Our brewmaster, Mats Ekholm, was inspired by the red brown granite of the Åland islands when he developed Stallhagen US Red Ale.

Before Prohibition, American Red Ale was a popular variation of the Irish Amber ale in the US. This top-yeast beer was made of domestic, American raw material. The ale is relatively light but clearly hopped with definite aromas of dried strawberries. The full bodied taste has notes of coffee with smokiness from roast coffee.

Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 12.2015? Translucent dark orange colour, head is light beige, big with good retention and lacing. The aroma is roughish hops and sweet delicate malts. Pretty weak. Taste is better and more pronounced, with very sweet maltiness most dominant, then a rather strong hop bitterness follows. Fruits, toffee, marmalade. It finishes somewhat metallic dry with lingering grassy bitterness. Body medium, carbonation average. Not bad.

nihtila (2750) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
8.6.2014. Darkish amber, thick white head. Woody and grassy aroma with dark fruits. Taste also has earthy hops, caramel malts. A bit stuffy and lacks some punch.

Bottle. Nice creamy mouthfeel and a raw herbal and tropical hoppiness. Nice balance!

Vighals (2935) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015
Orangebrun klar med høyt beige skum. Karamell, brød og lukt av kandissukker. Bittersøt smak, brent karamell. Den lette bitterheten sitter lenge.

Bottle 33cl traded with Nisse666 thanks. A light cloudy copper amber beer with good head and retention. Nose is nice on sweet malt and blond caramel. Aroma is on caramel, toffee and even vanilla touch, lot of grassy hops bitterness, light red fruit notes. With a bit more body this would be very nice.

0.33l bottle at Mariehamn. Beautiful red color, good head, sparkling body. Interesting fruity malt aroma of dried strawberries, mild coffee and some roasted smokiness. Refreshing fruity ale variante, easy to drink and quite tasteful... Fruity ending...

Hopmaestro (1203) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2014
Aroma is sweet and candy-ish. Toffee and light hops is present. The taste is as I expected but at the same time a little more exciting than I thought. Sweet caramels and toffee, a very slight fruity hop bite evolving into a clean, medium body. The aftertaste is very low on bitterness and if you like that kind of brew, you can try this one cause it is rather well balanced.

Light aroma of strawberries. The taste is bitter and slightly fruity. Okay bitterness that still fills the mouth for a long while. Feels okay to drink anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
