The creation of Flambeau Red starts with the selection of seven unique malts, to give a complex profile which is the foundation of this seasonal ale. Complemented by the barrage of three hop varieties, this is one incredibly well balanced American style red ale. The extreme depth of flavors are our focus, while the American ale yeast used for fermentation allows them to pop on the canvas that is Flambeau Red. The result of NOLAs latest seasonal brew is one incendiary beer, as bright and warm as the keepers of the flame that light the parade route during Mardi Gras nights.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy copper with large creamy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong caramel and pine. Medium mouth, bitter hop bite, toasted malt and pine, good.

Deep amber colour. The aroma is quite malty and a little bit sweet. Some iced tea and a bit of sweet resin as well. A little bit estery character in this one along with a bit of light bitterness. Pretty nice red ale.

Tap. Pours deep crazy mahogany reddish, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, bready, nutty. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, mega malty, caramel, dark bread, biscuit, roasted nuts. More like an Irish ale. Not a lot of hi Acton going on, maybe some faded pine.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2014
On tap at Avenue Pub post-Mardi Gras. Pours amber (duh). More malty than hoppy but fairly balanced overall. Nothing really standing out, but its a fine job and serves its purpose.

One of many local choices I ordered this to see what the local flavor is. After sampling a couple my suspicions were confirmed. Unless theres something I overlooked Abita is the best option for a state tick. Otherwise drink it for the atmosphere of being down south.

Aroma / Appearance - Ruby red with a glowing base the body is as warm as the humid air outside. Roses, cherries, and malt mix in the way that isnt flawed but doesnt have a punch. It is as lazy and listless as the warm summer afternoon during the peak of the day.

Flavor / Palate - Thin cherry Twizzlers tickle the palate before the transition becomes pie crust and malt. A bit timid and plain this is one of those beers that you forget as soon as you order the next pint. I dont think Ill be clamoring to try many more NOLA releases the next time I am in the neighborhood.
