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.

Smell of hops. Copper red colour, beige head. Fruity, strong malty aftertaste. Sweet, some caramel to be noticed. Also some hoppy bitterness, some IPA qualities, even more when warmer.

Toffee-caramel , dark bread, bit syrup, citrus,pine. Hazy orange/red, 2 finger off-white creamy head goes bit fast. Bit fruit sweetness, balanced with medium bitterness, medium body, bit fizzy carbonation, bitter finish is long, texture bit creamy. Nicely flavored and easy to drink.

On tap. Aroma with strong hop notes at first bit they disappeared pretty fast. Also caramel and some grain notes. Taste is balanced and rich, very nice. Caramel and grain notes balanced by a sharp but dominating hop bitterness. Nest I’ve had from Stallhagen.

tkrjukoff (4243) - SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2011
Tap @ The Oak Barrel, Helsinki Airport. Pours ruby dark amber with a creamy beige head leaving nice lace. Aroma is fresh, malty, fruity, slightly toasted and hoppy. Flavor is very nice; great deal of dark roasted malts, fruity, bitter, a bit sweet and caramel. Finishes with a great malty and bitter aftertaste. Love the big malty taste.

esox (1224) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Draught. Deep red colour, thin creamy head. Freshly hopped nose, citrusfruits and sweeter peach, maybe mango. Nice caramelly malt base, biscuit, slightly nutty finish. Sweetish caramel start, bitterish finish. Fruity yeast notes. Fresh and smooth texture, medium body, good balance. Enjoyable, very drinkable beer.

Quite regular amber ale, still very good and enjoyable. Quite light mouthfeel, well balanced anyway. Nice hoppiness.

Marstonlad (659) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Pours clear copper with a big, frothy head. Aroma has dark fruitiness and notes of berries and caramel maltiness - decent, something from both malts and hops. Taste is light sweet, very smooth and malty. Caramel, toffee and dark fruits dominate, also some strawberries. Palate is light to medium bodied, not watery. Very smooth texture. Not bad at all, both malts and hops in the flavours.
