag .. . . I should buy a machete.

Beautiful looking brew. Dark red with nice head but that is about all it had to offer. There is a slight aroma of toffee mixed with something like soap maybe... Just not a "I wanna drink this" aroma. The taste is like most of the brews that was something good messed up by adding more hops. Can tell there is a wonderfully good malt background but then it was killed by massive hops. Not even sure what to say about the hops... citrus, pine, ???? just is not right. Just 5 more to go and that will be the last of that for me.

Tap at Craft Pride. This in is a little off in hard to describe ways. Malt and bitterness do not combine well. A little harsh.

Dark reddish brown, slightly hazy with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, some hops. Malty flavor with a little citrus and bitterness in the finish. Okay.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent brown/maroon color. Very light carbonation, wafer thin white head with several frog eyes upon the liquid surface. Aroma of malt and refined sugar. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt isnít soaked in caramel which is highly refreshing, some hops in the middle, finish is lightly acidic with a little sweetness. Itís ok.

A little bitter, and a little sweet, which is a nice combination for me. Low in carbonation, it's very easy to drink. It's a beautiful ruby red, but I don't really taste much malt.
