1/15/11. Bottle at the Sea Bass tasting thanks to hopscotch! Huge fresh hop aroma with a sweeter somewhat disappointing flavor.

Draft at hopleaf, nose has citrusy hops, plasticy caramel malt, flavors stale doughy malts, citrus, grapefruit, oak, hints of vanilla, sweet booze finish. Perhaps a little fresher this could be good but as is not impressive.

bottle. Some shared this at the Freetail La Muerta release. Pours a cloudy brown with an off-white head. Nose is of oak and some citrus. Funny taste with the wood and herbs over the citrus. Meh. Mouthfeel was carbonated with a bitter finish.

On tap at the Bruery Provisions. Pours red...go figure. Smells of citrus and some piney hops. Some sweetness. Lots of bitterness at the end...more than I expected. Not much of the oaked flavor in there.

Sour & Bitter Festival CPH 2012. Cloudy copper with a small off-white head. Fruity and malty aroma with some green leaves. Dry and malty, slightly fruity flavour with a grainy finish.

This is certainly a different kind of red. It’s dirty red brown, almost orange in color, with glimmering, slitter-like sediment and an off-white head. Its aroma is heavy of caramel sweetness and a slightly soured wood. Very nice! Strong of oak, but not nauseatingly so, it’s light on the palate, but full-flavored with an almost buttery consistency. Althoug the oak presence is strong, its role in the flavor is tame. Instead, the flavor is dominated by an earthy hop and almost English-style malt bill. Overall, though, it still comes down to a very definitive red ale experience. Hats off to The Bruery for sticking to the style while still being adventurous.

On tap at the Bruery; a light brown color with a khaki like head. Aroma of citrus, fig, and dark fruit. Flavor had a bit more complexity with some caramel/toffee. Good overall.

Draught @ The Bruery, Placentia, CA
Pours clear orange/amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, grass, pine and forrest. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long bitter and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Bottle, thanks Phil for sharing. Nice red pour with white head. Aroma is a bit odd, vanilla, oak and some weird hop tones. Flavor follows, I’m not a fan but some friends disagreed.
