Scarlet Letter Red – A departure from our usual Red ale with this malty and quite hoppy brew.

On tap in a pint glass: Pours redish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, light spice, and floral. Taste is that of your standard red with a little hop kick at the end. Caramel, medium sweetness, medium body, with a floral hop note. Smooth mouthfeel, pretty solid beer, especially for a red.

On draft at the brewery, this is probably the first imperial red that I have liked. What’s so good is that its very toasty with a dry finish. Clean beer.

great looking beer, crystal clear reddish brown with perfect head. tastes good, but lacks complexity.

This was a very pleasant red ale, reminds me of their Rural Route Red, with a slightly beefed up hop profile. Pours a slightly murky reddish brown, with a finger of tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel, toffee, brown sugar, citric fruit, lemon grass, and fresh cut grass. There’s a lot going on in the aroma for a red ale, and flavor follows suit. Starts with wonderful sweet grain, light toffee and biscuit, follow by a nice assertive bitterness, some citric, with lots of grassy floral hops. Definitely worth a taste, or a growler fill.
