Cervecería Barbarian is one of the first Craft Breweries in Lima, Peru. Barbarian “Red Ale” is their first beer out on the market. It has a red copper color and a nice head that stays on the pint glass while you drink. It is also dry hopped with American Hops and mildly bitter. You can also find caramelized flavors from the special malts used during their brewing process. It is a flavorful, easy to drink English-like Ale influenced with a typical hop characteristic profile from American Ales.

MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2018
My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts and earthy hops are thrown into a frenzy but a super foamy feel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam caps the misty copper-hued red shine.
-This bottle gushed a little when opening.
-Hops develop a few peppery angles as well.
-Malts could be more generous for the style.

345 ml bottle. BB 11/03/18. At the Segundo Muelle, Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, Spain.
What a nice surprise to find Peruvian craft beer in this craft beer desert called Maspalomas. Clear amber color with a big foamy off-white head. Caramel malt, mild hops, mild bitterness and some dryness in the aroma. The flavor is caramel malt, dryness, hops, mild bitterness and some airy notes.

20cl pour at the Miraflores location, pours a ruddy, burnt orange with some cloudy white head. Nose has biscuit, malt, orange, mild soap. Flavor has more of the malt/apple thing red ales give you, some hop bitterness, soap, biscuit. Dry finish. Easy drinker. Good intro beer in this market.

It is a nice pale ale, in my point of view, a bit watery but a nice citrus hop, giving a pleasant taste, refreshing, particulary during this hot day in Lima for a family birthday. The color is classical, copper and orange, average carbonation.
