Cask (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. One of a surprising number of beers from New Mexico at GBBF - how’d that happen? Coppery colour more than red. Excellent hop presence in the aroma - a good mix of pine, grapefruit and herbaceous. Just a touch of toffeeish malt. Firm hoppy stuff on the palate too. This sort of thing can descend into a rather sticky, caramel mess but no such issues here - the hops and firm mouthfeel kept everything in check. Well-balanced and most enjoyable.

After the boring Amber, my expectations for the Red were pretty low. Well, I was really impressed by this beer. It’s a very strong example, so there is room to pack in some burly flavour. Dark amber-red colour is already a step ahead of the game. Smells good - probably the Simcoe talking. This hop character combines well with the richer crystal malts used. Rich, nuanced, almost smoky, there’s a lot of reasons to give the Red a second look.
