COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Decent ale from a style that usually is pretty boring. Somewhat hoppy with lemon zest in aroma and taste. Smooth and well balanced.

Bottle @ Åland ferry 20140802. Hazy red with large bubbles, ok head. Aroma of caramel, floral hops and yeast. Taste is similar with a tiny bit of alcohols and an US05ish yeasty tone. Rich maltiness, yet not too sweet and cloying. Well balanced.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a beautiful red. This beer isn’t actually from Finland but from the self governing Aaland islands (why the Faroese are a separate country in here and Aaland not, I don’t understand). The beer looks very good, but I thought it was too watery, too sweet and with sub standard hop taste. A bit metallic actually.
