75% American Red Ale, 25% Ale Aged in American Oak Barrels. A brash American Red ale, dripping with citrusy Centennial hops, mellowed by a touch of oak. Aromas of toffee, citrus, crushed herbs, vanilla and fresh-sawn oak. Complex!

pours a redish brown with an off white head. Big Centennial hop nose and taste. Also picked up the woodiness from the barrel. There is a lot going on in the beer the back tast was for sweet and citrus fruits, spices, and malt. Interesting beer.

Draft. Pours hazy amber brown with a beige head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, pine, and sweet malts. The flavor has citric hops, sweet malts, oak, some light flowery notes, and a nice bitter finish. Pretty good.

Certainly earthy, this brew is complex, mightily honest, and chalked full of oak and applewood notes. Loakal Red doesn’t have an aversion to modesty, and the ever changing flavors play bumper cars against your tongue, each new sip you take, to create a verbose experience. It might not blow the lid off of any Best Tasting Beer categories, but what it lacks in taste it more than makes up with its fearless charm and its ornate body. Solid work.

Firkin at the bruery with added Spanish cedar. Big cedar nose, little orange. Hazy burnt orange. Strong tannic cedar body, softens in sharpness but stays rich and full. Cedar everywhere, must be dramatically different from the original.

Really glad I got to try this one. The beer pours an amber color with a huge white head. The aroma is classic red ale with a lot of caramel malt and a little bit of grass, but I also get a lot of oak notes from the barrel aging. While the aroma is good, the flavor is better and more complex. I get a lot of caramel malt notes, as well as some oak, maple and vanilla. I also get a little bit of cherry and other dark fruit in the aroma which is a welcome addition. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice, relatively low alcohol barrel aged beer.

Sampled on tap at the Bruery Provisions on 7/16/2011. This amber ale pours a medium reddish color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head, with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is fruity, sweet, caramel and a touch of wood. A medium bodied amber ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral. Medium carbonation. Touch of oak. Nicely balanced. Very drinkable. I kind of wish all ambers tasted like this. It has a nice malt sweetness up front with some nice hoppiness to balance the sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

750ml bottle thanks to mora2000. Deep amber color with a soapy white head. Wonderful hop aromas - citrus, herbal, and resiny with caramel, oak, and toffee. Tastes even better than it smells - tropical fruit, wood, sticky hops, and cinnamon. Delicious!

750ml bottle from Luckyhank, thanks Brendan! Pours a mostly clear, deeper red-copper colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is really nice. Lots of fruity, floral and herbal hops with a light pine. Lemons, pineapples, grapefruits, melons, and some sweeter oranges. Hops mix nicely with a good amount of toffee, a growing vanilla, a light oak, a touch of biscuit, and a bit of a rye spiciness. Flavor is fruity with a good amount of vanilla and grainy malts up front. A mellow oak comes in before the hops really kick in and the bitterness grows. Toffee, a light biscuit, a touch of caramel, and some more rye spiciness mixes with florals, herbal hops, and a light pine. Lemons, grapefruit, and a light orange grows towards the end along with the vanilla where this finishes dry with a bready-toffee and moderate, spicy floral bitterness. A bit of a toastiness to the lingering toffees, oak, vanilla, and soapy florals that stick out in a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and soft, moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a really solid beer. Lots going on here, but it all comes together nicely. Well hopped and fruity with some spiciness and plenty of florals balanced well with bready toffees, oak, and vanilla. Very enjoyable.
