A bigger, bolder version of Silver City’s flagship beer, Big Red-Imperial Ridgetop maintains the smooth, flavorful balance of the original Ridgetop Red only with more of everything. More malt, more hops, more flavor. Just in time for winter. Northwest Liberty hops and three select German specialty malts combine with a cooler, slower fermentation to produce a distinct Northwest ale with a smooth body and crisp finish.

Tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle - 08/11/12.
Slightly obscured reddish brown with a big off white head - this looks the bollocks (shame it didn’t continue that way!!!).
Nose comprises caramel malts, hops, pine, sugar, hints of strawberry licqeur.
Tastes of sweet caramel malt, strawberry, pine, sugary sugary sugary.
Medium body with soft carbonation leading to a sweet over sugared finish.
Way too sweet becoming a little undrinkable towards the end and I did in fact give up 2/3rds of the way through my 12oz pour!
