History of the beer style
Imperial red ales are just a stronger version of red ales. They usually have a bright red color as well as slightly fruity yeast flavor and a balanced hop flavor and aroma. Ours is no different.
The Abita Selection : Saint Gleason Imperial Red Ale
Our Imperial Red Ale is made with a blend of pale, caramel, and aromatic malts. This gives the beer a bright red color and strong malty flavor. This blend of malts and the ale yeast gives the beer a slightly fruity and nutty characteristic. The beer is hopped with Cascade hops to give a citrus and piney hop flavor and aroma. This blends well with the malts to give the beer a very balanced taste
Our Imperial Red Ale is a robust beer that complements a number of dishes quite well. It is excellent with choice cuts of meat such as steak, lamb, and pork chops. Our beer stands up well with the strong flavors of these meats. The beer’s hop flavor will also complement spicy dishes like jambalaya, and blackened meats and seafoods.
