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!

Clear red brown beer. Soft palate. Rich malt with a distinct and pleasing bitter cream flavour. A hint of hop fruit and a splach of alcohol spice at the end. Very nicely joined up beer.

Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rich mahogony with a foamy, tan head. Strong malt aroma with tons of toffee and ripe fruit. Has a barley wine-esque sweetness to it, quite intense, with bread, caramel, more toffee and plum, along with some light, earthy bitterness. Medium to full in body with soft carbonation and a creamy texture. Some brown sugar is also in the flavor, coming out later. Finishes very sweet with lightly toasted malts and toffee. Delicious beer.
