COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not your standard Red Ale. This is a very malty, roasty and complex Red Ale. The roasted flavor comes from the high presence of roasted barley. With a very minimal but high alpha hop addition, this Red Ale has become a favorite among patrons.

Draft at the brewery The ale poured a deep red color with a thin creamy head and no lacing. The aroma was of chocolate, and molasses. This is a nice red ale with a deceptive alcohol of 8%. The medium body ale had soft carbonation. If you have a chance to taste their beers try this one.

32 oz. growler from drowland- thanks, Dr. Owl, for this toob of random garbage! Shared this growler with Dan and Caroline. "Not your standard Red Ale" - quite obvious on the pour, which is basically brown, with a small beige head. Notes of big toasted malts, dry cocoa, grainy cereal- very simple and malty, and it seems like maybe a wide variety of malts were used. Makes sense, if theyre nowhere near matching color with name on this one. Medium-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Weird beer but not bad.

Dark mahogany pour, big tan head and good lacing; Roasted malts but could have done without the smokey resin. Finish is bitter.

Tap at Bold City. I am also not a big fan of red/imperial reds and most american strong ales. So BC wasnt batting to high for me. Metallic bitterness, some sweeter caramel malt. bleh.

Aurelius (5178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Wow, I got this blind in a shared growler and thought for sure that it was a porter. Roasted aroma and flavor, tangy aftertaste is the only hint of it being a red. Generally dry, with only very light sweetness. Medium-light body. Thanks to LuckyDog for sharing his retrieved growler in the Friday Meeting.

Pours a murky reddish-brown on tap with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, smokiness, and earthy hops. Taste follows with a decently balanced and bitter finish. Comes off more like a porter than a red, but probably one of Bold Citys best beers.
