COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our newest offering Fracas Imperial Red is a deep crimson, bordering on brick red. The nose is big grapefruit, with subtle hints of pine, watermelon and honeydew. The hops are just bitter enough to stand up to the sweet malt and caramelized sugar flavor of the malts. The roast barley gives it depth of color without being overly astrigent or burnt/acrid. The hops in the finish are ever present and the flavor mimics the nose of the beer. Fracas has a slighlty chewy mouthfeel and finishes with a nice caramel sweetness yet without flabbiness in the body.

ALIBALI (1278) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2016 Optisch der klassisch rotbrunliche Vertreter, mit viel viel Trbstoffen. Klasse. In der Nase der Centennialmalzbrecher, wurde zwar nicht verwendet, ist fr mich aber die Metapher fr die Hochzeit von Malz und amerikanischen Aromenhopfen, die ein ppiges ROTES Aroma voller Hopfenherbe versprhen. Im Mund dann samtig und voller oben genannten Flavours. Solide, aber nicht sehr speziell, obwohl der Nachhall voller Assoziationen zu verbrannten Candiszucker im Red Fruit Krbchen sind. Die 0,33l Flasche, ein Member von Bommels Bande beim ROLLING STONE WEEKENDER 2016. Thanx Brother 😘.
