COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wee Heavy Ale: Powerful caramel malt flavor, finishing climatically with a smooth warming sensation. Deep Red. 19.9°

Erie Brewing Company presents the beer previously know as “Red Ryder BIG Beer.” Red Ryder was dubiously awarded two “cease and desist” orders for its name. So with its unique new name (inspired by the long arm of the law), Ol’ Red Cease and Desist brings more to the table than just a big, malty flavor and climaxing warm sensation, it brings a legal record!

Editor’s note: Formerly known as both "Red Ryder Big Beer" and "Red Ryder Ale".

redpooba (404) - Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Red ale with a white head. Bold and strong on the nose which is slightly still hot. The ABV is 10.1 yet it is really well blended into the beer. The overall is quite nice.

Clear reddish-brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of toast and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and full of caramel flavor. Medium bodied and slightly syrupy.

Bottle thanks to Justin. Poured a one finger head with a nice mahogany color. Pretty decent aromas of caramel, toffee, honey, butterscotch, alcohol grain. Lighter texture but still has a big beer feel. Medium light bitterness. Slight metallic taste. One of the better ones I’ve had from Erie.

Taken from old notes. Dark orange pour with a nose of sweet malts and caramel. Bitter to go along with the sweet malts. Sweetish aftertaste. 10.1% is very well hidden.

bbaxter (12) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2012
On tap. Pours a deep amber with a thin, quickly vanishing head. aroma is malted caramel and fruit. Taste is somewhat vegetable-esque with dry sour fruit. Mouth feel is carbonated and then slightly dry.

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Tap at oblivion. Aromas of light cherries, smoke and roast, some booze, and caramel. Taste is similar with a noticeable roasted character coming through. An interesting offering.
